GoHighLevel Subscription Requirements for Webhooks

GoHighLevel subscribers who want to use webhooks that require a third-party platform, such as Zapier, need to be subscribed to the Unlimited plan.

This is because they require API access, which is unavailable on the entry-level GoHighLevel plan.

In contrast, inbound webhooks are available on all GoHighLevel subscription plans.
