Performance considerations

Paypal transaction API has some limits

  • start_date_min = 3 years, API call lists transaction for the previous three years.

  • start_date_max = 1.5 days, it takes a maximum of three hours for executed transactions to appear in the list transactions call. It is set to 1.5 days by default based on experience, otherwise API throw an error.

  • stream_slice_period = 1 day, the maximum supported date range is 31 days.

  • records_per_request = 10000, the maximum number of records in a single request.

  • page_size = 500, the maximum page size is 500.

  • requests_per_minute = 30, maximum limit is 50 requests per minute from IP address to all endpoint

Transactions sync is performed with default stream_slice_period = 1 day, it means that there will be 1 request for each day between start_date and now (or end_date). if start_date is greater then start_date_max. Balances sync is similarly performed with default stream_slice_period = 1 day, but it will do additional request for the end_date of the sync (now).
