## What does JB Hi-Fi Scraper do?

This scraper creates an API for JB Hi-Fi to enable you to extract product information and pricing from the [jbhifi.com.au](https://jbhifi.com.au) online store. 

The JB Hi-Fi API is free to use and will let you scrape and extract e-commerce data as often as you need to. The data you extract can be downloaded in structured format so that you can use it in your own applications, spreadsheets, reports, or tools.

Scraping JB Hi-Fi could help you identify competition, opportunities, potential leads, and useful contacts. The right data can help you with product tracking, market research, and price monitoring in the tv and video equipment category.

If you need more inspiration, check out [how scraping can help you](https://apify.com/industries/ecommerce-and-retail) get an edge over the competition and stay ahead in e-commerce.

## How much will it cost to scrape JB Hi-Fi?

Running JB Hi-Fi Scraper will consume platform credits. Platform credits are counted in USD and each plan includes a set amount. Check our [platform pricing](https://apify.com/pricing/actors) page for details.

The exact number of platform credits consumed will depend on the actor input settings, the type of job it performs, how often it runs, and for how long.

The best way to find out how many platform credits an actor will consume is to perform a test run. You can then review platform usage in [Billing](https://console.apify.com/billing) and figure out the best Apify subscription plan for your needs.
