Third-party API integration is when an entity uses a third-party API to enable integration with another business application or web service. For example, your business may use the Google API to enable Google Ads integration with your website. This is a third-party API integration. An API developed by an external company will have requirements and regulations, so it is not the right solution if you need to customize the API for business or client needs. Still, in most cases, Third Party API will meet your requirement and be a secure and productive solution.
In most cases, there is no real need to rename a tire. For example, why go through the process of developing, designing, and using a maps map with an in-house API when you can easily use Google Maps?
And, and probably the most interesting – since you do not have a Third Party API, there is very little to keep. As Barley observes, “External company APIs are reliable if you choose the best service, and can provide you with all the data you may need to run your business, without the hassle of doing it yourself.”
Additionally, the Third Party API may enable you to deal with an issue with different views that you would not get from your internal developers.
Yes, it is important to note, you will want to consider the rules and regulations of the Third Party APIs before choosing one. You may find the Third Party APIs rules too restrictive, and will not be able to do what you need to do.
