A client of mine has an online store built in Wordpress / Woocommerce. We need to setup a web hook to notify another system when an an order is complete and payment has been received.

I've successfully setup a web hook for when the order is complete, however this isn't confirmation of when paypal payment is received.

I've tried to search Google, but can't seem to find an answer. How do you setup a web hook when paypal payment has been received?

Since you're already using WordPress / WooCommerce I would recommend installing the PayPal IPN for WordPress plugin.

This will get you up and running quickly with IPN catch-all solution, and it provides hooks for you to use for triggering your own functions based on the transaction type and/or payment status of a transaction.

For example, you could use the "paypal_ipn_for_wordpress_payment_status_completed" hook to run some code every time a PayPal payment is completed.  You could use different hooks for pending payments, failed payments, etc.

So within your hook functions you can update WordPress / WooCommerce data, hit 3rd party web services, send out customized email notifications, or whatever else you need to automate based on the transaction details.
