Hi team , 

We have a app in which we allow shopify users to add their stores and use their api to get orders.

Now i have a question that if we have 50 more clients for shopify then will this increase throttling ?

And if yes , what is the solution for this.

Hi @sc-uat-thor ,

 

If you are using the Shopify Admin API (either in REST or GraphQL), the number of merchants who use your app onto their store does not change or increase your API Rate Limit at all. Your API Rate Limits will be set to the values discussed in this document: https://shopify.dev/concepts/about-apis/rate-limits

Hi,

 

The document mentions for rest API the ratelimit values are per app per store. But it does not mention clearly about graphql ratelimits. Is it same there also like per store per app?

 

Thanks,

Sourav

Hey @souravchandra,

 

That doc lists the rate limits for both REST and GraphQL. The limits themselves are different, but they work the same way (per shop, per app).
