    Best Way To Describe an API

    If you had to describe an API to someone completely new to the industry with little to no technical background how would you describe it.

    -Where does it exist?
    -How does it work?
    -How does it securely process CC transactions?
    -Is it a piece of software or is it code?
    -How does it arrange the transaction information from the shopping cart?

    I would describe an API as the vocabulary with which you can interact with a program or service, the information which it expects, the form in which it expects it, and what you can expect to receive back from the program.

    Just a start ...
