Here are some types of alerts on Stripe that you might want to consider setting up:
Successful Payments: Receive notifications for successful payments to stay informed about the positive aspects of your business. This can help you track revenue and customer transactions.
Failed Payments: Set up alerts for failed payments to quickly identify and address issues such as insufficient funds, expired cards, or other payment failures. This allows you to proactively reach out to customers to resolve payment issues.
Refunds: Stay informed about refund transactions. Monitoring refunds helps you keep track of customer requests for returns and ensures that the appropriate amounts are credited back to their accounts.
Disputes and Chargebacks: Receive alerts for disputes and chargebacks initiated by customers. Timely notification allows you to respond promptly, providing necessary documentation and working to resolve disputes in your favor.
Subscription Events: If your business uses subscription billing, set up alerts for events such as subscription creation, cancellation, or modification. This helps you manage customer subscriptions effectively.
Subscription Renewals: Stay informed about upcoming subscription renewals. This can be particularly useful for businesses with subscription-based models to anticipate revenue and manage customer retention.
Low Account Balance: If you use Stripe Connect or have multiple connected accounts, set up alerts for low balances. This ensures that you are aware of accounts with insufficient funds and can take appropriate actions to prevent disruptions.
Payout Failures: Receive notifications for payout failures. Payout issues can arise due to various reasons, such as incorrect bank details or account verification problems. Prompt alerts help you address payout issues and ensure timely fund transfers.
API Errors: Monitor API errors to be aware of any issues with your integrations or communication between your systems and Stripe. This allows you to identify and resolve technical issues quickly.
Custom Events: Depending on your business needs, define custom events for specific activities or triggers relevant to your operations. This could include events like large transactions, high-value subscriptions, or specific customer behaviors.
Authentication Events: Stay informed about successful and failed authentication attempts. This helps you monitor the security of your payment system and take appropriate action if suspicious activity is detected.
