Are there any datasets on Amazon products' price history? http://camelcamelcamel.com/ doesn't make it available and the Amazon Product Advertising API doesn't seem to give access to the price history.

  • you could also try to collect your own data with tools such as import.io

www.keepa.com is a similar website to camelcamelcamel. I cannot find a way to download the data but maybe you will.

In addition, Terapeak provide a free package with limited api calls (500/months) where you can find historical prices.

http://www.isbndb.com has a good API that uses XML calls/responses to get new/used prices from Amazon.com as well as a number of other sites like abebooks, half.com, etc...

You can also scrape (or better yet contact and ask the folks at) https://thetracktor.com which seems to have some great historical data.

EDIT - Adding example:

  • https://thetracktor.com/ajax/prices/?id=881549&days=90 is the JSON response powering the graph at https://thetracktor.com/detail/B0054JJ0QW/, for example.

  • @DeerHunter can you elaborate? https://thetracktor.com/ajax/prices/?id=881549&days=90 is the JSON response powering the graph at https://thetracktor.com/detail/B0054JJ0QW/, for example. Jul 3 '14 at 18:51

keepa.com is offering an api (https://keepa.com/#!pricedataapi), they even offering an SDK for Java: https://github.com/keepacom/api_backend . But it seems like you have to pay for it..

EZSiteTracker’s Price Tracking Tool allows you to detect the price change of your favorite product/s online and get instant notifications via email. Visit: http://www.ezsitetracker.com/PriceTracking

I believe this api provides exactly what you are looking for - Amazon Price History API

I recently published it and made available virtually for free in case you only need info about a few products.
