I ran across this job posting, and need the same type of work completed for my website. Read over this and see if something you can help me with.
I'm looking for a professional programmer with experience in website scraping.
I need to have a script build, which can automatically scrape a website for products, on a daily/weekly basis and then automatically insert all the products in to my Wordpress Woocommerce website.
My site is [url removed, login to view] and the website to scrape is [url removed, login to view]
Don't worry, this is a friend's website, and he is perfectly aware that I will be scraping it.
I basically need all of this products placed on my site. I need everything matching that he has on my site.
Here are a few things that I can think of that I need for sure. I need the following information to be scraped:
- Product Title
- Product Description
- Product Images
- SKU number
- Sales Price (USD)
Currently there are no products in my store, so we will have a clean start.
I need the product description to be scraped in plain text, so any links to the original site should not be clickable.
I need the (Sales Price) scraped. I also need the (MSRP price) scraped.
The quantity is not shown on the product page, but a warning message appears when the product is out of stock. So I need a function, which picks up this warning message and then automatically change the product quantity on my site to "0" (Out of stock)
Maybe there is an easier way to locate out of stock products and I'm open to suggestions.
My categories will be the same exact setup as the original site. For example, I want products scraped from the (Accessories) category to be placed in the (Accessories) category on my site.
If you think this is something you can help me with I would appreciate your feedback.
