    Merchant Feed Dropped from 1000s to 49
    Just a reminder to check your merchants on a regular basis, there's always one more thing that can go wrong. I mildly flipped when I saw a merchant who dropped from 1000s of items to 49. I wrote the merchant twice but haven't heard back. Also wrote PS just in case there was some sort of glitch.

    In the meantime, empty pages. It's just too much work to pull them down and go through all my other pages and deactivate links pointing to them.

    I have to periodically check for "zeros." A merchant will change all their skus which means you have to go in and put products back.

    I wish I had products to put back! Thanx for the SKU "zero" trick, one more to watch out for.

    Isn't that aggravating! The same merchants do it on a regular basis.

    I wish merchants realized how damaging to our and their business messing with their data base is - If I have to pull products from one merchant too many times because they mess with the data base or SKUs, they invariably get left off after I get annoyed replacing their products every few days.

    I've had Pop Shops online for less than a day and the majority of their products went inactive. It's bad business. A stable data base is a prerequisite of launching an affiliate marketing program.

    The KISS (Keep it SIMPLE) principle applies here. :-)
    Peace,
