    Question Walmart Datafeed Instock Status
    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to this forum but REALLY glad I finally found out where other affiliate publishers are hanging out!

    I've recently signed up for FTP access to the Linkshare datafeed for Walmart and have been able to retrieve the categorized feeds I want but I have a question about the values being used in the "In Stock" field.

    Most feeds from other advertisers say either "yes" or "InStock" in this field but the Walmart feed uses 3 different values: "W", "M", and "W_or_M"...

    Do any of you know what this means? I've contacted affiliates at walmart dot com but haven't heard back from them.

    Thanks!

    It's straight forward.
    W => Walmart
    M => Market Place
    W_or_M => both.
    Where's the Great Life of Affiliate Marketing Hiding?

    Thanks for the update Bob! I wasn't aware of the Market Place.

    Cheers!

    Yep. Keep an eye out for Market Place items - a lot of merchants are doing this crap now. They typically pay lower commissions on Market Place items - or none at all...
