    Hi all,

    Just wanted to let you all know of another development in my continuing quest to provide better tools for affiliates.

    I created a datafeed file, which is available here:

    http://www.gigagolf.com/affiliates/d...d/gigagolf.txt

    For those of who you deal with datafeeds, it should be fairly simply to understand, however I'll be working on a small information page about what's included in the file that will be available via our Affiliates Page sometime this or next week.

    We don't typically update our products that often during the year, so nightly updates on your end won't be necessary. Maybe weekly or bi-weekly would make more sense at this time.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Does the feed only contain 110 products? Not complaining - just want to make sure I have the complete file.

    I asked Mark about this yesterday. He said that there are only 110 products--this is their entire inventory. So that's what I was told.

    Yep, only 110 products. We're supposed to be getting in some more clubs soon, but not sure when they'll be added to the site.

    If anyone would like some added functionality to the datafeed, I'm open to suggestions.

    Also forgot to mention, that's it looks like a great addition to have a product discount described in your feed. For example, some of the products have a percentage off with a discount code.

    Mark, if a product has a percentage off, is that already taken off of the price that is in your datafeed, or is it a percentage off the price in your datafeed?

    Thanks

    Maybe some large Image URLs as well as the smaller ones.

    It is the percentage off the price listed in the datafeed. It's basically a coupon for that product.

    If you're going to use the discount information, remember to display the coupon code, since it is not displayed on the product page, it's only on the home page.

    Also, display the retail price, don't display the price after the discount. Based upon the various options of the clubs, the price does fluctuate.

    perfectG,

    You can link to our larger images if you want, the format is this:

    600x500 image:
    <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">http://www.gigagolf.com/images/galleries/[ProductSKU]/[ProductSKU]_MX_01.jpg</pre>

    276x230 image:
    <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">http://www.gigagolf.com/images/galleries/[ProductSKU]/[ProductSKU]_PD_01.jpg</pre>

    Incidentally, product images go from 01 - 04, although about half the clubs have 4 unique images, which are basically different angles of the clubs.

    Accessories are:

    I updated the datafeed, with new prices.

    As far as updates go, I'd recommend grabbing it friday evening after 5 p.m. since the weekly specials will be updated then.
