Detect captures and refunds
Captures and refunds made via your Stripe account can be automatically detected by WP Hotelier. When a refund is detected, the corresponding reservation is marked as " Refunded" and the rooms are available again.
To enable this feature you need to add a new " Webhook URL" in your Stripe account. In your Stripe account, go to Stripe API > Developers > Webhooks and click on "Add endpoint".
For the URL, insert something like this:
Replace " https://example.com" with the URL of your website.
Select "Latest API version".
Events to send
Select charge.refunded. And if you're using Stripe in "Capture later" mode, select also charge.captured. Don't select that event in normal mode.
