Can I solely rely on webhooks in terms of its delivery content

Not applicable

 

Hi! I'm currently confused about the best practice of dealing with Shopify's webhooks.

 

I'm using webhooks to integrate Shopify's order data to external SaaS platform in real time manner. I understand that depending solely on webhook is not recommended in the sense that the delivery of the webhook is not always assured.  But, how about the content of the webhook? Is the content of Shopify webhook assured? Would there be any data loss in the webhook? 

 

So currently, I'm calling API to fetch the specific order data after hearing webhooks. But is this process really necessary if the webhooks contain all the data I need?
