What can I do for you?
I am a developer who specializes in 3 main areas:
Pricing information/Price comparison
I have written many programs in this area. I have listed some below with the most popular ones first.
PriceCheck for Amazon MWS and PA API - See more details about MWS API, Product Advertising API, sample input and output files demonstrating how to automate the process of obtaining Amazon pricing informaiton like Sales Rank, Buy Box price, Buy Box owner, FBA fees, profit and ROI calculations, etc.
ebay - Research your competitors on ebay. Find out what they are selling and what prices they are getting for their items. Get detailed information about their listings including the Item Specifics section and the Watching count.
Walmart, Best Buy, etc. - Many other sites have APIs which can be used to look up their pricing and added to the results from the PriceCheck for Amazon program.
and more - many more (retail) sites list pricing information, but do not have APIs. However, a scraper can be developed to look up their pricing and add it to the results from the PriceCheck for Amazon program.
Scrapers, Webcrawlers, Spiders, Bots
Do you want to collect data from another site?
Are you doing the same thing over and over?
Whether you want to collect data from another site, or automate a routine task, scrapers and bots can help you immensely. I believe in writing ethical, responsible scrapers and bots that don't harm other sites.
Jungle Scout Estimated Sales - See more details. Do you love the estimated sales data from Jungle Scout, but hate looking it up one by one? Then this scraper is for you. Simply create an input file of the data you want to look up and let the scraper do all the work for you. Quick and easy. What could take days/weeks to do, is done in minutes/hours.
Zillow For Sale By Owner (FSBO) - See more details. You are a realtor and you want to collect the addresses of all of the For Sale By Owner listings in your area on Zillow.com so you can send them a mailing introducing yourself and your services. This could take days or even weeks to do manually. With a simple scraper, the entire process can be automated. Just start the scraper and let it run while you go do something else. Come back in an hour or two and you have all the data you need for a mailing. Load it into a word processing program, print it out, and send it off. Fast and efficient.
