I would require to be able to receive the event specified on this page:

How can I subscribe to the following webhook topics:  SubscriptionChargeAccepted, SubscriptionChargeActivated, SubscriptionChargeActivated objects? 


Since these events are app-specific and not store-specific, what would the endpoint be?

Hello! Thanks for the question.


This forum section is typically for question regarding subscriptions and selling plans (customers purchasing subscriptions). But I did reach out to our app developer team and got this response:


It looks like they want to make a Partner API client and use that to query for app events. You can make a partner API client in the partner org settings:{orgId}/settings/partner_api_clients 


Once you’ve made a client there is a link to a graphql client you can test withthe query would look something like this
app(id: {some app id}) {
    events(first: 100) {
      edges {
        node {
          app {

They said that the app events were not webhooks, so you would need to fetch it each time. The existing webhooks that have "subscription" in the name reference the recurring purchase type of subscription, not for app development. Apologies if that caused any confusion.
