    I think you have the option of up to 5 merchants OR all the merchants you are signed up to in one feed. I recieve the feed with all my merchants included.

    What you get are all the products that the merchant has in their product catalog.

    When you go to "get links" and look up "Products" for a merchant, that is what you will get in the feed.

    Also, the screen you get in the popup with the fields listed where you would click on "Get html" to get the link data manually, well, those are the fields in the datafeed and those are the values you will get.

    This is a great way to check how good a merchants feed will be before joining. I always look at "Advertiser Category" as I find if that's been used correctly then it is easier to break a merchants feed up by, errrr category, for example.

    Unfortunatly far too many don't bother to give us values that helps to split a feed up. You need a way to do that with several thousand products for one merchant.

    There's usually a way using the keywords field for example, but it gets messier I find.

    Do a search and you will find your answers in *many* posts here.
    Summary of what you need:
    $10000 in sales to get it free.
    $250 if you don't make the above target.
    All merchants who have individual products listed in the CJ interface have feeds.

    )) edited to add((
    Search the CJ forum here as well as the datafeed forumn below.

    Xandman,

    We recently established the Laptops For Less datafeed at CJ to assist our affiliates. I started an ABestWeb topic which includes a full excerpt from CJ's support page dedicated to datafeed FAQs. You can check out this info at...

    Xandman,

    Any luck with the CJ Datafeeds?

    I thought you might like to know. Friday we made available our external feed. It is available to all current and new LaptopsForLess.com Affiliates free of charge.

    You can find details and access info at...

    Thanks, Paul. As a matter of fact, I saved the ABW post about your feed. I have a couple sites selling computers and plan to give your datafeed a try.
