Is using Clover's Android SDK subjected to API rate limits?

Hello Team!


We notice invoking several methods of the SDK (https://clover.github.io/clover-android-sdk/) will immediately result in REST requests by the SDK to Clover's server. So our question is, are those subjected to the API rate limits?


Ex: we plan to log metered events when they happen in our Android app, and those events are quite often (almost the same frequency with taking payment event on terminal). Is that ok, or we must bundle those events, and log them only once a day/week or month)

(Just to be clearer in this example, we're referring to what Android AppsConnector.logMetered method as it's described at the top of this page: https://docs.clover.com/docs/billing-for-apps; And we're not using the REST API)


Thanks!


David

A better use of the API would be to keep track of the events for a given period (e.g. one day) and then make a single call with the total event count for that period.

Thanks for your response David. But still the question, is clover-android-sdk API subjected to the API rate limits?
