        Unfortunately, the code uses a browser plugin that is not ours – some other company builds it and we cannot provide answers on why it doesnt work.
        Most likely you are getting blocked by Walmart.

Is it legal to scrape data from these eCommerce platforms and use it for monetary benefits? Such as by creating a price comparison website?
