API Call Rate Limit Wrongly Calculated URGENT!!!

Hello Ebay Developer Team, we trying to change our inventory handling from MIP 1.0 to Ebay Sell API. Now, we want to upload our inventory (about 70.000 listings) and we have the problem that after 10.000 listings it seems so that we reach the API call limit. But how can that be? I thought we have a limit by 2 Million API calls per day? It seems so we have the same issue like the user in this thread: https://forums.developer.ebay.com/questions/23208/severe-problem-rate-limit-wrongly-calculated.html Another problem is that we can't check our remaining quota because the call ` https://api.ebay.com/developer/analytics/v1_beta/rate_limit` always returns th e same result: { "apiContext" => "sell", "apiName" => "Inventory", "apiVersion" => "v1", "resources" => [ [0] { "name" => "sell.inventory", "rates" => [ [0] { "limit" => 2000000, "remaining" => 2000000, "reset" => "2018-09-21T07:00:00.000Z", "timeWindow" => 86400 } ] } ] } Why did the call always return the same value for the "remaining" hash? In the documentation for the API is the value described as followed: *remaining – The remaining number of requests the user or application can make to the associated resource before reaching the quota.* Can you help us to solve these problems because we loose a lot of money since three days because we can't manage our inventory?

It's embarrassing that no one from the ebay developers answers if users have such fundamental issues. One question: Why is the api call limit , which is officialy set to 2.000.000/day, internally limited by the trading api call limit from 5000/day? It makes no sense for me. We tried to delete 12.000 listings which we are created with the sell-inventory api. After 5000 inventory_item.delete calls, the api responded with api call-limit-reached exceptions. That means for us that for the rest of the day we aren't able to manage the 7.000 listing which means that we will get a lot of bad buys.
