Rate Limits

Some (but not all) CoinJar Exchange API endpoints have rate limits. Generally, most API calls are rate limited to 600 requests every 10 minutes. For example, if you make 40 API calls between 12:40:00 and 12:41:00, you will only have 560 API calls left until the rate limit resets at 12:50:00.

API calls for order placements, order cancellation and market data are not rate limited. However, CoinJar reserves the right to restrict your API access if we determine (in our sole discretion) that your usage of non-rate-limited APIs is excessive compared to your settled trading activities.

Requests from all sources are counted towards the API rate limits per user, including API calls made on the CoinJar Exchange web interface. Therefore, if you develop and use multiple trading applications to access the same CoinJar Exchange account, you may need to consider the combined API call volume from all of these applications.
