Application programming interface.
An API is the means by which third parties allow their information and services to be accessed by your website. For example, UPS offers a shipping API which may allow your shopping cart to calculate how much it would cost to ship a pound of French Vanilla Coffee from one zip code to another. Facebook has an API that allows your customers to use your website to post to their Wall.

They can also allow you to move data into applications that are important to your business, such as SalesForce and Constant Contact.
