Amazon Data Extraction Engine
Each package is tailored to your needs.
You get full access to the process: sort, filter, make advanced scraping algorithm. All the data can be exported in any format you need or you can integrate it with a database.
Grab structured web data
You can easily extract Amazon quantity, price, description, images, title from Amazon directly. Offers page and Product page are parsed. You can set system to parse by certain seller or prime status and get most of the data from it.
Performance of mass data extraction
Sync is performed inside the parsing tool itself and product is triggered when data has changed, that gives a good performance boost. So you can monitor real-time data of change in price, stock count, availability, rating etc. Get the new data that updates consistently.
Overcome of anti-scraping technologies
The Data Extraction Engine can avoid websites's ban. It uses rotating proxies and captcha solvers to ensure web data access.
Easy to support
The tool which we have developed has the ability to make xml configuration instructions and may accommodate html structure changes quite fast. Rich xml configuration will make crawlers support easier.
It would allow you to build a proper workflow so you can manage the entire data retrieval process and to log and track any failures and be resilient to changes and updates.
There is a parsing function in the Amazon Magento Extension based on ApaiIO PHP library. With this HTML-parsing function you can easily extract Amazon stock, price, product features and customer reviews and import it to the Magento.
Demo doesn't use any HTML parsing features because we can't publish on our site data protected by copyright.
For testing this feature you can enable it in the settings
Parsing Amazon for data will help you for a lot of things:
Grab product details
Grab product details that you can’t get with the Product Advertising API. Import Amazon products to Magento with quantity, price, reviews, hi-res images and features.
Online Price Monitoring
Monitor real-time data of change in Price, Stock Count/Availability, Rating etc. Get the new data that updates consistently. Once product is downloaded to Magento, it's price, stocks, images, reviews, etc are automatically synced with Amazon.
Get Amazon Product Reviews
Get Reviews and post it on your eCommerce site. Import Amazon Customer Reviews to the Magento database. This would look like Magento native product reviews.
PHP library is a convenient way to automate the API request for information through the interface
There are a lot of Libraries based on several programming languiges. We can recommend Amazon Product Adverstising Library based on PHP REST and SOAP (only V1) using the Product Advertising API. ApaiIO is a highly flexible PHP library for fetching the Product Advertising API using REST or SOAP. You can implement your own request or response classes.
