Rate Limiting

Routable limits how many API calls you can send per second.

The Routable API employs rate limiting against bursts of incoming traffic to help maximize its stability. Customers who send too many requests in quick succession may see 429 Too Many Requests errors returned.

  • For most endpoints, Routable allows 600 requests per minute.
  • For endpoints that perform a great deal of work, such as our Create a Payable endpoint, Routable allows 100 requests per minute.


We may reduce limits to prevent abuse, or increase limits to enable high-traffic applications. Sandbox accounts may have reduced rate limits compared to our production environment. To request an increased rate limit, please contact Routable's Developer Experience team.
