    ETA on Amazon?
    Just wondering when/if Amazon will be on Pop Shops. Forgot who it was but somebody said they would eventually be on Pop Shops. Thanks.

    Bump.

    I know other people were asking about this one as well. Is it soon? Not going to happen? This is one I really want because they don't have the difficulties a lot of other merchants are having.

    Thanks.

    Hey Trust,
    It will happen one day, but it's not around the corner. There are a number of technical reasons for this, with many of our requested features taking priority. (Their one-day cookie, the fact that so many people already promote them, commission structure, and other issues make them less requested by affiliates.) The fact that they are API-based make them a different animal when it comes to integration into PS.

    I'll let you know when we do integrate.

    Have to disagree with you on some of that, about Amazon being less requested. I see 4 different threads in this forum with affiliates mentioning Amazon.

    I want them and then:
    Amazon in PopShops?

    Had 2 affiliates in that thread wanting them -

    http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread...ghlight=amazon

    Any Wishes in development?

    Another affiliate - "I wish for Amazon to be added"

    http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread...ghlight=amazon

    What I would like for Christmas from PopShops!

    "And one merchant - Amazon. I've written but have never received a response from them."

    http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread...ghlight=amazon

    I way say it's probably one that a lot of affiliates would like to see.

    As far as the commission structure, I like it.

    Electroncis they pay 4% which is more than other major electronics merchants like Buy.com, Best Buy, Vanns that pay 3%.

    And the rest I make anywhere from 7% - 8% and make commissions on 3rd party sales as well. Then throw on top they're the biggest internet merchant, huge catalog, one of the best customer satisfaction levels, in the mid 90's and one merchant I don't worry about going bankrupt etc.

    "I'll let you know when we do integrate."

    Thanks, that is good to know. That is one I really like to see there.

    How many we need to have Popshops consider to add Amazon?

    Exclamation If wishes were datafeeds...
    Okay, we get it: Everybody and their AffiliateHound wants Amazon.
    So do we! (They're a fellow Seattle start-up after all...) But it's not going to happen anytime soon due to the technical hurdle that Jessie mentioned (but apparently didn't stress enough). So here's a little more about that:

    Amazon's feed is based on an API, while all our other merchants offer downloadable feeds that we can store in our database. That makes integrating them much more expensive and complicated, slows down search for everyone, and pushes other development projects back (like merchant preferences, folders, autofeed rules exposure, our simple API, etc.).

    But let the record show: "integrate Amazon" is on our to-do list, and we have been working on what the best approach is. When we figure it out and get it in gear, we promise not to keep it a secret. Until then, please enjoy our upcoming new features (like folders!).

    Matt you are aware of this I assume? --> http://forum.abestweb.com/showpost.p...6&postcount=74

    I do believe that for a service like yours you might be obligated to update prices real time via an API. But getting the say 1,925,309 apparel items via XML in file format is helpful.
