Data extraction is highly recommended for every e-commerce business to improve marketing and pricing strategies. This is the reason why the most common clients of Oxylabs are various e-commerce businesses. Usually, the main challenge for these companies is to oversee the whole data gathering process.

Finding solutions to reduce data acquisition costs

One of our clients needed to gather large quantities of pricing intelligence data from e-commerce websites. They already had an in-house web scraper. Its infrastructure was built upon residential proxies, so the whole web scraping process was familiar to this company. However, it was not enough to achieve their goals. This client noticed that the costs of data acquisition were too high. 

Most of their time and expenses went to maintenance, development, data parsing, and CAPTCHA solving. They contacted Oxylabs to find a solution on how to resolve these issues. We decided to offer our E-Commerce Scraper API because it’s our ultimate data-gathering tool, specially built to scrape heavy-duty data from e-commerce websites and search engines.
