Retail & Shopping
Our retail and shopping crawl packages regularly crawl product listings on a variety of websites. They typically produce millions of records every month.
Crawl packages for specific retail websites are viewable in the 80legs Marketplace once you log in. You can also request your own if you don't see the one you need.
A record in a retail or shopping crawl package will look something like the one shown below. Each record is in XML or CSV format, allowing for complete parsing and processing of the data as you see fit.
