Rate Limits

Learn how Alloy Unified API offers higher than average rate limits.


By default, Alloy Unified API supports a rate limit of 150 requests per minute per connection. Note that this rate limit is connection based and not user based.

Our rate limit is substantially higher than if you were to build a direct integration.

How it works

Alloy Unified API maintains a real time cache of user data each time a connection is made. Learn more in this guide.

When a user initially connects to Alloy Unified API, we perform a one time historical sync to bring in all relevant data. Afterwards, we register all relevant webhooks and set up recurring polling jobs to cache data changes in real time.

This technology ensures the Unified API Cache is always up to date with your user's data. Because of this, we are able to offer blazing fast API calls that aren't limited by traditional Third Party App rate limits.
