Rate limits are a collection of limits

A rate limit is a collection of limits. For example, 20 requests per second and 10,000 requests per fifteen minutes.

Toast APIs return header fields in response to each request that report on the specific limit within a rate limit that is the closest to being exceeded.

For more information, see Rate limiting header fields.
