Subscription Overview

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.

Build & Test
