Elastic Path Commerce Cloud rate limiter limits the number of requests received by the Elastic Path Commerce Cloud from a web browser or client. Each Elastic Path Commerce Cloud store has its own rate limit. The purpose of a rate limit is to ensure consistent performance and stability of the Elastic Path Commerce Cloud platform, and a quality experience for all of our customers.
By default, Elastic Path Commerce Cloud API enforces a rate limit of 100 requests per second for a production store and 25 requests per second for development stores. Higher rate limits may apply depending on your current plan. Stores that exceed the rate limits get error responses with a status code
429. For more information about error responses, see the Errors section.
The rate limit for your store depends on your current plan. In case of sudden rise in the number of rate-limited requests or to request to change the limit, contact Elastic Path Support. Elastic Path may reduce the limit to prevent abuse or increase the limit to enable high-traffic applications.
To increase the limit, you must contact Elastic Path Support a minimum of four weeks in advance before you need the changes to apply.
