Using Calibre for physical library cataloging. Possible to pull Amazon price info?

Hi, I have inherited from 5k to 10k books from my in-laws estate. For the family I am currently scanning and entering the ISBN info into excel but would like to dump those into Calibre to have it pull the metadata for me so the family can browse what was in the library. I know how to do all of that. However, part of this process would involve selling off portions nobody wants. Is it possible to have Calibre pull highest and lowest selling price from amazon and display it somehow?

slightly

If you are scanning the ISBN

If you see a 2 section Barcode:
The big part is ISBN the supplemental MAY be price (not always set) with a leading Currency indicator and ASSUMED 2decimals.

50799 =US$ $7.99

which scrapes a Web site. You only need to add your get price tweak in the (user) configuration section
