    You need to add the - AvantLink Web Service Datafeed Client - to the list. It's different from the API.

    Wouldn't DIYThemes and Thesis be the same thing? That is the only product DIYThemes has...

    Check Out Datafeedr, if you haven't already
    I have started using Datafeedr, and it is fantastic. Better than PopShops or others I've tried. It's powerful, updates feeds automatically (v2.0) and many other power user features.

    I tried to vote for it, but was given this error message:
    CaliforniaJerry, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

    Sorry, but the voting is only open to previously established members. If brand new members were allowed to sign up and vote, that would obviously create some potential problems. Stick around though! You'll be able to vote next year.

    Thumbs up PopShops is the Best
    From what I've seen so far, PopShops DataPack API is a good solution for building automated, sustainable, and long-term income-generating affiliate sites. It allows you to use product feeds from 1000's of merchants / vendors from all the popular affiliate networks (not just Amazon or Ebay)... and it costs only $45/month (20% yearly rate discount with 10% discount coupon).

    I signed up for the PopShops DataPack API 30-day trial, and so far it looks much better than Datafeedr for integrating into a WordPress site.

    Datafeedr's support is excellent, and their forum is active, but you can't integrate product listings into Wordpress very well. You have to build your shop in the Datafeedr backend store-builder and then load it into a separate area of your Wordpress site. If you try to place product listings into the regular category/post structure of WordPress, there will be problems with expired products from the feed.

    With the PopShops API, you can integrate product listings right into the WordPress categories and posts themselves. Using your theme's single.php, category.php, or home.php files, it is possible to integrate PopShops into an already existing, content-filled site, or start from scratch.

    Using the PopShops API and data feed support, when a product is removed from one of your merchants, it is possible to automatically replace that product with a similar one without removing the post or changing the page permalink. You won't kill any backlinks already pointing to it.

    You can even create automation events that can be called by cpanel CRON jobs. This will allow you to fill your site with products on a more gradual basis. This will cause Google, Yahoo, & Bing search engines to keep coming back to spider your pages and give you better rankings in the organic search engine results.
