Extracting product data from Amazon is usually done by employing bots to visit and extract data from different web pages under specific categories automatically. Data extraction from Amazon requires you to define the data points required and the category of products. While crawling product pages on Amazon, the commonly extracted data points are product title, price, seller name, variant, reviews, rating, etc.
The next step in the process is building a web crawler program to extract the data. Setting up the crawler is a technically demanding task and requires skilled labor for which you can depend on a web scraping service provider like PromptCloud. We take care of the technical aspects, leaving you to attend to your business.
The frequency of Amazon crawls can be defined at the time of crawler setup which will decide how often you get the data. The product data crawled from Amazon can be delivered in JSON, CSV or XML formats. The delivery methods are customizable too. The choices range from PromptCloud API, Amazon S3, Dropbox or your own FTP server.
