Rate limit

Started by Jake He -   in API Endpoints


I understand there is a rate limit of 60 calls per minute. After my rate limit is reached I have waited for over 10 minutes but the rate limit is still applied. Why is that? How long do I need to wait until the rate-limit is over?

My app id is ff0dca2f-cf57-493d-9007-251b0f5bc26c

I have exceeded the daily rate limit

Hello Jake! Please note that if you encounter minute limit and you continue to make requests, api will increase your limitation. Probably you increased limit time to more than 10 mins. Best practice here is to queue your requests if possible and wait few seconds to make another request.
