Rate Limits

Rate limits define your allowance for the number of API requests in a given time period. Learn how to manage your rate limits on APILayer.

Unless otherwise stated, all APIs in the APILayer ecosystem have rate-limiting enabled.

The following headers are sent every time a request is made, showing you the number of requests left in your subscribed plan.

X-RateLimit-Limit-Day: 1000
X-RateLimit-Limit-Month: 30000
X-RateLimit-Remaining-Day: 997
X-RateLimit-Remaining-Month: 29873

If you require more/less requests, you can upgrade/downgrade your plan at any time from the "Subscriptions" page.

Once you reach the limit, the API server sends a response with HTTP code 429.

You can see the usage in the "API Detail" page as well.
