Subscriptions enable you to receive incoming data for our mutual customers to your service’s HTTPS endpoint in realtime.
A Subscription gives you complete control over how you want to store, transform and process the data. It means that our mutual customers can immediately start sending you data from any one of Segment’s sources, including a web browser, mobile apps, or from our mutual customer’s servers — with no added work. Segment Business Tier customers can also replay historical data, which means you can demonstrate the value of your tool rapidly.
Review the steps outlined in the Developer Center Overview. This document outlines specific details for Step 4 as it relates to building a subscription.

NOTE: On July 31, 2021 support for building Subscription Functions was removed from Developer Center. You may continue building Subscription Webhooks in place of Subscription Functions. Work has begun on Developer Center 2.0 which will offer a more holistic approach to building on Segment. If you’re interested in joining the beta in the coming months, please fill out this form!
