How difficult is it to implement a wholesalers product api into a WordPress site?

I have next to 0 experience in WordPress but told a friend I’d help him with his site because I’m pretty tech-savvy.

He has been given a product API from a wholesaler who’s products he wants to display on his site.

This might be too vague a question but is this difficult to do? Is there coding required? Would I be better off getting the csv files and importing it into woocommerce? Any plugins that make APIs easier to implement.

What I’m really trying to figure out is whether I should tell my friend to get someone more experiences to sort this or is it worth me giving it a go.

I have some experience with html/css/php if it helps.
