Since I am a beginner to Magento, would you please be so Kind to give me detailed information? Thanks in advance


Magento comes with a SOAP and REST API out of the box.

Magento SOAP API: https://www.magentocommerce.com/api/soap/introduction.html

Magento REST API: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/m1x/api/rest/introduction.html

The REST API does not offer as much functions as the SOAP API so you need to have a look what functions you need.
