In a relatively short time, the Stripe API has become a popular choice amongst developers wanting to incorporate payments into their apps. While its simple documentation and quick setup have received most of the attention, it's also a robust platform. Among the features that have endeared it to developers are events, which use webhooks to update apps on incidents of note.
