I need a script written to automate pricing for tickets I sell on www.stubhub.com The script will need to determine the lowest ticket price on Stubhub for a particular event to which I have tickets for sale and if the event falls within parameters that I manually set, the script will need to change the price of my tickets to ensure that my tickets become the lowest priced tickets on StubHub. I’ll need to be able to customize the script so that I can set a bottom end price that my price won’t be set below. I’ll also need to be able to set the frequency with which the script checks each event (some events will need the price checked every few minutes, while others will not need to be checked more than once a day). In addition, if my tickets are the lowest price for an event, I’ll want the script to ensure that my tickets are no more than $.02 below the next lowest priced tickets on Stubhub. At any time I might have hundreds of tickets listed on StubHub, but only a couple of dozen listings will be ready to sell. I’ll need the script to ignore my listings that aren’t ready for sale and only change prices on listings for events that I have specified. It’s critical that the script is 100% reliable since any incorrect setting of pricing could cost me a great deal of money. Thank you.

Edit: I should have also mentioned that the events the script will check are general admission events. All tickets are the same, which should simplify the project.When you pull up an event, for example... http://www.stubhub.com/sam-smith-tickets/sam-smith-cambridge-the-sinclair-25-3-2014-4432343/ ...it will be easy to determine the lowest priced tickets and if my tickets are not the ones with the lowest price, the script would need to edit my prices via my Stubhub account. In addition, there are other sellers who use similar scripts and I wouldn't want to get in a spot where we are both constantly changing prices and end up with prices too far below market value, so I'll need to also be have the script do a count of how many tickets are within $5.00 of my price and if there aren't very many tickets priced that low, I'll need the option to set those tickets to a higher price until I decide I'm ready to sell.
