Semantics3 extracts price and product data directly from the vast majority of IR500 retailers in the U.S, several prominent retailers in the U.K. and Australia. Claims to have the world’s largest database of eCommerce product and price data, including 10 billion product offers from 70 million unique products. Retrieve metadata for millions of products via the /skus and /products APIs by UPC, keywords, brand, category and more. Register your interest in any e-commerce product through the /webhooks API and it will send you push notifications when this price of this product changes. Get the current price displayed on any ecommerce URL in structured form using the /realtime APIs.

A very good service indeed. If small to medium business's have resources to consume services like semantics3, they can compete with big brands effectively by matching the price or even beating the price point. The only problem i see is only top 1% of the products are updated hourly and remaining or updated daily. On a busy day like Black friday that can be a disadvantage to most businesses because they may have missed the opportunity. One more way a retailer can use this service is by pricing it lower and then show the pricing for the same from the top brands with semantics3 data. Again realtime price updates upto few minutes would help tremendously. Question: Do they also provide inventory levels from top brands? If yes, that can be a big boost to retailers to push the prices up.

@sridhar_kondoji Re. the price refresh question, we handle this a few ways: 1. During natural peaks like Black Friday, our systems scale up to support the higher expected number of price changes. Our systems are very scalable with spot instances (we've written quite a few posts on our architecture if you're interested). 2. Webhooks / Push API: Most users are only concerned with a subset of the 100s of millions of products that we track. By registering the URLs / Semantics3ID of the products that they're interested in, users can take over control of price refresh. 3. Real-Time Pricing: We're soon going to launch an API which allows users to get real-time pricing for URLs. All in all, we find that a combination of these approaches helps solve price-refresh concerns. Re. inventory levels - we don't carry these I'm afraid.

@govind201 @sridhar_kondoji Thanks for clarification. Please do send us the links on your architecture. Very much interested in reading them. Just 5 people handling all of the infrastructure. That is amazing. Interested in knowing how you all managed to do that.
