Increasing Drip Rate
We are integrating website with the Lightspeed Retail API and dealing with API limitations. Here are some entities we want to synchronise between our website and Lightspeed:
- Gift cards
- Inventory levels
Taking into account Bucket size and Drip Rate looks like we can do no more than 6 POST requests per minute to the Lightspeed API.
We are seeing this as an issue as in busy hours there can be definitely more than 6 orders per minute placed. Also, it's crucial for us to synchronise inventory levels between the website and POS and we want to do this at least every 5 seconds.
How can we increase the drip rate or a bucket size to mitigate potential problems mentioned above?
