Project Description

I need to be able to have a tool that pnce an item is enter it will pull up the prices on ebay and amazon and the calculate the price difference between the 2.

the tool will do automated daily searches of items and categories that I setup and it will have a report ready of what is profitable for me to list on either platform

I need a very simple software that will take [url removed, login to view] marketplace as the basis and compare prices on Amazon with the prices on eBay. Here is the basic structure of the procedure:

Overall Flow of the software

1. I should be able to choose a category or sub category in [url removed, login to view]

e.g. Electronics
or e.g. Electronics->Home Audio

2. Then the software should look through the first N items which are sorted according to the bestselling criteria of [url removed, login to view] (N will be an input parameter) and these N items will also be filtered according to:

2-i. Price Range (e.g. 50-100)

3. Through this procedure the software should obtain the price of the item (where this price will be the lowest featured merchant price for a NEW item)
4. And the UPC or EAN of the item
5. Then the software should lookup this UPC or EAN under eBay and find the first N lowest priced Buy it Now offers (only for Brand New offers)

6. The result of all this work should be presented in a tab delimited (or spreadsheet format) format with column headers

Item Name
Item UPC
Item EAN
Item ASIN
Item Amazon Price
Item Ebay Price-1
Item Ebay Price-2
Item EbayPrice-N
