Data Scraping from E-Commerce Platform for Market Analytics


Im Vivek Ananth here, a representative from Wholesale China and I would like to enquire if you guys can develop an app to automatically run a specific web scraping script 2-3 times a day. The main purpose of web scraping is to analyse the current market and adjust our market price accordingly. Thus, we will need few informations to be scraped I.e Price, Total Number of Items Sold, and Monthly Sold Items. The workflow that we are expecting the employees here to follow is as follow :-

1. Employee looks for listings for similar products on the e-commerce platform that are priced competitively around our price. ( Around 5 listings )

2. Employee can copy the link of the ‘competitive listings’ into the app that we are looking to develop.

3. Employee repeats this process for all the products that are currently being sold by us

*** We would prefer that the employee can group similar products into corresponding categories for streamlined operation

4. The app will then be set to crawl the web daily at about 2 - 3 times to check to scrap for the set number of datas.

5. The information about all the listings that has had its price changed or if the number of sold items have increase, can then be displayed in the app or in txt format.

**** We will also need you to develop the web scraping script for us

Please revert to me with suggestions or if this is possible.

Thank you so much for your time and looking forward to working with you.
