What Happens if My Webhook Is Down

AfterShip Shipping sent the events for each webhook URL with POST request.

If the webhook URL doesn't return a 200 HTTP response code, that POST request will be re-attempted up to 14 times in increasing intervals: 2^number_of_fail x 30s 

If the attempt fail, AfterShip Shipping will retry the 2nd attempt 30s later.
If the 5th attempts fail, AfterShip Shipping retry the 6th attempt 960s later
If the 14th attempts fail, AfterShip Shipping retry not send out that webhook any more.
