Updated on:

When working with the ChatGPT or OpenAI API, you may encounter the message “Too many requests in 1 hour Try again later.” This error occurs when the API has received too many requests from your IP or API key within a one-hour period. But don’t worry! This issue can be easily resolved with a few simple steps. Whether you’re a developer, marketer, or data analyst, this guide will show you how to fix the “Too many requests” error and get back to using the OpenAI API in no time.

How to fix “Too many requests in 1 hour Try again later”?

This message typically occurs when you have exceeded the number of requests allowed within a certain timeframe (usually 1 hour) when using the OpenAI API. To fix this, you will need to wait for the specified time period to pass before making more requests.

You can also try reducing the number of requests you make in a given period of time to avoid hitting the limit again in the future. Additionally, you can upgrade your API key to a higher tier which will allow more requests per hour.

It’s also worth checking that you’re not making too many requests by mistake. For example, if you’re running a script that is making too many requests in a short period of time, you may need to adjust the script or rate limit the requests.

Finally, ensure that you are using the correct API key, if you’re using the wrong one, you will not be able to make requests.
