Amazon product scraping

In the current article, I’d like to share my experience with Amazon products scraping. The well-known Amazon marketplace offers the best deals for thousands of product types and from thousands of sellers. The potential amount of data to scrape is quite insane and can be used for:

  • Market price comparison
  • Price change tracking
  • Analyzing product reviews
  • Copyright check
  • Finding the best products for selling or dropshipping
  • A lot of data science and machine learning stuff

What is web scraping?

Web Scraping, also known as web data extraction, is the process of retrieving or “scraping” data from a website. Data displayed by most websites can only be viewed using a web browser. Most websites do not provide the option to save the data which they display to your local storage, or to your own website. This is where a Web Scraping software like ScrapingAnt comes in handy.
