    My API limit is reached??

    Asked by mrKlein on December 11, 2016 at 10:53 AM

    I have only been testing so far. whisch means designing and only filling in the form my self for maybe 10 times.

    I am not sure what my API-limit is and how to avoid reaching this limit.


    Glad to hear from you,

    Hey Richard, you reached your limit because you're using a lot of Ticket Purchases widgets on both of your forms.

    To better explain it, let's use that same widget as an example. The Ticket Purchases widget uses an API key to fetch information from your account to check the available quantities that were specified in it’s settings. In this case, it will use an API call for each time when it checks availability of the added products. So if you have twelve widgets on a form, each time the form is visited or loaded, it will trigger at least 12 API calls, depending on how are you using those widgets and how the widgets you are using are designed architecturally.

    Your current plan (Free Plan) can only support 1000 API calls daily. To learn more about this, I strongly urge you to read this guide: Daily-API-Call-Limits 

    Our systems automatically reset our users’ daily API call limits at midnight for the Eastern Standard Time (EST) zone.
