My Question or Issue

Hi there!

I am currently developing an app that needs to make extremely regular calls to the Get Playlist Item endpoint (https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/web-api/reference/playlists/get-playlists-tracks/)  in bulk – at a rate of approximately 800,000 to 1,000,000 requests per 24 hours.


As such, I'm currently being rate limited and receiving lots of 429 response back, throttling the service and massively slowing down the processing that my app is able to do. 


Would it please be possible to receive a rate limit?


Thank you,
