Commerce API Rate Limiting

The Coinbase Commerce API is rate limited to prevent abuse that would degrade our ability to maintain consistent API performance for all users.

By default, every user is rate limited at 25 requests per minute on the charge creation endpoint and 200 requests per minute for all other endpoints. If your requests are being rate limited, HTTP response code 429 is returned with an rate_limit_exceeded error.

Rate limiting error (429)

"error": {
"type": "rate_limit_exceeded",
"message": "Rate limit exceeded"
