    Datafeeed Generation & Management Recommendations?
    Hi Affiliate Managers,

    I've got a question for you.... If you have a merchant that wants to start submitting a regularly updated datafeed to one of the major affiliate networks, what are the lower cost software/service options for getting them started?

    I'm particularly interested in solutions that provide frequent datafeed updates that contain feed item attributes that go beyond the standard: Product Name, Product Price, Product Image

    I (think) I'm asking about services that help a merchant get their data from their e-commerce store platforms into their affiliate network. This would be services such as: GoDatafeed.com

    I'm trying to build a help page for my merchants and I don't know much about this side of the business because I'm an affiliate. Any information and/or recommendations are greatly appreciated.

    GoDataFeed would've been my first pick as well, followed by SingleFeed probably. Personally I'd go with GDF.

    Then there are full service companies like ChannelAdvisor who manage everything including listing products on other CSEs and marketplaces.

    I use GoDatafeed.com as a bridge until the merchant can get their feed tweeked for the network. Seems to be the biggest hurtle. Hearing that some networks are considering taking Google feeds as is since most merchants have that anyway.

    What affiliate networks currently accept Google Shopping Feeds as is? This could be another part of my "help" page.

    Checking with the network as it may not have been ready for prime time.

    IR can accept data feeds from advertisers formatted for Googlebase, Shopping.com or Shopzilla (txt and xml versions). We normalize these versions and provide both the original version and a shopping.com version to partners.

    LMK if there are any further questions.
