LITE API is a REST-inspired API designed to make API client developers write a lot less client-side code. It does so by a heavy use of finite state machines (called Wizards) that encapsulate a lot of business logic therefore eliminating a need for API clients to deal with intensive financial process details. It only uses two HTTP verbs GET and POST for all its methods. Wizard API methods have their own custom naming and custom error processing standards which developers need to learn before utilizing them. It uses simple Bearer Authentication.
