Configurable rate limits for Recharge API tokens!
Merchants using the Recharge API can now have access to configurable rate limits through their API tokens. This update represents significant efficiency gains within our API and with these configurable rate limits, merchants can scale rapidly and implement innovative promotions reliably.
- New API tokens for merchants on the PRO or ENTERPRISE plan now default to 2X the existing call volumes.
- Even higher rate limits are available upon request for merchants who use the Recharge API heavily.
These new rate limits can be several times the existing rate limits and enabling them would require the generation of a new API token from the Integrations page. Once created, these new API Tokens will include a prefix, as shown below:
- ‘sk’ indicates that this is a secret key that must remain confidential and not shared publicly in any way
- Example: 2x1 - this is the rate limit multiplier with 2X the current leak rate (standard is 2 requests/sec) and 1X the bucket size (standard bucket size of 40 requests).
If a store is at the maximum token limit, an existing token should be replaced with a new API token that supports the higher rate limits.
