To use this template, place it on an empty folder and open it with Helium Scraper 3. Check this video for a quick walkthrough. The template has two globals that extract different pieces of information:
  • ProductLinks: This global extracts top-level information without visiting any actual product page. Before running it, visit any category or run a search in AliExpress using Helium Scraper's browser, and optionally modify the maximum number of pages to extract from.
  • ProductDetails: This global visits each of the links extracted by ProductLinks using off-screen browsers and select every possible product variation.
After running ProductDetails, the full data can be viewed as a single table at Project Explorer > Data Flow > Queries > Variations. This query will show one row per product variation. Since the extracted data is not automatically cleared when a new extraction starts, data must be manually cleared by right-clicking either Data.ProductLinks or Data.ProductDetails under Project Explorer > Database and selecting Clear All Data.

Since sites tend to change frequently, this template may stop working at any time. We'll do our best to monitor and keep these templates up to date, but if you find any template that is not working, just let as know. Also, if there's any site you'd like us to add in this template list, you can send us a template request.
