The Opt Out Event

The "opt out" event is a webhook event that is triggered whenever any of your textwords experiences an opt out. This event will happen in any of the following circumstances...

  • A contact is manually opted out from the dashboard.
  • Someone texts STOP to your shortcode.

NOTE: there is a difference between deleting a contact and opting them out in your dashboard. The opt out webhook event is only triggered if you are opting a contact out of a list.


Below is an example of the JSON data you'd receive from the "Opt Out" event.
