Project Description

This is a very specific request, but I'm willing to pay for it.

The basic end goal is to have a PHP script that will fetch a list of data on all of the books sold by "Warehouse Inc." on The list can be seen here:

For each book, I will also need the price (by this user) and the ISBN number (or the link to the product page, which contains it anyhow).

If there is a way to scrape it manually, that's fine. However, Amazon seems to limit it to 170 pages (and I need all of them). There's a different screen that appears to show all of the products, but it isn't limited to books alone: [url removed, login to view];marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&sellerID=A2L77EE7U53NWQ.

My guess is that it would be easiest to do it through some kind of Amazon API, though I am too ignorant in this area to do it myself. If such API is easy, free, and public to sign up for, than this is certainly a possible option (and, at that point, probably the fastest and most efficient option).

So, as you can see, the goal is relatively simple and the options are many. If you really want my bid (and if this is actually quite easy, which is possible), a working example in your bid will pretty much seal the deal. If not, I'm willing to wait a few days.

Feel free to ask any questions if something isn't clear!

P.S. Please note the efficiency does count. For instance, scraping the entire list of the Warehouse's inventory (books and everything else) and merely ignoring non-books is just too inefficient for system resources and will not be accepted. If you have questions in this regard, please message me before being chosen. Thanks!
