Hi, could someone please describe how the overage pricing for API requests works? For example the Essentials plan offers 1000x number of users API requests. If we exceeded this limit will we get a email? Will the product silently fail?
Thanks Alex. That page implies there are hidden rate limits in addition to the monthly limits advertised on the pricing page. From my reading of the article the second limit will effectively cause every request to fail.
If this is not the case could you please comment for our use case of 4 users. Will 2 API requests that fall in the same second with the Essentials plan fail?
4*1000/24/60/60 = .046
It sounds like the answer to my original question is that the requests will simply fail if our monthly rate limit is exceeded. Do you have any plans to make the more similar to the SMS limit where a fee is charged instead?
