How do I subscribe to Renda?

  • As part of the registration process Renda microservices can be subscribed by providing payment card details. Providing card details is a mandatory. This protects the platform from being abused. With its generous free tier, Renda will not bill you for the first 500 API call each month.

  • Alternatively, Renda can also be subscribed from the developer user dashboard.

How do I Cancel Subscription?

Log into developer user dashboard, navigate to 'Manage Billing' section and simply cancel.

Rate Limits

Renda employs a number of safety guards against burst of incoming traffic to maximize the platform's stability. Users who perform multiple APIs requests in quick successions may see error responses that show up as HTTP status code 429. All requests are throttled using token bucket algorithm where a token counts for a request.

What is the current rate limit?

100 requests per second. If you need higher concurrency support, please raise a support ticket specifying a reason for the upgrade
