Nowadays I can't imagine integration with some 3rd parties without webhooks. For instance payment processing. After successful payment you cannot rely on the client in order to confirm the successful payment. Waiting for some regular cron job which can run even every minute to confirm the payment status on the server side is OK and should be in place as a fallback option, but it is way too slow. So webhooks is a "must" for communication between different parties in order to notify each other about any events.
