At what point in the webhook calls can we safely say an order has been paid for?


We are trying to set up an automation system so that when an order is submitted and has been 100% paid for we will run X system with that order.

Currently we have it so that on order.created we will handle that order assuming it has been paid for but I am led to believe that his is possibly not the correct way of doing it. What is the official Square suggested approach to knowing that an order is truly 100% completed?

If there is no net_amount_due_money on the order then the order has been fully paid for. :slightly_smiling_face:

Ah okay so should we be listening to the order.updated webhook then?

Yes, it’s good to listen to both in case order.created is the only event that’s trigged for a completed order. :slightly_smiling_face:
