Airtable API Rate Limit

Hey Guys,

I’m building a two sided marketplace on Softr and was comparing Airtable and Google Sheets as the database in the backend.

The main issue I see with Airtable is that the API rate limit is 5 per second and I can see that becoming an issue getting rate limited very very quickly.

With Google Sheets the issue is how you would be able to get users to upload images (5 per product) as the sheets don’t allow you to really store images similar to Airtable.

If anyone has any ideas on the Airtable API rate limit or ideas on how best to store images in a Google Sheet I would really appreciate the help.


I think these 5 API calls per second are also per IP address.
