Project Description

I need a program that will allow me to search products on Amazon's website based on certain criteria.
I want to be able to conduct a series of different searches:
1. I want to search Amazon's website by category to find out what products they are not currently selling.
Example: 1. Search criteria is Appliances. Amazon seller is N which means I want the ones in Appliances that Amazon does not currently sell.
Results: Should come out in a spreadsheet format that tells me ASIN, UPC, Description, Current Rank (in Appliances no subcategories) if any, Lowest Price (among all sellers), Highest Price (among all sellers)

2. I want to search Amazon's website and find out how many sellers are selling certain products.
Example: 1. Search criteria is Appliances. Amazon seller is Y which means I want all items included in the Appliances category including the ones that Amazon does currently sell.
Results: Should come out in a spreadsheet format that tells me ASIN, UPC, Description, Current Rank (in Appliances no subcategories) if any, Lowest Price (among all sellers), Highest Price (among all sellers), Number of Sellers, Amazon seller (Y or N) this tells me which products in this category Amazon is a seller on.

3. I want to search Amazon's website and find out which products in certain categories have certain ranks.
Example: Search criteria is Appliances. Amazon seller is Y which means I want all of the items in this category includes Amazon and other sellers. Rank is <100,000, >50, etc. The Rank criteria can be simple as a greater than or less than but would be ideal if it could be a greater than or equal to x but less than or equal to y type of set up.
Results: Should come out in a spreadsheet format that tells me ASIN, UPC, Description, Current Rank (in Appliances no subcategories) if any, Lowest Price (among all sellers), Highest Price (among all sellers), Number of Sellers, Amazon seller (Y or N) this tells me which products in this category Amazon is a seller on.

Category: Based on main categories no sub categories
Description: The Exact title of the product
Current Rank: Based on main category not the subcategory
Price: Always include shipping cost
Number of Sellers: Total count of sellers selling this particular ASIN and Title on Amazon
ASIN: Amazon identifying listing number
UPC: product identifying number (included in results if given)

This is an idea of what I need. Please ask questions for verification if needed.
