GraphQL Limit for Shopify Plus

New Member

Does anyone run into request limits for the GraphQL Storefront API? 

We have a few high traffic stores and we are afraid of hitting a request ceiling. 

I reached out to support and they said that you can request a higher limit through our shopify merchant but this was not documented and pretty vague on what that means for business costs and development specs.

If you are also running into this same requirement issue then comment below and the Shopify Development team will hopefully pay attention and accommodate larger implementations.

Hey @chandler88 


Would love to know in what scenario are you hitting the limits and some examples. The rate limits for the Storefront API are designed to handle large amounts of traffic as they are per buyer IP vs. the app IP. Are you utilizing the API client side as expected?
