Import.io enables businesses from SMB to enterprise to automate website data extraction from any web page. The solution provides teams like IT, market research, data scientists, marketing, and business intelligence/competitive intelligence with timely, high-quality data sets.
Import.io’s Web Data Integration treats the entire web data lifecycle as a single integrated process where extraction, preparation, integration and analysis can occur in a single environment, providing more data quality and control. Data collected can be viewed and structured, cleansed and organized, visualized and analyzed all within the platform. The data collected can be prepared within the platform then integrated into other systems or processes.
By simply entering a URL, Import.io identifies information from a web page and transforms the page content into a structured format. The platform can collect images, data from lists, nested categories, hidden content and follow pagination structures like get more, next or infinitive scrolling to ensure all data is gathered.
Available as a SaaS or DaaS offering, Import.io serves both individuals or team effort, as well as the large-scale managed data service need for those who just want the data.
Pricing for the SaaS offering is per month, or per year. Phone and online support are available.

Import.io gives you the ability to generate custom data through web scraping. Trying to do this with open source tools is possible, but not easy. Import.io makes it much easier if you're not a programmer or sysadmin, and the pricing is reasonable.
Some workflows could have better UI: sometimes there can be a lot of clicking for repetitive and simple tasks, especially on websites with many pages.

It's a good tool and has successfully built a product that can easily collect data with just a few clicks.
They have changed their terms and are now claiming overuse - despite the fact there used to be an account query limit that prevented you exceeding your plan. They have removed this limit, not updated any terms and conditions and have not notified their customer base in order to try and catch out users and hit them with a large 'overage fee' despite there being no mention of this anywhere on their website.

I first discovered and used Import.io back when they had a free desktop browser - this led me to working with Import.io across a number of projects, something that I wouldn't have been able to do without the free browser. It's a shame that this has gone, but I still can't fault the value behind the product these days.
- Powerful - there's more to just extraction these days, with manipulation and reporting
- SO easy to get started with, with smart data extraction, there's a lot that can be done without REGEX or XPath
- Great support
- It's not affordable for the single user anymore

This saved me at minimum days of manual entry from websites. And that was for a small project. With a large extraction job this would be a life saver.
I set up a extractor to use for data analysis of URLs of many different groups and it was pretty easy to do. I had many contacts from the import.io team and good help. I also worked some on a web crawler. Eventually, I switched off to a different project where I didn't need this functionality, but it worked really well.
I wish products from other for collecting/using data were as good, and that I still had projects that used this excellence product.
