Small business (50 or fewer emp.)

I am using Apify since early 2022 for social media data collection, scraping content, user details, and more via complete automation. I use Zapier, Make and n8n for these tasks by integrating Apify with them and this saves me a lot of time and money without compromising anything. It just outperforms my expectations. Highly recommended for scraping anything you need to develop your own products.

Frequently asked questions

What is web scraping and how does it relate to product development?

Before you launch a new product, it's important to know the current market climate, including your competition and target audience. With web scraping, you can get relevant product and pricing data at scale, which will help position your product and gain a competitive edge. You can also extract data from social media to gain an understanding of your potential customers and their attitudes and preferences, which will help shape your product strategy.

It is legal to scrape publicly available data such as product descriptions, prices, or ratings. On the other hand, certain types of data, such as personal data or copyrighted content, are under special legal protection and you should not scrape these without first making sure you follow the relevant laws and regulations. Read through our blog post on the legality of web scraping to learn more about the law and extracting data from the web.

I couldn’t find a scraper for my specific website. Can I build it?

Knock yourself out! Our platform was built to host and run thousands of scrapers. You can customize a universal Web Scraper or start a new one with some of our ready-made templates in Python or JavaScript. You can keep the scraper to yourself or make it public by adding it to Apify Store (and even make a little cash out of it). You can also integrate your scraper with other popular data processing services such as Keboola or Airbyte.

I don’t need to download scraped data. Is there an API I can use instead?

Yes, there is. You can have programmatic access to any scraper on the platform via Apify API. It is organized around RESTful HTTP endpoints and can be accessed either by using Python or Node.js clients, or manually. This API will enable you to fetch results directly from any of your datasets. Check out the Apify API reference docs for full details.

I'm not a developer. Can you build a personalized scraper for me?

Sure! You can either sign up for a custom solution on our Enterprise page or, if you're searching for a more affordable solution, get an external developer to create the scraper for you via our Apify freelancer program.

I don’t need scrapers for product development, but I know somebody who does. Can I refer them?

Yes. Our affiliate program offers up to 50% recurring commission for its participants. You can check out the terms & conditions here.
