About webhooks and GitHub Marketplace
POST requests have special headers. See "Webhook events and payloads" for more details. GitHub doesn't resend failed delivery attempts. Ensure your app can receive all webhook payloads sent by GitHub.
Cancellations and downgrades take effect on the first day of the next billing cycle. Events for downgrades and cancellations are sent when the new plan takes effect at the beginning of the next billing cycle. Events for new purchases and upgrades begin immediately. Use the
effective_date in the webhook payload to determine when a change will begin.
Note: If you notice any spammy GitHub Marketplace purchases or other malicious behavior, please complete the report abuse form with more information on the user.
