[API] What is expected response time of API calls

We deploy on world class cloud servers. (Amazon AWS). Our architecture involves running multiple instances for load balancing and reliability. Also we use latest architecture and tools to keep response time to minimal. Net response time depends upon your location. We have see response times in our testing from 25msecs to 200 msecs (1 msec = 1/1000 of second).

[Integration] Can I use AJAX to invoke APIs

Technically, answer is YES. As it is simple API endpoint, responding in JSON (or XML) data payload. To invoke any API, you need to have your user_key (your private key). Only caveat is, don't make AJAX call directly from public website to our API end point, as you will end up exposing your private api key to world. It's better to use provided plugin or SDK. Refer our integration guides & plugins page for more recipes
