What are webhooks?

A webhook is a way for one website to send information to another website automatically. Think of it like a "phone call" between two websites. One website "calls" the other website by sending a message, and the other website "answers" by receiving the message and doing something with the information it contains. This allows one website to "talk" to another website and perform tasks automatically.
