Project Description

We need a web scraper that will scrape data from our parent company e-commerce web site, and uploading/updating data in our wordpress database.

There are a few specifications necessary for the scraper:

1) It must run and flag any removed products (set as a database field). The site admins will then deal with them.
2) It must update any changed products on the wordpress site, that may have been updated on the parent company site.
3) It must give a report afterwards that indicates the total number of products scraped, how many were added, updated and deleted.

The final web scraper will be used continuously (~twice a month), so should be able to be setup to run as a cron job.
