    Is it possible to steal someones ecommerce site?

    I don't mean literally steal it - just the product database and then upload it to my own site. We have access to the same products.

    I think this is running on oscommerce but I am not sure:

    www. **kayo**kemp**jewelry** .com

    Take out the ** and type it in as 1 word

    What do you guys think - Possible?

    Willing to pay someone here if they know how to do this.

    Hmm I'm not sure if it is or it isn't...

    In any case, there are a few other sites out there that I know of that I would like to duplicate their product database.

    If anyone knows how to do this kind of thing (and wants to get paid for it), please post here or PM me so we can work something out.

    I am sure someone will come along...

    This is not an oscommerce site, but it does use a similar platform.
    I can create a script for a few hundred and get you a spreadsheet of the database on this site.

    PM me if you are interested.

    Web scraping would be your best bet if you can get a copy of webscraper pro it would be pretty easy as the good thing about a database driven website is that it has structure is pretty much the same thing on every page.

    Found a copy of webscrapper pro and it wasn't worth the install. After loading down my system with a sqlserver and sql browser the database parsing enging crashed when importing more than a thousand items, PLUS it was way SLOOOWW.
