Etsy 429 Error

Etsy 429 Error — Meaning & Fix

Running into the Esty 429 error can happen to the best of us. It’s a common scraping issue that occurs when you’ve sent too many requests to the site. Find helpful suggestions below or check out our fast-track solution — Etsy Scraper API.

Causes of Etsy 429 error

Etsy will issue the 429 Too Many Requests error if a user passes too many requests over a short period of time. Websites often impose rate limits to ensure their resources are not overburdened or prevent security breaches such as brute-force login attempts.


How to fix Etsy 429 error

Use proxies

One of the most effective and best-known ways to prevent the 429 status code is to distribute your requests among different IPs. To do that, you can implement rotating proxies. Each proxy server will have a different IP, and you'll ensure that Etsy perceives each request as originating from a different user.

Simulate human-like browsing

Suspicious HTTP headers can often give away whether a user is organic or not. To simulate human-like traffic and ensure Etsy sees you as an organic visitor, rotate your headers frequently.

Throttle your scraper

You can try throttling your scraping tool to implement a reasonable scraping frequency and avoid the Etsy 429 error. This will also ensure you don’t violate the website’s rules or overburden its resources.
