Scrape website and autobid on auction site


I have a website that I am looking to scrape and perform actions depending on the data that is scraped.

The process will be:

1 - Login to the site

The site is secured by a username and password but also an additional security question of which there are three questions / answers. e.g. Q. What is your pets name? A. Bingo

The site uses HTTPS.

2. Once authenticated, there is a main screen showing all the auctions that are currently live with their end times and price.

This needs to be scraped so that logic can be applied later.

3. In the last few seconds of the auction a decision needs to be made on whether to bid. This will be determined by the auction current price and a predetermined logic

e.g. If price for product A is < 100 then bid (note there are two variables - price and rate - I will discuss this in detail with the freelancer)

The proposal should be:

Cloud hosted (if possible) - not a deal breaker


Limit the number of calls to the website - i.e. if there is no auction closing within next few hours then don't refresh data ever minute

Auditable - output the decisions made to a log

Capable of working in 'test' mode - i.e. state what action would have been taken

- Time to deliver
