Hey folks, anyone have any ideas about scraping one auction site for price checks and a 2nd or 3rd site for completed auctions to look for good deals on gear? EG. shopgoodwill has an auction site that has ridiculously low rpices. Ebay sold items can indicate how much profit could be gained by bying good deals. How do I scrape one site and gather sold data on the other?
This would be for a personal passion....my boyfriend is currently recovering from a major medical illness and one of his favorite things to do is "window shop" on the goodwill site. I think it'd be great if he could buy from them and sell on ebay. he's putting tim einto the research anyway, Seems like writing a script to help him out would be "fun and easy".
