Project Description

I believe php is probably the best option for this project.

Basically the program compares amazon and ebay prices for a certain item.

I need a program that will run a search on ebay for a certain term,
parse each result (Only up to items that are finishing in 2 days or less) for a certain number or name. Take this number or name and run a search on amazon.

The amazon searches will generally return only 1 result. I will then need the program to get the 3 lowest prices for the item (new or used).

That's basically it!

Now the reporting should look like this.

Title of item 1 -- Ebay Price -- Auction end time -- Amazon Lowest Price -- Amazon Second Lowest Price -- Amazon Third Lowest Price

Title of item 2 -- Ebay Price -- Auction end time -- Amazon Lowest Price -- Amazon Second Lowest Price -- Amazon Third Lowest Price

Title of item 3 -- Ebay Price -- Auction end time -- Amazon Lowest Price -- Amazon Second Lowest Price -- Amazon Third Lowest Price

.
.
.

Title of item N -- Ebay Price -- Auction end time -- Amazon Lowest Price -- Amazon Second Lowest Price -- Amazon Third Lowest Price



The ebay price and lowest amazon price should be hyperlinked to the item on amazon and ebay respectively.


If the ebay price is lower than the amazon price by a certain amount(This variable is inputted by user to program) the item like should be in green

If the ebay price is lower than the amazon price by a certain amount(This variable is inputted by user to program) the item like should be in Yellow.

The reporting should be excel like, with columns and what not, and allow me to sort by auction end time or group all the red lines together, or all the green lines together.


Input to program:
Ebay search term (ebay has a "Include title and description" check box which needs to be selected for the search)

Ebay category




Project should not be too hard, just a bunch of parsing.
Coding should be properly commented to allow me to make modifications easily.
