Project Description:
Looking for someone who can write a program using Ebay's API to collect final auction prices of video games from Ebay's completed listings. I have a 1000 products that I want to collect accurate final selling prices that sold on ebay each time I run the program.

I want this program to tell me what the x highest price each product sold for and the x lowest price each product successfully sold for. (For example the 5th highest price and the 5th lowest price for each of the 1000 items. I would prefer "x" to be user definable). I would also prefer the listings without a winning bidder NOT included. I want this done for both conditions, "new" and "used", giving a total of 4 prices for each of the 1000 products.

This is for personal use, and the results can be output in whatever way you prefer. However, I need to be able to (manually) easily put the data into an excel spreadsheet. In a nutshell I want a program that will give me an output like this:

Tron Evolution (or UPC code) - $40,$30,$30,$25 .

I have UPC codes for all products if that make things easier. If you have questions about details, ask and I will add them to this summary. I am wililng to spend more on the budget. Thanks.

Just to clarify...I have no listings on ebay. I want to grab all completed listings from ebay for a certain title and then only output the 5th highest/5th lowest,etc. This will give me a good idea of the high and low price range which I will use for my spreadsheet. Thanks.

Just want to add ... if there is another way of getting this data other then the ebay api, that is fine. All of this information is available when you browse through Ebay's search function under completed listings. This is the way I get the information now ... however, it takes hours to collect all the data manually and would prefer to have it performed automatically. Thanks.

Web scraping looks to be a better approach to getting all the completed listings for each of my products. I have learned that using the ebay API is not going to get the results I am looking for. Grabbing all the completed listings (price, condition, etc) for each product and putting them in an excel format looks to be the best solution. Thanks.
