In this post, we will show how to push Stripe events to Apache Kafka using Upstash Webhook API. Once data is in Kafka there are many use cases how you can use it:
- Processing payment events (with Apache Flink or Spark) to notify your business and sales team.
- Trigger processes such as sending Slack messages or email if a payment fails.
- Using a Kafka connector to move the data to a database or data warehouse to feed reporting and analytics applications.
- Feeding new payment activity data to your CRM.
