Rate Limiting

In order to ensure the quality of service to all VGS customers and help prevent runaway scripts from depleting customer quotas we have rate limiting in our both sandbox and live environment.


Limits are set depending on the service type (Inbound/Outbound) and the environment type (Sandbox/Live).

Inbound traffic

Inbound traffic is limited by unique IP, per vault.

  • Sandbox - 200 rpm
  • Live - 5,000 rpm

Outbound traffic

Outbound traffic is limited per pair of URL access credentials (username and password), per vault.

  • Sandbox - 200 rpm
  • Live - 5,000 rpm


If you've reached your limit, all following requests will be interrupted with status code 429 and will be reset after a minute.


If you have any questions, comments or need to increase your limit, please contact us at support@verygoodsecurity.com
