I am new to Magento, but what I need to do is:

after the order is saved, I have to call an external webservice and pass some order data to this service.

Where or what is the best place to do so?

thanks in advance

  • Which magento version? Every time order saved (create/update) or after place order?

Your function

    $order = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder();
