Frequently Asked Questions

What are the API limits?

We ask that you only send one request at a time, then wait for the first to complete before completing the second. If you do hit our limits, we will return "HTTP/1.1 429 Too Many Requests" as an "X-RateLimit-Reset" header with UNIX timestamp of when the rate limit will be reset. Please also keep in mind that you can use the test environment to test your queries before executing them.

Can customers use payment profiles?

Yes, customers can use payment profiles in addition to account credit.

Do the domains from my live account copy over to the test account?

No, the accounts are completely separate and the domains from your live account will not be in your production account.
