Dropbox Invite limits Error

Explorer | Level 4

I have been a Business account member for over 6 months and have never seen this before. Some days i share a file to over 200-300 people with no issues, yet today i shared one file to 8 people then tried sharing another file to 30 people and It gives me this error. (You’ve hit the limit of invites you can send per day. Try again in 24 hours.) Now again i have a paid Business account. Anyone know what the issue is? Thanks

Hi there @jsand0101
 
In general, the error message “You've hit the limit of invites you can send per day. Try again in 24 hours”, occurs when you are attempting to share a link to a folder/file or share a folder, which indicates that you have sent too many invitations in one day.
 
This limit is reset every day, so you will be able to continue to send links to other users the next day.
 
If you continue to have trouble with this though, please don’t hesitate to contact our Support team for a more in-depth investigation. 
 
In any case, let me know how it goes!

Ok that is understandable but I have only sent 8 invites today and None for that folder. So this should not happen.

Eight invites today, but how many in the last 24 hours?

If it's anything like other limits that Dropbox has, it's possible that it's the number of invites in the previous 24-hour period. For example, bandwidth overages are measured on a 24-hour sliding window.

It is possible that some of those people you are sharing with are reporting you as being spam/unwanted (either intentionally or not). 

I'd suggest sending the links from your own email client instead of via Dropbox
