Summary

There are no additional charges to use Chargebee's APIs, however, to ensure optimal app performance we regulate the API limits for TEST & LIVE sites as listed.


  • For TEST site the request limit is 150/minute for all request types, on exceeding the limit all request will be blocked.
    • The block will be removed automatically once they fall within limits.
  • For LIVE sites the request limit is 750/5minutes, on exceeding this limit
    • Your account will be flagged
    • You will be notified by email, (Owner, Admin & Emergency contact).
    • If we do not receive an acknowledgement all GET request will be blocked, POST requests will be accepted until we see fit.
    • Block will be removed after when requests are throttled with specified limits.


Do you have a scheduled activity and need a temporary API limit increase or looking to increase your default API limit, you can reach out to Chargebee support.
