Magento has a very good soap API using which you can do almost every actions required for a webstore. Magento has a documentation (not a great one) on how to use the API. Follow this URL: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/m1x/api/soap/introduction.html

If you enable all caches, the API should work with a good speed. If you are not satisfied with what Magento has, or need more functionality like order address edit, you can do it yourself by following the API creation documentation http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/m1x/api/soap/create_your_own_api.html .
