Amazon Product Offers and Sellers Scraper in Python/JavaScript

In this section, we will guide you on how to scrape Amazon product offers and sellers using either Python or JavaScript. We will utilize the browser automation framework called Playwright to emulate browser behavior in our code.

One of the key advantages of this approach is its ability to bypass common blocks often put in place to prevent scraping. However, familiarity with the Playwright API is necessary to use it effectively.

You could also use Python Requests, LXML, or Beautiful Soup to build an Amazon seller a and product scraper without using a browser or a browser automation library. But bypassing the anti scraping mechanisms put in place can be challenging and is beyond the scope of this article.

Here are the steps to scrape Amazon product offers data using Playwright:

Step 1: Choose either Python or JavaScript as your programming language.
Step 2: Install Playwright for your preferred language:

Step 3: Write your code to emulate browser behavior and extract the desired data from Amazon using the Playwright API. You can use the code provided below:

This code shows how to scrape Amazon Product Offers and Sellers using the Playwright library in Python and JavaScript.
The corresponding scripts have two main functions, namely:

  1. run function: This function takes a Playwright instance as an input and performs the scraping process. The function launches a Chromium browser instance, navigates to Amazon, fills in a search query, clicks the search button, and waits for the results to be displayed on the page.
    The save_data function is then called to extract the offer details and store the data in a Data.json file.
  2. save_data function: This function takes a Playwright page object as input and returns a list of dictionaries containing seller and offer details. The details include each listing’s name, condition, price, seller’s name, delivery date, seller percentage, and seller rate.
    Finally, the main function uses the async_playwright context manager to execute the run function. A JSON file containing the seller details of the Amazon seller data script you just executed would be created.

Step 4: Run your code and collect the scraped data from Amazon.
