Payments & Subscriptions
Yes. Outscraper will charge your account balance for $10 and issue an additional invoice with the amount due.
No. The task will be finished and if the task usage will be greater than your account credits you simply will receive an invoice with the outstanding usage.
You can use limits to limit the amount of extracted data.
The limit of queries per second (QPS) depends on the nature of the requests (service, the limit of results, etc.). The average QPS is about 20. Contact us in case you need even more.
Yes. API supports batching by sending arrays with up to 25 queries (e.g., query=text1&query=text2&query=text3). It allows multiple queries to be sent in one request and save on network latency time.
The average response time is 3-5 seconds. But it might depend on the service (speed optimized or no) type and the number of queries per request (batch option).
Google Maps Scraper
Sometimes Google adds other categories to your searches. For example, when you search for restaurants you might see bars, coffee shops, or even hotels. This might lead to irrelevant data, especially when you are using some minor categories like swimming pools.
Outscraper provides you with two tools that you can use to eliminate those categories.
Use the “exact match” checkbox. The parameter specifies whether to return only the categories you selected or everything that Google shows. Make sure you are using the right categories by opening similar places on google and checking the category.
Filter results by applying Filters to the subtypes column. Such filters can eliminate all the irrelevant data and return you only what you need. To avoid empty results, make sure you are familiar with the values of the fields before using the Filters.
You can remove duplicates in one task by selecting the “Drop duplicates” checkbox.
Yes, you can drop duplicates inside one task by using the “Drop duplicates” checkbox (advanced parameters). Alternatively, you can drop it by yourself by using “google_id” or “place_id” fields as unique identifiers for a place.
No. There is no public information about emails connected with the listing on Google Maps. Outscraper uses external sources to find those emails.
You can split your tasks by city/state or by some other unique attributes. For example, you can extract places from New York in the first task, and extract the places from California in the second task.
