I’m no programmer (this is a project I would have outsourced for me) so I’m not sure of the feasibility of this project.
I want a program that will check the prices of my top 10 competitors for particular items. Right now, we do this manually for a few products and it’s painstaking.
Would it be possible to do this automatically, even though none of the competition’s websites offer APIs? For example, I want to retrieve the prices for all sizes of the anchors on this page: http://www.go2marine.com/product.do?no=87987F.
All of the products are displayed in a table, with a column named “Price” so I’m wondering if it would be simple enough just to find this table, and extrapolate the price accordingly?
Thanks in advance!
