Creating an app to only allow checkout if postal code / zipcode is valid (from a local database)

Hello everyone,

Just started reading the documentation on shopify developers and quickly got overwhelmed by so much information and options that are available.


My goal is to create a step on the checkout process where only delivery addresses with a specific postal code / zipcode can be completed. 
I already looked into available apps, but a lot of them lock the "add to cart" option but the user can always change the address on checkout so it's no good. Also being a developer, I would like to learn more and implement this myself.

Now the question is:
- Where to start? What is the API or solution that shopify give us so I can try and create something to achieve this goal?
I don't want to create a whole storefront and checkout just for this since i woud like to continue to use the themes aspect of shopify.

Could any1 point me in the right direction? 

Thank you very much!

Hey Mate. 


You can't really interact with the checkout screen or process unless you're a Shopify Plus merchant.
My first guess would be you could do it by restricting Shipping regions. That would be the easiest way I reckon
