Regarding the API Access.
If I understand correctly, I set up a website to be crawled for thousands of product prices.
I will be able to develop a script which will have API access to the data and be able to determine if a product price dropped, etc...?
Thanks for reaching out!
With the "API Access", you can easily get Octoparse data connected to your database and retrieve extracted data.
Octoparse provides API Access(Data export API) and Advanced API (What's the difference between standard API and advanced API?). With the advanced API, you can manage tasks on your end instead of using Octoparse.
If you mainly want to deliver the scraped product prices to your database or website, then I think API Access is enough for you. As for the price dropping, not sure if I understand your question, API mainly works as a bridge to connect and deliver data.
If you're interested in API, here are our API docs for you to explore:

Let me know if my answer makes sense to you.
