Frequently asked questions

  1. What API means?
    An Application Programming Interface, an API, is essentially a communication protocol between different software components. It's like a handbook of procedures that different software applications follow to interact with each other. APIs are integral to modern technology, enabling various software systems to share data and functionalities, resulting in sophisticated and interconnected digital solutions.
  2. What is API invoicing?
    API invoicing is the automated generation, transmission, and management of invoices using an Application Programming Interface (API). This technique enhances invoicing efficiency by using software-to-software communication, enabling swift invoice processing, reduced errors, and simplified accounts receivables management.
  3. Is API a payment gateway?
    An API (Application Programming Interface) is not a payment gateway but a tool that facilitates communication between software applications. In the context of payments, a payment gateway, which authorizes and processes transactions, uses an API to interact with other systems like merchant websites. While a payment gateway securely transmits customer data and processes transactions, the API sends the transaction information to the gateway and the response back to the website. Thus, while an API is a vital part of how a payment gateway operates, it's not a gateway itself but a tool the gateway uses to interact with other systems.
  4. What is API in payments?
    Payment APIs, or Application Programming Interfaces, allow merchants to integrate various payment methods into their platforms flexibly. These APIs allow businesses to quickly scale their payment offerings and adapt to different markets by enabling or disabling specific payment methods as required. By streamlining the transaction process, payment APIs enhance customer experience, increase efficiency, and offer secure payment solutions tailored to diverse market demands.
  5. What is API billing?
    API billing pertains to charging for API (Application Programming Interface) usage based on the number of calls, data transferred, or features used. API providers typically adopt usage-based pricing models on a per transaction or subscription basis, often with minimum monthly commitments.
  6. Invoicing vs. billing?
    "Invoicing" refers to creating and sending a detailed list of goods or services provided, usually indicating a future payment. On the other hand, "billing" involves generating a statement of charges, often demanding immediate payment, and can be less detailed. Invoicing is for future payments, while billing is for immediate ones.
  7. What is API in accounting?
    In accounting, an Application Programming Interface (API) enables interaction between different software systems, automating data transfer and enhancing efficiency. For instance, an API can connect accounting software with other systems like e-commerce platforms, CRM software, or payment gateways. This helps automatically update financial records like sales, expenses, or inventory data, reduce manual data entry, enhance accuracy, and provide real-time financial insights. Essentially, API in accounting streamlines business operations and facilitates better financial management.
  8. What is API payment method?
    An API Payment Method refers to using APIs to facilitate and process payments.
  9. Will API replace EDI?
    While APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) offer real-time data exchange and seamless integration with modern applications, making them increasingly popular, it's unlikely they will completely replace EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) in the near future. EDI is deeply entrenched in industries like healthcare, logistics, and retail, where it handles standardized transactions. Transitioning fully from EDI to APIs would involve significant system changes and costs. Therefore, a hybrid approach, using both APIs and EDI, depending on the specific situation, is more probable.
