Is it possible to integrate Scrapeowl Proxy

Is it possible to integrate Scrapeowl Proxy in SCM to use for Google map/other scraping.

You should be able to use proxies feature in scm if you want.

Actually the Scrapeowl is scraping Api and is very cheap compared to using residential proxies which cost a lot more.
You may please see if it can be integrated in scm

Got it, thanks. There was a similar request to use serp api as well.

Actually scrapeowl is much cheaper and provide more options

Hmm interesting, thanks for the detailed break down.

Do you have a scrape owl api key? If you can share it it will help with implementation.

But since you can do all the scraping with scrape owl, where do you want SCM to work with it?

Scrapeowl offers a free trial without a credit card with 1000 API credits.

If this can be implemented in every function under scrapers in SCM, of course with an option to switch it on or off if someone wants to scrap without using it.

I hope this feature request will be considered. Will reduce the cost of monthly proxy expense and the data amount limitation
Thanks

Currently writing a bunch of tutorials and improving the workflow and ui

But will get around to this
