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.
