Api call limit, per store or per app?

Hi Guys,

This might be a silly question. But is the api call limit per app or per store:

https://docs.shopify.com/api/introduction/api-call-limit

Per store I mean the same app making calls to the same store.

From the documentation I would assume that it is per app but just wanted to double check before I go and change our algorithms,

which are assuming a limit per store :-).

It's per app.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for comfirming this! I believe this makes things really complicated for batch processing of different stores. But anyway, hopefully Shopify will do something about it, as they have claimed several times already.

Actually looking at the Shopify documentation here:

https://docs.shopify.com/api/introduction/api-call-limit#over-api-limit

It says:

HTTP_X_SHOPIFY_SHOP_API_CALL_LIMIT (lists how many calls you've made for that particular shop)

So it seems to be actually per shop not per app. Any advice?

Thanks
