Unable to scrape data

Closed

Hi, I am trying to scrape data from on Facebook marketplace. I tried tinkering with the search URL and listing URL fields but both runs failed to returned any data. Can you please let me know if I am doing something wrong?

User avatar

Hi, thank you for trying out the scraper. Currently, the scraper doesn't support arbitrary search urls.

Listing urls: We we use if say you have a predefined list of item urls you want the scraper to scrape.

Search urls: Currently these support urls belonging to a particular category for example

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/category/vehicles?minPrice=455&minYear=1999&make=2070821889637770&model=568816268471873&transmissionType=automatic&exact=false

Or you can directly use the Category filter to scrape the data you are looking for.

I faced the same problem and even the format that u provided didn't help to scrape any data

Could u please tell me what can be the problem of 0 output?

User avatar

Please provide me with the query URL (or the query parameters) so that I can check it on my end. Also, regarding the 0 output, sometimes it may happen that fb won't show us results, and the reason for this could vary, from using non-supported queries to the proxy being detected by fb. Thanks.

Since I tried a pack of links, let me provide u some of them

The short version: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/category/apparel

The precise one: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/category/mens?minPrice=0&itemCondition=used_like_new&exact=false

Also I used the link provided by u above as an example

Could u check, whether it is my config problem (Ivory Coast proxies or smth?) or is it some error on fb side? Thanks in advance

Hi, actually to be able to search apparel, the most effective way would be to use the category: "Apparel". But, I checked and for some reason we are getting 0 results for the category apparel. Let me have a look at it and check what's the issue.

Thanks.

Yep, I tried this approach also Didn't help much

I also tried to use category and scrape auto, didn't work either

User avatar

By auto, if you mean vehicles then I just checked and it seems to be working fine for me.

User avatar

Thank you for pointing out the issue. I checked apparel and it seems to had a bug which has been fixed.

You can use category: Apperal

Also, custom search is coming soon too.

Please do let me know in case of any issues.
