    data feed for new affiliates??
    LinkShare MerchandiserTM Program:
    http://www.linkshare.com/rc/merchandiser_aff.shtml

    I am wondering if there is a way for new affiliates to get data feeds from linkshare.

    Their criteria is kind of high and I don't want to pay $250 fee for that. Did they ever approve new affiliates for the merchandiser program before?

    Link shares RSS Feed Approval process.....
    Hi !

    I am not sure here. I can't get any straight answers from these people. I spoke to a guy at ASW, and he stated he would help out, but I can't be sure of this so I'd be very interested in hearing what you find out.

    and how do you implement these data feeds, Eric?
    Hi Eric Ewe and other who can shed light,
    What is the best way for an affiliate to implement data feeds? What kind of engineer/programmer to look for? Where? Platform? Auto update?

    Hi

    I emailed the Merchant directly and was told I'd get a data feed ASAP. That was a few days ago.

    Though I have not gotten any instructions on how to add this feature, I will try to keep you updated as I go.

    Best of wishes.

    A merchant can notify the Merchandiser people, who make direct contact with the affiliate if access is requested and granted.

    Otherwise, there are some merchants who will provide feed independently directly to the affiliate.

    Working link for http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=5517

    Another option is: PopShops.com
    or GoldenCan.com

    Other than that, there are quite a few LS and CJ merchants that are offering free feed outside of the standard payable feeds.
