📦 How many results can you scrape with Amazon Best Seller scraper?

Amazon Best Sellers scraper can return up to tens of thousands of results on average. However, you have to keep in mind that scraping amazon.com has many variables to it and may cause the results to fluctuate case by case. There’s no one-size-fits-all-use-cases number. The maximum number of results may vary depending on the complexity of the input, location, and other factors. Some of the most frequent cases are:

  • website gives a different number of results depending on the type/value of the input
  • website has an internal limit that no scraper can cross
  • scraper has a limit that we are working on improving

Therefore, while we regularly run Actor tests to keep the benchmarks in check, the results may also fluctuate without our knowing. The best way to know for sure for your particular use case is to do a test run yourself.

☝️ Tips and tricks

  • By default, this Amazon scraper extracts the 37 top Best Seller subcategories. A deeper level of extraction can be added to allow you to scrape the top-selling items from the first level of the main categories' sub-divisions.
  • The default depth of the crawl is limited to two subcategories. There is a way around this restriction. Start on the main category, scrape two departments. Then remove duplicate category URLs from there and feed them back into the scraper again.

❓FAQ

Do I need proxies to scrape Amazon?

For the most reliable results of scraping, you will need to use some sort of proxy along with the scraper to prevent its detection by target websites. You can use both Apify Proxy and custom HTTP or SOCKS5 proxy servers.

To engage custom proxies specifically, you will need to specify them in the scheme://user:password@host:port format. Multiple proxies should be separated by a space or new line and the URL scheme can be either HTTP or SOCKS5. User and password might be omitted, but the port must always be present.

Can I integrate Amazon Best Sellers Scraper with other apps?

Yes. Amazon Best Sellers can be connected with almost any cloud service or web app thanks to integrations on the Apify platform. You can integrate with Make, Zapier, LangChain, Slack, Airbyte, GitHub, Google Sheets, Google Drive, and more.

Or you can use webhooks to carry out an action whenever an event occurs, e.g. get a notification whenever this Amazon web scraper successfully finishes a run.

Can I use Amazon Best Sellers Scraper with API?

Yes, you can do so by using Apify API. It gives you programmatic access to the Apify platform. The API is organized around RESTful HTTP endpoints that enable you to manage, schedule, and run Apify Actors.
