What are the rate limits on Neynar APIs?

Rate limit thresholds and how they are enforced

Rate limits are set per subscription plan

  • Starter plan rate limits are 300 RPM or 5 RPS
  • Growth plan rate limits are 600 RPM or 10 RPS
  • Scale plan rate limits are 1200 RPM or 20 RPS

If you need higher limits, reach out and we can set up an enterprise plan for you.

API-specific rate limits in RPM

This type of rate limit is triggered when you call the same API above its API-specific threshold on your plan. As an example - On the Growth plan, you can call two different APIs at 500 RPM each for a total RPM of 1000 without triggering your rate limits.

Global rate limits in RPM

This type of rate limit is triggered when you call any API above the global threshold on your plan.

/validate, /signer and signer/developer_managed APIs don't count towards global rate limits.
