    Hello everyone. I'm looking for someone who can write me a piece of software which would gather product information from www.focalprice.com and export it to a CSV file, which I will then use to import the data into my own website. Let me know if you can do this, how much will it cost me and estimated delivery time. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Can do it.
    How many sets of data do you want?

    Basically, I would need the program to go crawl each and every product on that website, get the product name, SKU, category, price, description and image URLs for each product, and then create a CSV with that info. I'm not sure, what exactly did you mean by "sets of data", though.

    You pretty much just said it:)
    "Every product on that website"
    so that would be around 230.000 products according to google.
    Ill see how scrapable they are and PM you when i know my price.
    So long: what is your budget?

    The budget's not big, really. I remember someone on Scriptlance building me the previous version of this one quite cheaply. The reason I'm not using it anymore is because FocalPrice updated their site recently and all the URLs have changed, so the software isn't working anymore. I also can't get in touch with that guy anymore. Think about it, let me know the price and I'll see if I can dig out the money somewhere :)
