Everytime I make an API call, I get the error message "Your application has exceeded usage limit on this call, please make call to GetAPIAccessRules to check your call usage". What should I do?


As the error message suggests, make a call to GetAPIAccessRules and see if you have exceed the limit for your application.
If you have not yet completed the Compatible Application Check process, you can do the following:

If you have already completed the Compatible Application Check, contact Developer Support and we can help you optimize the calls in your application.

  Note.  Developer should not display this error to your end user.  However;  if an eBay user is experinecing the error when use an eBay app, here is what you can do:

  1. Check our system announcements board to see if there are any known issues or bugs that we're currently working on.

  2. If the issue isn't on the list, report the problem to us.
