Creation of a processing order application

Hi Everybody,
I'm Killian and this is my first post, hopefully I'm in the correct section!

I'm looking into creating an application to process e-commerce (dropshipping) orders.
On one side there is an existing e-commerce platform to build the e-com website and on the other, the website that actually sends the products, aliexpress (for a start).
The idea is to collect the data (final client name, adress, etc.) of the orders from the e-commerce platform and create automatically an order of the correct associated product in aliexpress.
This type of application already exists, the most known one is Oberlo (Shopify => Aliexpress).

I'm trying to figure out what technology I should use to do this ? Would I have to do everything from scratch or could some "parts" of the service be supplied by a third party (something like Zapier maybe).
I think what I need is an Web API ? Is that correct ? Should I look into that or is this something else ?
I don't know a lot technically but I learn fast and could hire a developer (but I'll see that later).

If anybody can help me thank a lot :)
Killian
