We use Rate Limiting to control and allow a better flow of the amount of incoming and outgoing traffic, manage network overload errors, and increase security by mitigating attacks such as DDoS.
We currently allow up to 120 operations per minute, per account ( for both read or write operations). In the event that you exceed this limit, you will receive a 429 HTTP status code: Too Many Requests.
In order to handle this limit gracefully, we suggest that you listen for this specific status code and implement a retry mechanism with exponential backoff (i.e. periodically retrying a failed request with increasing delays between requests) to ensure that you do not generate excessive load on our APIs.
