Modern online shops require a connection to other services, plugins and tools. That is why eCommerce API for developers is needed. It increases the speed of development or the number of features on the site hence site’s competitiveness and attractiveness.
Ecommerce APIs usually are integrated into websites that have a purchasing functionality. This is caused because of the complicated development of integrated services, a connection between front- and back-end parts. It is more convenient to include already done software into those, which you develop than spend additional costs on developing your own payment resource. Anyway, all purchasing will be connected to a bank account and a mechanism to transfer costs makes sense.
API integration for eCommerce websites also might be not only a separate plugin. We develop a back-end part of sites. It plays a role of an API anyway because it helps front-end to act. SpdLoad can either build a custom API for your project or integrate CMS, which will provide you with all requests processes that OpenCart REST API does, for example.
