Tips and tricks

Scraping options

Javascript rendering

If you need to scrape a page that requires you to render the javascript to load the data you need, then we can fetch these pages using a headless browser. To enable rendering, simply use render=true API parameter.

Custom headers and cookies

Sometimes you might need to send custom headers or cookies to the website you want to scrape. That might help you to keep a certain session, or increase the scraping success rate. You can do so easily by using request_headers and request_cookies parameters.

Proxy geolocation

To ensure your requests come from a specific country, you can use the country parameter. We currently support these countries:

  • United States (country=us)
  • Anywhere in the world - (country=random)

Country code must be specified in alpha2 format.
