The default API rate limit is 60 requests per minute.

We may reduce limits to prevent abuse, or increase limits to enable high-traffic applications. To request an increased rate limit, please contact support.

Handling rate limts

A basic technique for integrations to gracefully handle limiting is to watch for 429 status codes and build in a retry mechanism. The retry mechanism should follow an exponential backoff schedule to reduce request volume when necessary.

Checking your rate limit

You can check your current rate limit in your dashboard under usage.

You might also want to check what your peak usage is for a given time period. You can do in the analytics page in your dashboard. Check the Peak RPM chart. This is useful to see if you are close to hitting your rate limit.
