Adding postback notification for a Buy Now button in external website.

I have a Buy Now button that's been added to an external website. The website takes in the registration information and then uses a Buy Now button to allow them to pay. In PayPal there is support to have a postback happen to the calling website to notify the site as to whether the payment was successful. How do you do that with a Shopify Buy Now button? I need to have the postback so I can flag the registration as paid, or flag it as a failed payment if that is the case. I haven't found any references in the documentation so far as to if this is even supported.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Use webhooks.

In your Shopify dashboard go to Notifications and at the bottom go to Webhooks and choose one that is suitable.
