Daily quota is a personal protective mechanism, so that no unnecessary expense is generated, if your technical implementation is buggy. The maximum allowed daily quota can be changed under Quota settings.
As credits are only deducted after a job has finished, it is possible to effectively use more credits than the daily quota when you issue multiple bulk requests in parallel.
With completeness parameters that require us to do multiple page requests, the number of credits cannot be foreseen at the time of job creation, in this case, it is also possible to effectively use more credits than the daily quota.
We provide the daily quota to limit the potential harm that broken code could cause. Still, it is your responsibility to make sure, your access to the API is sound.
