API set up to push data to platform outside org

Hello. 

I've successfully set up a connected app to allow an external vendor to be able to receive/ pull data from my org by providing them the URL and token.

Conversely, if I want to be able to set up an API to push data to this platform, what would I do differently to accomplish this besides having the vendor set up a connection on their end? How would I get started/ proceed?

As per my understanding, you would need to authenticate user in salesforce to make any API call from external system using a connected app.

Check below reference that has more details.
