Rate Limits

Sapling's API is rate-limited based on the subscription of the API key holder.

  • For free trials, the limit is 50,000 characters every 24 hours and 250,000 characters/month.
  • For subscribed users, this limit is currently 10 million characters every 24 hours and 25 million characters/month.
  • Each of these limits can be raised – contact us.

The rate limit terms of request frequency varies by endpoint. For most endpoints, the limit is 120,000 characters every 2 minutes. The edits and postprocess endpoints are limited at 240,000 characters every 2 minutes.

If you ever encounter rate limit errors when using Sapling (usually indicated by status code 429) contact and we'll see if we can help.
