Project Description

I need someone to extract some information (retail price, discount in percent, discount amount) from about 322,000 descriptions of products. For a part of the descriptions there is no information, for others only a part of it. The data can be provided in a csv or xls sheet (about 300MB). Please have a look at the examples!

Example 1:

"GET PETGUARD - ULTRA EARLY BIRD Get the best deal and help us kickstart Petguard! You'll receive one Sentinel and one Pet Tag - and you'll save $60 off the $179 retail price!"

Extracted information in new columns:

retail_price: 179

discount_amount: 60

discount_percent: (empty)

Example 1:


1 Blubel package in classic charcoal at over 23% discount to the retail price (saving of £15)"

Extracted information in new columns:

retail_price: (empty)

discount_amount: 15

discount_percent: 23
