I’d like to get a better understanding of the stripe integration.

So far I’ve

Are both of these necessary?   Do we need to tell the RevenueCat receipts API about a purchase, or can RevenueCat get this information from the connection created in my first bullet point above?

What does the connection do versus what does telling the receipts API do?  Can I get an explanation on how these two things work together?

Hey @ross-staszak-7f26c4!

Only the first step is required, sending the receipts to RevenueCat. Setting up the webhook connection can help cut down on delivery times of updated purchase information for any other integrations and reduce any lag time for charts, but it’s not necessary in order for the Stripe integration itself to be successful. 

You can find some more information about the Stripe webhook server notifications here: https://www.revenuecat.com/docs/platform-resources/server-notifications/stripe-server-notifications
