I want to send a notification to my python app whenever someone sends money to my mobile money account. But I am still wandering around. How do I go about this?

I have learned how to create the access token and how to register for the Notifications product on How do i get my app working?

I wish to get real time transaction details immediately when money is received.

Any help or idea will be much appreciated.

The Notification As a Service is used to send extra information on a successful debit or successful transfer transaction. 

Use the Callbacks to get notified of a successful or failed status.

Thank you for the reply.

It is true, Callbacks can help get information on payments from the requesttoPay, etc. But I want  to get notified even if I didn’t request the payment or when the payment is not done on the app. Apart from callbacks, can I use other ways to receive notifications?
