    Question re FTP datafeeds vs "Download" option
    I'm adding more stores to a new(ish) site, and have applied to FTP access for all my new merchants. Since I have to wait for approval, I see there is a "Download CSV" option to use in the meantime.

    Will there be any difference between this file (per merchant) and the eventual Datafeed version?

    I have time this afternoon (and am rather antsy to get started!), but don't want to take the time to build scripts for a temporary file format when the final version will be different.

    Does anyone know if these files will be the same?

    Thanks

    Teezone;

    I'm not 100% certain, but the SAS feeds layout should be the same. SAS only shows one layout to my knowlage.

    Teezone,

    It is all the same information - script away.

    Thanks guys, for both your responses!

    I'm happily kicking off this new project now.

    If any merchant is looking for placement on a Gourmet site (and I haven't already applied!), drop me a PM..
