What if I need to do lots of creating and updating?

Quite often, applications that you might believe would exceed the Xero API rate limits, can in fact work within the limits by analysing the structure of how you intend to use the Xero API

You can do more than one thing in a single request: For example, you can create more than one Invoice in a single PUT or POST Invoices API call. While there is no upper limit in the number of nodes that can be sent at one time, a ceiling of about 50 nodes per request is practical - this will ensure a request does not exceed the maximum size of 3.5MB. You should also review our notes on summarizing validation errors.
