    You must have heard about retail arbitrage.
    It involves buying from a local store or online marketplace such as walmart.com etc and then selling it for a profit on ebay/amazon anywhere else for a higher price.

    Simply put, buy items which are on clearance for really cheap and then sell them on these sites(Amazon/Ebay etc) for a higher price.

    The issue is when you need to find the prices of many ecommerce stores in a short time so you can get a product for the cheapest price possible. That is where this scraper comes into play to automate the process.
    It scrapes all the information and puts it in a simple excel sheet so you pick the cheapest price.

    Thanks for sharing.
    What would be interesting is how to use it to compare the prices etc... to do a real digging to find items to buy low on amazon to sell high on eBay.
