Step 2: Find the right Costco from the marketplace
However, users in the UK need to access a different domain which is www.costco.co.uk.
It is important that users enter the right domains because the local warehouse product availability and prices differ for each of these locations. So, a product available at the U.S. outlet may not necessarily be available in the UK.
Once you find a suitable Costco domain, proceed to add the category URLs into the web scraper. By default the sitemap URL will be there and this will scrape the entire catalogue of products. If you wanted to scrape only a category e.g https://www.costco.ca/office-products.html please insert this url
Users need to run the scraper once they have added the relevant URLs.The scrapers will continue to collect data from the website, categorise them and make them available for storage. The scraping process depends on the kind of scraper you choose.
For instance, a reputable data scraper like Webautomation.io, offers the best possible options for users. We will talk about these options ahead.
Once the scraping process completes, users can export data for further analysis and use. This is where Web Automation.io’s spreadsheet conversion option comes in handy. It allows users to gather all the data, and turn it into a spreadsheet for better analysis and usage.
