Go beyond the official Walmart API and use web scraping to extract product info, prices, images, and more from Walmart.

While Walmart does have a developer portal and the Walmart API can be efficient in some use cases, sometimes it will be more effective to rely on web scraping to extract product information at scale. That's where Walmart Scraper comes in.

TL;DR

During the run, the actor will output messages letting you know what is going on. Each message always contains a short label specifying which page from the provided list is currently specified.

When items are loaded from the page, you should see a message about this event with a loaded item count and total item count for each page.

If you provide incorrect input to the actor, it will immediately stop with a failure state and output an explanation of what is wrong.

Tips

Don’t worry if you get slightly different products than you saw in browser page: Walmart orders its products differently for each user.

Final words

Like all my other actors there are lots of new features on the roadmap and I am always open to new ideas. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any feedback, feature requests, or totally new ideas that might be interesting to implement.

P.S. You should always use a proxy to get the best results.
