Listings per page default pagination count

You can alter the number of listings displayed on your listing archive pages or search results by adjusting your WordPress Reading settings.

Visit Dashboard > Settings > Reading

This controls the default pagination for your shortcodes, search results and archive pages. Shortcodes have a limit option to adjust that number of a per shortcode basis. The setting above controls your overall default count.

You can also use hooks and filters to alter this with pre_get_posts.
