If your scraper sends an overwhelming number of requests to the Walmart website within a specific time frame, you may trigger the 429 Too Many Requests error.
This is a result of Rate Limiting, a technique used by websites to prevent visitors from overloading their servers with frequent requests, ensuring stable and secure overall website performance.
The easiest way to solve the 429 error when scraping Walmart is to use a sizable pool of proxy servers and pick a different proxy for every request your scraper makes. As Walmart will see calls coming from different IP addresses, you will be able to avoid various detection methods without limiting the scale of your operations.
Although not the ideal solution as it may decrease your scraping scale, in most cases, an effective workaround is to:
Send less requests
Reduce the number of requests your scraper sends.
Pause the requests temporarily and retry the last one later.
Web browsers send a diverse range of HTTP headers; hence, if your scraper doesn’t, it stands out and is more easily detected. To bypass Walmart 429 error, you should:
Rotate sets of headers
Rotate a great deal of different HTTP header sets, or at the very least, sets of common headers.
Integrate HTTP cookie-handling techniques to further boost your scraper's anonymity.
Utilize a browser
Opt for a headless browser over manual header management for the best outcome.
