    Angry Unreasonable Delays for New Merchant Feeds?
    Many of my key merchants have recently changed or are in the process of changing networks. As their feeds through their old networks are removed, I have been awaiting new feeds through their new networks.

    I learned today from a very good source that Popshops is in the process of upgrading the platform upon which their Shopbuilder system is based, and that for some, if not all, merchants, there will be no new feeds until late in the year.

    This is a very serious problem and can only lead to more and more reliance on the competition in place of Popshops.

    I heard that too and am not happy with their reason of not adding new feeds...

    Sorry for not updating this thread before now, but all of the feeds about which I was concerned did get updated much more quickly than I had feared it would take. The specific merchants who changed networks had their new feeds through their new networks up and active, as I remember, by late February or early March.

    Does "upgrading their platform" mean that Popshops may not be table-based anymore so they will adapt better to all devices?

    Not having any issues with new merchants being added, other than they don't understand what PopShops is. Besides sending an email request to merchants at PS, I also send an email to the AM with a brief explanation & a link to the PS merchant FAQ page.
