Originally, ScrapingBot has been developed to collect data from product pages, such as Amazon or Ebay. Hence why you can collect very specific details like the shipping fees or the EAN. However, don't be fooled by this, it is also very efficient beyond e-commerce websites. Below, we're going to test ScrapingBot on a real estate listing.
Real estate market is an extremely competitive market and you have to be very aware of the price fluctuations, the properties on sale or for rent in your target area or simply keep an eye on competitor's marketshares. The ScrapingBot API is an essential tool to help you in that purpose.
