Dreamship API enforces rate limits on the amount of requests that can be made. There are two sets of rate limits that can get triggered, a burst rate limit that refreshes every minute, and a daily sustained limit that refreshes every day.


Time Period

Call Limit


1 Minute

60 Calls


1 Day

15,000 Calls

If you exceed either call limit within the time period above you will receive a 429 response with the return below.

    "error": {
        "key": "throttled",
        "status_code": 429,
        "message": "Request was throttled. Expected available in 59 seconds."

Please note, rate limits are subject to change in the future without an upgrade to the API version.
