Information

Cheapero was an automated product crawler with powerful crawl technology and a backend. It was developed without a framework. The backend did crawl products with Python and put them into a queue. That queue was consumed by the PHP backend to format and insert products into Cheapero's database. Cheapero also crawled prices from different portals/marketplaces such as eBay or Amazon. Finally, users who have access to cheapero can look for products and instantly see where they are the cheapest. The system generates income by distributing affiliate links.
