Step-by-step guide to scraping Amazon product data
To scrape Amazon data using Smartproxy’s datacenter proxies, you’ll first need to do a little setup in the dashboard.
- If you haven't done so already, grab a datacenter proxy plan that best suits your needs.
- To change your default username or password, navigate to the Proxy setup → Authentication method section. To change your password, click the Edit password icon next to it. If you want to change your username, delete the current user and create a new one with your desired credentials.
- Next, configure various settings in the Endpoint generator. Enter the same username and password from above in the Authentication method section.
- Select a Proxy location. You can choose from various countries or select All to have one assigned randomly.
- Select a Session type between Rotating and Static. If you select a rotating type, the IP address will change by itself, but you’ll have to rotate your headers with each request. Meanwhile, if you use a static session type, you shouldn’t make too many requests from the same IP address, and make sure to change your headers frequently to avoid them getting rate-limited or blocked.
- Choose an Output format. The choice depends on how and where you’ll want to implement it.
- You’ll see a list of generated endpoints on the right side. If you wish, you can increase or decrease the maximum number of endpoints to generate (only if your session type is sticky).
- Finally, save the list as a TXT or CSV file or copy it to your clipboard to save it anywhere easy to find.
