Throttling after about 20 requests. Free API, PRO member.

posted this on January 25, 2013, 2:56 AM

We have been experiencing an issue with a free version due to the fact that it does not pass more than approximately 20 requests. It crashes every time after about 20 requests. We have tried placing 1 request per 10 and 15sec and have the same problem, even though the rate limit is 1 request every 5sec.

Hey Bookworm,

I just ran your API credentials through one of my scripts at 1 request per 5 seconds for 500 requests and everything looks good. I recommend double checking your code and to make sure you are setting proper rate limits. If you are still having trouble feel free to copy and paste some of your code here for the community to review.

Guys, if you need more details - please, ask. I am new to this forum and don't fully know how to formulate questions.
