Ecommerce portals are a goldmine of product related data. The product listings on Ecommerce sites are huge in number and new products get added every day. The data associated with product listings can be extracted for many use cases in the Ecommerce industry. If extracting product data such as product name, price, variant, ratings, reviews and seller details is your requirement, web scraping is the ideal solution to acquire this data.
How web scraping works
Web scraping is the process of programming web crawlers to crawl and extract data from websites. The first step in web scraping is the defining of sources where you figure out the sites you need data from. When it comes to Ecommerce sites, the product categories relevant to you or the whole site can be scraped depending on your specific requirement. The web crawlers can run on autopilot after the initial setup and you will keep receiving the data at predefined frequency.
