    Do any of you use a Merchant XML Datafeed? If so, who is offers the XML feed? Any help would be appreciated.

    AFAIK it is, indeed, a very limited number. I also don't see much demand for it (see This Thread as a good example of that), conversely see how many use Associate Engine ™ from C3scripts to maximize the power of XML with out knowing it! I told Shawn two years ago to use it so affiliates could easily add OS products to their sites, niche or other wise as I tried to emphasize in the previous thread

    i think the problem with XML is that it needs to be somehow converted to html...

    for non-programers this is problematic... especially when the most common way to make the conversion is with javescript... it confused me so much I took a javascript class just to get unconfused....

    Jooe

    And, that's the bottom line because it's my2cents!

    Haiko,

    Thanks for the input. I have been researching your suggestion over the last few days. Just trying to get some other feedback.

    Amazon.com is the only one I know of. There are probably more, but I don't use any.

    Thanks. That is the type of answer I am looking for. Any others? Bueller?

    I'm using the Amazon.com data but drawing it into a template from simple searches. Helps when you have pages dedicated to subjects.
