The WPI Scraping Service allows you to scrape prices from ANYWHERE with no limitations, even websites using Ajax to load their prices.
Install as you would install any other plugin. From your wp-admin area, go to Plugins->Add new-> Upload Plugin.
From there simply select the zip file which you will get once purchasing and click install.
The WPI Scraping Service is tied to the Price Comparison Pro plugin, after install and configuration you will have access to the options regarding the scraping.
- Proxy and Scraper Configuration
You can scrape prices using your own website with Standard scraping. However, you may wish to scrape through a proxy or through our PhantomJS Service (WPI Scraping Service)
You will have four options to pick from. If in doubt, Standard Scraping is what you want. If the scraped page is using Ajax to load prices (you can check by viewing the source of the page and if you can’t find the price, it’s using ajax) then you’ll need to use our Scraping Service. If you wish to simulate scraping from a different country, or you wish to rotate the scraper IP address to avoid detection then you’ll have to use proxies.
- WPI Scraper Service API Key (optional)
Some websites use Ajax to load their prices. This makes it impossible to grab the prices without simulating a browser fully. If you are scraping prices from these types of sites, we have created the WPI Scraper Service to help.
