Datafeed alternative

    Hi. I have a site that runs on datafeeds. Two of my merchants no longer provide a datafeed, and of course they were my main merchants!! Is there any way I can create a datafeed? Perhaps by scraping (of which I know nothing about!)

    You can create scrapper which will scrap data from merchant and give you data on your format. You can import that database.

    Thanks, but as I mentioned, I know nothing about scraping and not a clue where to start!

    There are lots of tutorials about how to do this - but be mindful of restrictions about the use and you could find yourself blocked or sued.

    Before you try scraping see if the sites have public rss feeds.

    Hire freelancer to make a scraper for you. Post your thread on service section.
