Build me a scraper

Build me a scraper

I need a python code that scrapes a stock-request API on the ‘cart’ page of a large drop-shipping platform (comparable to Amazon).

The code should work following these steps:

1. Read '[login to view URL]' file (attached to this request) and use the Product ID’s as input for the API.

2. request the current stock-level of the products imported in step 1.

- * Stock = 0 >> Out of stock >>> please register ‘0’

- * Stock = 1-499 >>> please register the actual stock value

- * Stock = 500 >>> Please register ‘500+’

3. Export the stock results to '[login to view URL]' in column 1 (attached to this request)

4. Column 0 contains the product ID’s. Name column 1 with ‘today's date’ > e.g. ’03-10’ (3 October)

General Info:

- Scrape the stock information from the Dutch drop-shipping site: [login to view URL]

- The Cart URL is [login to view URL]

- The code must automatically run itself everyday at 9:00 pm.

- In case the code gets stuck or does not complete it’s task fully, it should reset itself automatically and give it another try at 10:00 pm. If it fails again, it should reset itself and automatically run again the next day at 9:00 pm, etc.

Additional info & tips:

Elaboration on step1:

- the [login to view URL] file that’s attached to this request is an example with 5 example product ID’s. The actual code must run for any amount of product ID’s listed in column 0 (first column in CSV file). The actual import csv will have the same column indexation and ‘lay-out’ as this example file.

- The import CSV contains 5 example product ID’s you can use to test the code. For your convenience, these are the test product ID’s with corresponding product pages:

- 9000000011277884 (fridge) >> stock most likely between 1-499

- 9200000040251760 (trash-can) >> stock most likely 500+

- 9200000078940335 (game) >> only 5 per purchase allowed, but more on stock

- 9200000030698665 (table) >> stock most likely very low

- 9200000091266387 (book) >> stock most likely 500+

Elaboration on step 2:

- The way to manually request the stock value is by adding a product to the cart, go to the cart-page and then set the purchase amount to 500pcs. Most likely, the actual stock value is lower then 500 and therefore the website will return the current stock value that the customer’s able to buy. This is the stock-value that I’m looking for.

- When requested the stock-value, there are 3 possible outcomes:

- * Stock = 0 >> Out of stock >> please register ‘0’

- * Stock = 1-499 >> please register the actual stock value

- * Stock = 500 >>> Please register ‘500+’

- The API uses some (java) code to process/alter the stock-value before it’s shown on the screen. It’s part of the job to simulate this code in order to request the stock-value.

- Please note that there are some other circumstances that might actually change the amount of items the customer’s are able to buy. For example, product ID 9200000078940335 has many items (around 130) on stock, but the customer is only allowed to buy 5 items at a time in the ‘gaming’ category. Therefore, the code should return ’130’, not ‘5’.

- I believe the API only needs a product ID for returning the stock value. Please let me know if there are other input requirements.
