Key Features of Price2Spy Crawler

Some of the key technical strengths that distinguish Price2Spy Crawler from other similar tools:

  • Ability to crawl and extract data from very complex websites
    • having very complex page navigation structure
    • having complex JavaScript menu and/or paging implementation
    • having strong anti-bot protection (sites that do not want to be crawled) – for example, Amazon
    • capturing multiple product variations shown on the same product page
    • requiring browser interaction before scraping data
    • having huge amounts of products
  • Crawl size / location
    • we can crawl websites in any language / any country
    • crawling entire website / crawling only specific product categories/brands (for example – it does make much sense in crawling whole of Amazon. However, crawling several specific product categories on Amazon can be done)
    • crawling websites that are location-sensitive (showing different results depending on visitor’s IP / ZIP code). For example: Amazon will show different results if you’re an international vs US visitor
    • big (more than 1 000 000 product pages) or small (less than 1000 product pages) – can be done

Extraction Results

    • We have the ability to capture data fields which are not shown on product page itself (for example: fields shown on category page, shown before reaching the product page)
    • Extraction results can be delivered in a list (Excel, CSV, XML). If you need a custom format, do let us know
    • Extraction results can be ran against automated translation services (so you get results in your preferred language)
  • One-off or repetitive

    • Price2Spy’s Product Extraction service can be used as one-off data source, or as a repetitive process (in which case you will be able to determine delta’s)
      • New products – products which have been added to the website since the last crawl took place
      • Deleted products – products which have been removed from the website since the last crawl took place
    • If you go for a repetitive crawl / extraction, you will be able to determine the recrawl frequency
  • Product matching

    • Products that have been extracted can be matched (automatically or manually) to your own products
