I do not trust anything, even my own code. The point of webhooks is to allow immediate notifications between different parties. That's a requirement of nowadays where everything should happened very fast, almost instantly. Sending some regular request to the 3rd party from your application should be as a fallback solution, to make sure that the data is in sync in case something went wrong with the webhooks. Though, in 99.9% of cases it all we be fine with webhooks.
