Rate Limiting

Rate limiting enables Buckaroo to share access bandwidth to its resources equally across all merchants.

Rate limiting is applied on IP basis. The threshold is set to 400 requests per 5 seconds. This averages to 80 API calls per second for more than 5 consecutive seconds.

If you plan to create transactions in bulk, use our Batch API instead. The Batch API is built specifically for this purpose.

Note: When the API returns status code 429 - Too Many Requests, you have exceeded the threshold.
