Do subscription orders trigger the orders/create webhook?

When a user subscribes to a subscription for i.e. coffee, will the orders/create webhook be triggered for every coffee they receive or just for the initial subcription placement?

Thanks 🙂

Hello @Panagiotis_Tsar! Yes, an orders/create webhook should fire every time an order is created: whether it be through one-off purchases, or each instalment of an ongoing subscription. So in your example, it would be for each coffee they receive (assuming the subscription is for one coffee per instalment).
