Why Choose ScraperAPI over OxyLabs?

After building hundreds of web scrapers, we understand that there are enough moving parts that you shouldn’t also have to worry about plan limitations, pricing, and scope.

Instead of making you decide between ten different plans and combinations (each with its own limitations and capabilities), the only thing you need to think about when choosing ScraperAPI is how many requests you’ll need.

We’ve developed an API specifically to help you handle all the complexities of scraping the web with one simple GET request. This means you can start scraping sites within minutes.

No extra software, no extra fees, and no extra decisions. Just data! 

Need help creating your first scraper? Our support team is equipped to walk you through every step of the way.

All of the Internet’s Data Waiting for Your Call

ScraperAPI is ready to handle all of your data scraping needs- no matter the scale of your project.

1- Never get blocked

Our API rotates your IP with every request from a pool of millions of proxies across over a dozen ISPs and automatically retries failed requests.

2- Get accurate data fast

We automatically prune slow proxies from our pools periodically and guarantee unlimited bandwidth with speeds up to 100Mb/s, perfect for writing speedy web crawlers.

3- Never handle CAPTCHAs

Call ScraperAPI and forget about annoying CAPTCHAs. No need for 3rd party services or any extra software.

4- Automate javascript rendering

Simply set render=true and you’re ready to go. As simple as that.

Do you want more customization? ScraperAPI allows you to customize request headers, request type, IP geolocation, and more.
