Best Practices for Pagination and Requesting Data from Finding API

I'm building an app in JS/React and trying to theorize the best way to handle the data calls along with pagination on my front end. I understand the data limits and the pagination formats. Should I just be making a concurrent requests to the API if a user wants more than 100 records? OR is there a better way to just grab all of the data i need at once in on request?

You need to make separate API calls for more than 100 items in the Finding API. It's that simple. Be sure you also limit how much data your users need in a short time frame, so they don't cause you to make excessive API calls and end up abusing eBay's API platform.
