Rate limits

The number of call to the PayFit partner API is limited per client application (and not by valid access_token).

The default rate limit is 20 requests per second

If any of the limits configured is being reached, the API will return a 429 status code with the following JSON body:

{ "message": "API rate limit exceeded" }

Don't worry, we will send some additional headers back to you telling what are the limits allowed and how many requests are available:

X-RateLimit-Remaining-Second: 4

We will also send headers telling the limits in the time frame and the number of requests remaining:

💡 We strongly suggest that you handle this error and add a "wait and retry" mechanism.
