How Do I Reset a Compromised API Key?

To reset your API key, you will need to delete the application associated with compromised API Key. To do this, head over to your developer dashboard. On the left-hand side, select the ‘My Apps’ button. From there, select the pencil for the Application/API key you would like reset and press the ‘Delete’ button when it appears. After deleting the application, you can add a new application to generate a new app/API key for your account.

How to Change My Credit Card?

There are many reasons why you might want to change your credit card on RapidAPI. To do this, you can go to your billing dashboard. There you will find your current credit card information as well as a way to edit or delete your credit card.

Deleting Your Credit Card

In order to delete your credit card, you must first unsubscribe from all the APIs your account was using.

What If My Credit Card Is Declined?

Sometimes depending on the bank’s fraud protection settings, a bank will decline the validation charge we make when we attempt to be sure a card is valid. We recommend first contacting your bank to see if they are blocking our charges. For more help around this issue, please contact support-rakuten-rapidapi@mail.rakuten.com and our team will investigate further.

Does an API have _______ Functionality?

With so many APIs available on RapidAPI, created by thousands of different API providers, there is a lot of different API functionality you can find. The two biggest recommendations we have for seeing what data and functionality an API has:

  1. Contact the API Provider to ask them directly. API providers are the best resource of knowledge for their API, so you can contact them through the ‘Discussions’ tab of the API.

  2. Test out the API yourself before subscribing to a paid plan. Many APIs will have a free BASIC plan associated with their API. What these free plans allow is for you to make a few calls to see exactly what data and functionality an API provides before committing to a paid pricing plan.

What Should I Do If I’ve Found an API That Is Fraudulent or Falsely Advertising What It Provides?

Our entire team wants to ensure you have the best experience possible while using RapidAPI. Unfortunately, there can be times when an API provider has listed an API that does not provide the functionality advertised. If you see different results or data than what the API is advertising, please contact support-rakuten-rapidapi@mail.rakuten.com.

When Does the Daily Pricing Quota Window Reset?

Rakuten RapidAPI provides a lot of customization for how API providers set up their pricing, one of these options is the ability to set a daily quota limit. The daily quota period starts at your time of subscription and ends 24 hours from that time. For instance, if you subscribed to an API at 11:30:15 UTC on June 2, your daily quota will reset at 11:30:15 each day.

Where can I find the exact subscription start time?

By going to your billing dashboard, then transaction history, you’ll see a list of your invoices. Opening one of your invoices will show the exact time of subscription.
