Public API Rate Limits

Rate Limit

To ensure Thinkific remains stable and accessible to all sites, we limit the number of requests per minute that any one site can make to the Thinkific API. Consumers of the API should take steps to ensure they are using industry standard techniques to responsibly make requests to the API and to handle rate limiting retries properly.

Standard Rate Limit

API requests are limited at 120 requests per minute.

If you exceed this maximum amount, you will receive a 429 HTTP status.

The request will also include a header of "RateLimit-Reset: <epoch_time>" which will indicate the time when the rate limit will be reset and available for further requests.

Higher rates are available to Thinkific Plus Customers. Please contact us to learn more.
