Hello

 

My bot is fetching prices for all its Items in Steam Inventory, which is very small at the moment. Is there any recommendation on how many queries (per second) can it do to get all prices?

As I recall, like 20 requests inside of 5 minutes or so will get you blocked. Using the endpoint to get a single price is really not a good way to go about doing things.

What does being blocked entail? And what's the best approach to get prices for whole Inventory?

Blocked = 429 for some period of time I don't know off-hand, probably at least 5 minutes.

 

Your best bet is to find some third-party pricing API.
