webup:andrewc: Yes, it's very easy using the API. I'm not sure what use it is though?
Very useful to those in business. analysing what others are selling is very important.
Price points, how long they have been holding that stock etc.
Right. It does appear though that you're actually scraping Trade Me -- why would you do that when there's an API? Much easier and not against their T&Cs.
Also, if for whatever reason you want a local database of items, you'd be better off with a database system, not a spreadsheet, and separating the fields so you can search or sort by them easily.
I love your site bidbud I think its great and very useful.
I'm glad you like BidBud anyway...
