    Unhappy Why can't GAN vendors get their new datafeeds up properly
    It is just amazing that a vendor which has a perfectly good datafeed at GAN when moving to a new network screw it up or can't get it up quickly.

    for example New York & Co. says they have a datafeed in LS (they don't, I subscribed days ago still not on my ftp)
    Unique Vintage nice feed in GAN even has dress colors in avantlink they don't have the brands and style numbers of the products. In high end dresses particularly the brand is very important.
    Igigi has a datafeed in GAN, in pj their datafeed hasn't any products
    Jessica London doesn't have the IMAGEURL field in cj. Try and sell apparel without a picture. They don't have a working email address either but that is besides the point.

    Is creating a datafeed that hard. I can scrap a site and make my own feed in a few hours (or less). They have access to their own database, how come they can't make a datafeed in just a few hours, especially after they already created one for GAN?

    100% agree!

    Add Biotherm and Shu Uemera over at PJ to the list (no feed at all).

    Are the networks just not guiding the merchants through a proper transition?

    Not only is this GAN fiasco a make-work project, now we have to police datafeeds or end up with big holes in our site.

    I'm at the same point - ready to tell these merchants, their AMs/OPMs that they are ALL as worthless as boobs on a boar.

    LOL - I haven't heard that one in awhile.

    Thanks for the warning. I'll have to keep a watch when Popshops pulls some of these new datafeeds into their system.

    I will probably not promote a good 6 or 7 of their merchants from the GAN migration because the feeds just suck...
