Are there any data limits for a single application or a developer?

Currently there are no limits, however, we track traffic associated with an individual API key.

How come I’m getting “error”: “Unauthorized” when I make a call to the API?

General

Did something change? My app is not working.

The ITA API is constantly evolving and we will continually make updates. If you have specific questions please email our Data Services address or post an issue on our GitHub account.

What sort of load are ITA’s servers able to handle?

ITA uses cloud computing, so there is no impact on ITA’s infrastructure.

How real-time is “real-time”? Is the data updated continuously or is there some sort of delay?

It will vary based on the type of information requested and the system that it is drawn from. Our goal is to provide the data as close to “real-time” as possible. The documentation for each API specifies how often we update the data.

What sort of applications does ITA expect/hope developers will make?

We get excited for unique and creative applications that provide benefit to businesses that export their products and services overseas. Applications that share ITA’s resources with a wide audience are particularly desirable. Visit our Apps Gallery page for ideas.

Why does ITA offer this data?

ITA would like to share its valuable resources (data, content, information) with as many businesses as possible. Our mission is to assist American businesses in planning their international sales strategies and succeed in today’s global marketplace. By sharing ITA’s resources, your applications help us help them!
