    Hi David,

    How often do you recommend having people update or refresh their datafeeds to ensure they have current merchant data?

    Some recommend daily, some bi-weekly some monthly? What do you think is the safest/best?

    Do any of the merchants REQUIRE affiliates to update feeds at certain intervals to ensure there aren't a lot of sites out there with bad links/inventory/pricing?

    Update your websites as often as you see fit. Depending upon how much time you want to spend on your websites you might update them once a month or once every 3 months or more. It's up to you. If you're going to update them very infrequently, then I suggest not including prices since some merchants may contact you if they find out that you're showing outdated lower prices.
