Increase rate limit for API?

Is there a rate limit for posting to the API?

I have set up my site to grant badges to users on the forum based on stuff they achieve on my main site, and I am doing bulk API calls to add in the historical ones now as it’s a new feature.

However when I set it off, it may add 30 or more badges for a user, and it only does some of those then I need to trigger it again to get the rest.

There seems to be a rate limit?

Can I increase this limit somewhere? Maybe just for calls from my website?

Maybe have a look at this topic:

So if you’re on a hosted plan somewhere you’ll just need to add a one-second delay between your calls to stay under the limit:
