Rate Limits on API Requests

TikTok API limits the number of requests you can send in a given timeframe. Limits for each API are set and enforced separately. Default limits are provided below.

API

Limit

/v2/user/info/

600

/v2/video/query/

600

/v2/video/list/

600

Request rate calculation is based on a one minute sliding window. If the number of requests exceeds the threshold, new requests will be throttled and a response will be returned with HTTP status 429 and error code rate_limit_exceeded.

If your application needs higher limits, please email us at tiktokplatform@tiktok.com with an explanation of why increased rates are required. We will review your request. If approved, rate limits will be increased.
