📢 New Rate Limits

Over the years, our APIs have not had rate-limiting built into them. Most of the time, for most users of our API, this has been sufficient.

As Routable grows, we’ve seen heavier use of our APIs and we’d rather give clear signals to API users what the allowed rates are and when they are being rate-limited.

API requests are now limited to 600 requests per minute. If you hit that limit, you will receive responses with a 429 status code.

We’ve specifically chosen this limit to avoid impacting our existing customers and we do not expect there to be any immediate impact. Nevertheless, please update your integrations to be ready to handle 429 responses.

Please reach out to us at [email protected] if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback.
