Use a store inventory excel and scrape 'picture' and 'short description' from external website.
Hi all, I'm building a woocommerce powered webshop for a client (comic book shop) and looking for an expert in data scraping. Every item (about 20 000 of them) in our excel file has a unique id (=the external webpages folder) which can be used to know exactly on which page the data should be scraped from. the data would all be scraped from the same website but just a different page for every item.
for ex. and item with 'ID578942' should be scraped from [url removed, login to view]
What exactly needs to be scraped:
1. product short description
2. product image url
So basically we want some sort of script/macro to scrape this data for each item and put them in 2 extra columns.
IMPORTANT!! We also need to have this script/macro as afterwards it will be used by us on a weekly basis to update new items included in our excel file. Some urls in the sheet might not be found (404 error) which should result in 2 empty fields.
This excel file will be used by us to import all items in our woocommerce webshop.
Attached already a snip it from an external pages html (marked in yellow what should be scraped).
Looking forward to your reactions & suggestions, I'll pick a freelancer for this job by the end of the week!

Will a code with imacros work for you? I can create a script for imacros which you can use with firefox, chrome, or internet explorer addons. Let me know and I can give you a sample scrap. Thanks
