Project Description

I'm not sure what skills will be necessary to complete this project, as I'm unsure how it would be done. Please read this description carefully, and follow all instructions. Any bidders who do not follow the instructions will have their bids auto-rejected. Thank you.

I'm running a retail web store, and I would like to get a daily product listing from my wholesaler so I know which products have changed prices, been added, or removed. Their website is fairly complicated, and I've been told the database code changes? I wasn't sure what that meant. Please observer the website over a few days in order to make sure you can complete this project! You can place a bid immediately, but no project will be awarded until I've received a PM assuring me that you've observed the website, and understand EXACTLY how to get the information I require.

Website: [url removed, login to view] I can provide login information once the project is awarded.

I want to be able to click a button and get information on every product they have on their site - I need the URL of the product, the image, the price and quantity, the item number, and the name. I would like all this information to be sorted into categories like on the website. I want to be able to search this information by product name or product number.

I also want to be able to manage my product list from this program - after the first scan, I'll select the items I'm going to carry, and save them. I want to be able to add and remove products from this list at any time. I also want the list to be compared to the daily product gathering in the following ways:
Items that have been seen before, but that I did not add to my product list: grey
Items that have not been seen before: green + sign
Items that have changed price: Red up arrow if the price went up, green down arrow if the price went down
Items that have been added to the list, but that are no longer available: red X
Items that were previously added to the list, but are not currently on it: green checkmark

You MUST be able to demo a working prototype via live video feed before any funds will be released. Google Hangout's will work for this. Please submit a proposed program mockup along with your bid
