How To Avoid IP Bans & Bypass CAPTCHA while Scraping Amazon?

avoid IP bans while scraping amazon

Amazon has a very sophisticated web crawling detection mechanism. You can get your IP easily banned if you are not following these simple steps.

  • Keep Changing the IP- If you want to scrape Amazon at scale then you have to keep changing your IPs. You can either buy premium datacenter proxies or use Amazon scraper api to keep the data pipeline active & also bypass CAPTCHA.

  • Custom Headers- Making an HTTP request to Amazon without passing any headers or using the same header with every request will also get your scraper blocked. Remember to create a pool of headers and keep rotating them with every request.

You can also refer to our guide on web scraping Amazon with Python to kick-start scraping Amazon.
