Webhooks

Find out which webhooks Adyen sends for payout-related events.

Payment webhooks

For information on which payment webhooks Adyen sends for payout-related events, see Payment webhooks (deprecated).

When a payout is triggered in your platform, Adyen sends two kinds of webhooks:

To keep track of payout-related events in your platform, make sure that:

You can identify transfer webhooks triggered by payout-related events by the following values:

Parameter Description Value
category Specifies the category of the transfer. bank
direction The direction of the transfer based on the balance account. outgoing
type Specifies the type of the transfer. bankTransfer

Payout initiated

After a scheduled or on-demand payout is triggered, Adyen sends a balancePlatform.transfer.created webhook to inform your server that an outgoing transfer request has been created. The webhook provides information about the transfer, such as the payout amount, the payout and beneficiary references, the account holder information of the user receiving the payout, and from which balance account will the funds be deducted.

Payout failed

The payout transfer can fail if it is rejected by an external banking system and any potential automatic retry attempts are unsuccessful. For payouts using instant bank transfers with end-to-end confirmation from the counterparty's bank, this is the status when counterparty's bank rejects the transfer.

When a payout transfer fails, Adyen sends a balancePlatform.transfer.updated webhook with status failed, the transactionId, and the reason for the failure. For more information, see Reason codes.
