    It's all the products from one merchant with decriptions, pictures and affiliate links, etc put into one file that you can download. Datafeeds make it easier to keep up to date on product listing or you can make lots of products pages and other stuff.

    Think of the datafeed as a collection of products. So you can call it a product feed.
    It is a way for a merchant to provide details of all of the products that they offer.
    A lot of merchants update the datafeed daily. This allows them to make changes when items go out of stock.
    A lot of affiliates use datafeeds to show products on thier sites.
    Some do it dynamically (a whole topic on its own) some create static pages with the datafeeds.
    The datafeeds normally include the name of the product, a description, price, picture, affiliate link etc

    What do you mean they do it dynamically?

    Can you direct me to a good topic on it?

    Dynamically means they have code on their server. They upload the entire datafeed to their site and the code makes it looks like there are all these extra pages on a person's site to the end user when what there really is is a database and a a computer program.
