Rate Limiting and Terms of Service


**Rate Limiting** Being a good citizen in the Reverb API ecosystem is important. We ask that all our integrators take precautions to avoid flooding Reverb with too many requests. If Reverb detects a large volume of requests from a particular application, we may issue a Rate Limit response which will consist of a HTTP status code of 429. More information on the exact response is coming soon. Applications that have higher rate limit requirements may ask for a rate limit increase. To do so, please make sure you [register your application](http://dash.readme.io/project/reverb/v1.0/docs/application-only-authorization-client-credentials-flow) and [Contact Support](https://dev.reverb.com/discuss). **Terms of Service** If your integration consumes Reverb data, you are required to link back to the original Reverb listings, price guides, and other content whenever possible. For example, if you are building a website that exposes a Reverb listing with your own styling, there should be a "View on Reverb" link that links back to the listing. Failure to link back to the listing could constitute a violation of these terms of service and may result in the termination of your API access.
