Batch API calls from external website

We have an external website that is integrated with Salesforce via REST APi.  On the website, when a user registers, a contact record is created and also a welcome email is sent right away.  Users also make purchases on the website which are recorded in Salesforce in real-time as well.  We do expect heavy traffic when we launch and we are worried about the API limit.  I read about Bulk API but it doesn’t seem to be applicable to our scenario since we are dealing with real-time transactions.  Maybe I am misunderstanding the bulk Api concept but if anyone could guide us on what we could do to batch real-time calls, I would greatly appreciate it.  Our website is built on Node JS with a vue.js frontend.
