I'm doing some testing on a dev store and I'm somehow hitting the Shopify admin API rate limit - the API responds with a 429: "Exceeded API rate limit, please try again in a minute. Upgrade to a paid account to remove this limit."
The docs ( https://shopify.dev/concepts/about-apis/rate-limits ) indicate a default bucket of 40 requests with leak rate of 2/sec. The value of "X-Shopify-Shop-Api-Call-Limit" in the response header never goes over 6/40 but I still get 429 errors.
Is there a more restrictive admin API rate limit for partner account dev stores? If so, what is that limit?
Solved! Go to the solution
This is an accepted solution.
Certain endpoints have additional limits when using a development store, those limits are listed on the API reference doc page for each endpoint.
