Project Description

I need a tool that can access active and sold listing data from StubHub for any event of my choosing as well as adjust my listing prices.

The information would need to be scraped on a periodic and immediate basis of my choosing to capture new events and sales. Scraping would be deeply involved, including clicking through a number of screens in order to get to an event, inputting dummy selling information, view active and sold tickets for the event, and recording this information into an excel file.

For example, if I said I want to pull information from the New Jersey Nets at Los Angeles Clippers Tickets the tool would need to:

Go to Main Selling Landing Page ([url removed, login to view]) >> Start Selling >> Basketball Tickets >> NBA Tickets >> 2013 – 2014 Regular Season Tickets >> Los Angeles Clippers Tickets >> Check box in Los Angeles Lakers at Los Angeles Clippers >> Continue >> select I’ll deliver these tickets electronically >> Select Yes >> choose General Admission' is printed on the tickets >> enter “2” in the quantity box >> choose continue >> and then extract the information from the Sold and Unsold tabs for each of the zones in the section box.

You can see that whenever you click on each section, it shows line item entry for each sale. I want a tool that can pull all of the sales data from the Stubhub server so i can analyze in excel. The excel spit out should look like this (as an example for a sporting event).

Zone Section Row Qty Price Sale Date

Mid Level 206 4 4 $[url removed, login to view] 02/11/14

Mid Level 204 4 4 $[url removed, login to view] 02/11/14

Upper Level 321 4 4 $[url removed, login to view] 02/11/14

Sometimes the Zone and Section and Row will be letters, sometimes number. For example, some events will be GA for Zone, Section, and Row.

For each event, there can be any number of items ranging from 0 - 5000 line items.

But sometimes, StubHub will only display the last 100 sales, so it would have to detect new ones and add them, not replace old ones.

Additionally, the tool would need to be able to check my listings on StubHub on a set time period per event and automatically adjust my listing to be the lowest priced (up to a bottom price that I can specify).
