    google affiliate datafeed
    Hello all,

    I am kind of confused on this one, I tried to look and search but I don't get it,
    How can I get the datafeed from google, for example if I want sears datafeed and I am already approved for them,
    how do I get the datafeed? and do I have to pay something for this service? and do I download it directly from my account or I have request it or go to some other sites?

    wonder if there is a guide for all that,

    I believe things are very easy for me on shareasale (SAS), where I can access datafeed and download them and put them on my website, but it seems very complicated for me from other sites!

    Thanks all in advance.

    I don't have a link, but there is a help topic on it in the GAN documentation. I can tell you it does require them to be able to FTP the datafeed to you.

    You will need to set up arrangements to have the feed FTP'd to your site. GAN does not let you download the feeds.
    (Reason #23 I have only one GAN merchant)

    So, are you saying that I have to do this arrangement for each merchant?
    and how can I update the datafeed? repeat the same thing everytime?

    There is more complete info on GAN's site for you, but it will be automatic* when you set it up.
    *Not Automatic that it will not need attention, there have been naming and format issues from time to time, but it will get sent, anyway.

    Another pain in this business, and then google adword says if you advertise you should have more than few merchants on your website to be considered, that your website should not be restricted to few specific merchants and you should have more varieties!

    I wonder if they are trying to keep "many" people from joining this business or to help prevent abuse of the business or to make it complicated just to be complicated!


    Thank you for the replies.
