Frequently Asked Questions
What do projects typically cost?
We typically charge a few hundred to a few thousand dollars per month for a data feed. This includes setting up the crawler, monitoring and maintaining it, QA, and infrastructure-related charges.
What can I do with a smaller budget?
Try Portia. It’s a browser-based point and click app that lets you create web crawlers. It works for many simple sites, and you can get started for free by creating a Scrapy Cloud account.
What affects a project’s costs?
Project costs depend on the target site’s size, how often it changes, whether it uses bot countermeasures, the number of records and fields you’re after, and the data processing steps you’d like us to take.
How will you ship our data?
Most of our clients retrieve their data in bulk using our storage API. Other clients prefer that we ship their data to an Amazon S3 container or similar. We can also set up an API so you can get your data on a per record basis.
Can you help us with integrating our data?
Our clients usually do the integration themselves, but we can go the extra mile and do it for you if you provide us with crystal clear specs and mappings. We only accept back-end development work in Python.
What happens after we reach out to you?
A Technical Sales rep will schedule a short call. If we’re a good fit, a Solution Architect will go through your project’s specifics and request any missing details. You’ll typically get an estimate within two business days.
Is there anything you need from us?
Annotated screenshots of the records and the fields you’d like to scrape are extremely helpful. We can provide faster estimates and ensure that there are no loose ends or surprises after a project starts.
What is your project workflow?
After you approve our quote, we’ll introduce you to a project manager who will put our engineers to work. Once they’re done, our QA team will verify that your requirements have been met. We’ll provide you with sample data for review and then finalize your project once you accept.
Helped us monitor 2 million products.
We wanted a dashboard to compare products offered by UK retailers. Scrapinghub's excellent engineers helped us scrape the 2 million records we needed on a weekly basis.

Scraped 50 websites daily within a month.
Our time-sensitive study involved compiling data on the 2015 Canadian federal election. Scrapinghub scraped about 50 websites daily over the period of a month. We weren’t familiar with many of the technical aspects of scraping but the Scrapinghub team patiently and promptly answered our questions. The data we needed were delivered on time and in a format that helped make our research project a success.
