Webhooks with flask localhost

Hello, I am currently using flask to build a basic web app to handle webhooks sent from my shop.
When hosting my flask app I am setting the host = '0.0.0.0' to allow connections from across the network.
The problem I'm having is when I try to set the URL for these webhooks on Shopify I receive an error that the address is not allowed.
Here is what the webhook url looks like 
https://192.111.1.222:5000/neworder

 

I am also using vs code in case anyone knows of an extension that will assist me in this issue,

Thanks!

Hi @JoeV2 👋

 

As noted in the webhook limitation docs here, a localhost URL is not a HTTPS endpoint to receive webhooks. One option would be a tool like ngrok to create a secure tunnel to your localhost. 

 

Hope that helps!
