For terminology, you subscribe to an endpoint. There are several endpoints available and will provide the changes related to that specific endpoint.

You can use the following subscription endpoints:
Request Body
The request body to be provided to the endpoints is a JSON body with the key being the name of the notification endpoint you wish to subscribe to / unsubscribe from. And the value being the URL you are using to receive our notification.
The same object is required when interacting with either endpoint described below. The notification endpoints available are described below.
{
"[ENDPOINT NAME]": "YOUR WEBHOOK URL"
}

Subscribe

/api/1.0/account?action=subscribeToNotifications - POST
This endpoint will allow you to subscribe to a new notification type.
Response
The response that you will receive will be very similar to this. It will show you the current status of all of the notifications that you currently subscribe to. In the example below, this is a response when subscribed to the companies notification.
{
"eventsSuccess": false,
"eventsTopicId": null,
"venuesSuccess": false,
"venuesTopicId": null,
"paymentsSuccess": false,
"paymentsTopicId": null,

}
When you have subscribed to a notification, the endpoint you have provided will receive a message containing specific information about the notification you have subscribed to. Below is an example of a message from the iVvy API.
{
"Type": "SubscriptionConfirmation",
"MessageId": "9a55edb6-b3e8-4cef-9eee-6d302d24c5ac",
"Token": "2336412f37fb687f5d51e6e2425f004ae03ffa22ff5caccf7d0",
"TopicArn": "arn:aws:sns:ap-southeast-2:232528047142:iVvy_Account5_d7336c818a0bf60d087_NotifCompanies",

"SubscribeURL": "https://sns.ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/?Action=ConfirmSubscription&TopicArn=arn:aws:sns:ap-southeast-2:232528047142:iVvy_Account_818a0bf60d087_NotifCompanies&Token=2336412",

"SigningCertURL": "https://sns.ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/SimpleNotificationService-a89c941702d737128f7b6.pem"
}
