# Pagination

Sometimes there will be more results than the resource returns. The API enforces limitations to achieve high performance and encourages you to incorporate reasonable pagination.

This is achieved by using three props that are returned in tandem with the collection and setting the query parameters accordingly.

Name Description
limit The maximum number of items to include
offset The offset on the collection
total The total items in the collection

For example, for a collection with a total of 45 results, and each page containing 20 items the parameters for each page would be as follows:

Page Parameter Values
1 limit: 20, offset: 0
2 limit: 20, offset: 20
3 limit: 20, offset: 40
