Rate Limits


In some API endpoints, we apply rate limits. If an API endpoint is limited, the response header returns information about your rate limit balance.


If an API endpoint is limited in the header of the response shows your current rate limit status.

X-RateLimit-LimitThe number of requests you are allowed to make in the time period
X-RateLimit-RemainingThe number of requests remaining in the current time period
X-RateLimit-ResetThe time at which the current rate limit usage resets (Unix timestamp)

Limit Exceeded

If the limit is reached, an HTTP 429 Too Many Requests error response is returned. The response header will contain the limit information in this case too.
