I have tried running it using the attached URL and it doesn't output any products.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=tomatoes&i=amazonfresh&crid=3S097IRK5OM1E&sprefix=tomatoes%2Camazonfresh%2C50&ref=nb_sb_noss_1

It was working previously for the same URL.

Hi Alex, thanks a lot for reporting this! We are currently aware of a very high increase in Amazon's blocking and are working on a solution to help decrease it ;) In the meantime, try using residential proxies, which should help prevent the blocking.

Here is the warning mail in case you've missed it:

1Hello,
2
3Over the past few days, Amazon has significantly elevated its anti-bot blocking rate, even affecting residential proxies. While it may not impact all page types uniformly, the general consequences include:
4
5Prolonged execution times (attributed to frequent retries)
6Increased costs (stemming from heightened proxy traffic and extended execution times)
7Potentially missing results (if the page exhausts all retry attempts)
8This heightened blocking is possibly temporary, considering Amazon's tendency for aggressive A/B testing. Meanwhile, our development team is actively exploring avenues to enhance the success rate.
9
10We advise you to review your recent and upcoming runs to assess whether the current scraping performance aligns with your specific requirements.
11
12We will provide you with further updates on the situation in the coming days.

Hi again, happy to inform you that we've just updated the Actor with some improvements to our backend ;) From out testing it helps to significantly decrease the rate of Amazon's blocking.

Try it out and let me know how it works, thanks!
