It was almost impossible to get out of the contract.,

I primarily used import.io as a means to refresh feeds used for digital marketing within Google adwords in addition to similar digital strategy. It is essentially a scraper that can be set up within minutes without the need to learn or maintain code of any kind. It was initially free with a desktop application.
  • Scrapes specific parts of webpages
  • Crawls pages and scrapes based on patterns you specify via examples
  • Very effective and accurate when it comes to scraping data of large URL lists
  • Pricing needs to be addressed immediately , this use to be free and so helpful
  • A desktop application needs to be reintroduced since it recently went all cloud based
  • Additional scraping features would be nice to see when compared to other open source competitors
Import.io excels greatly at being able to execute a scraping campaign for your needs within only a few minutes. It is appropriate if you need to be able to scrape data of a large or small scale on a daily basis. Once you've created a scraping crawler you can just execute it and come back after lunch to enjoy your data without second guessing the accuracy of it.

Import.io Review: "Overselling leads to underperformance and way too expensive"

We used the Import.io service to crawl a website for meta tags before translations.
  • It promised to be super easy to use - no coding needed at all.
  • It requires coding for the exact thing we needed it to do. It promised this was not the case.
We needed it to do one thing - get metadata from a website. It was able to do this, but only with the help of their support who had to write code for us. The pricing was way off and the sales way too aggressive, which resulted in the product under performing.
