4. Head over to your Brightback account and select Settings > Alerts & Webhooks > Add
5. Enter the Custom Webhook URL you copied from step 3, select the event you would like notifications for, and click Add webhook.
Note: Take a look at our webhook article to see what an example payload from a Brightback event looks like.what event you would like to track.

If your cancel experiences are already live you can simply wait for a canceller to come through or generate a session yourself by logging in to your site as a user and clicking cancel. When a cancel session event occurs an event will POST to Zapier. Click on a recent request or Load More.

9. Next choose an App event from Zapier's library. There are many to choose from.
10. Set up your action. Using the appropriate steps for the App you have chosen. The entire Brightback session payload will be available to you. That includes Custom and Standard JS fields, Enrichment fields from Billing providers or Salesforce as well as Survey responses, Feedback, and Accepted Offers depending on the event type you chose.
