    Would Somebody Please explain the benefits of datafeeds to merchants
    There are many merchants I would love to feature on my sites but there are no datafeeds! I want products not banners. Merchants without datafeeds please get them. Isn't the benefits explained to these merchants, I mean you can see which ones have them by simply looking at the epc, those with them have a epc of greater than 0 and those without them have 0.

    Is there anything SAS can do to help merchants and make getting datafeeds easier?

    It's not really a specific merchant, theres many that just don't seem to want to expand into that area.
    It seems like they aren't aware of what datafeeds are and do, how they help, or maybe just not how to do the process of making one.
    One example is a merchat that I do like does have a datafeed but with very few products and it hasn't been updated in quite a while, I emailed them asking when they would update it and they told me they don't have a datafeed, but they do have one just not a functional one.

    greeneyes14j,

    I realize that there may be many, but in this case the only way I can contact them is one-by-one to work on these things. We do have a document that merchants are given at the time of activation that describes some "Best practices" such as datafeeds, auto-deposit, etc... but it is the merchant who first has to decide that they want to read our version of "best practices" before we can really help them.
    Thanks,

    One feed I have up that I looked into updating doesn't seem to have a feed any more. This was Exalted Fountains and they have some very nice stuff with high commissions.

    I do believe that "greeneyes14j" is right! We need a thread where affiliates express their thoughts about "datafeed merchants" vs "no-datafeed merchants"...

    I don't go out of my way to promote datafeed merchants.

    My reason, there are too many spam datafeed pages already.

    Datafeeds
    It would be nice to teach affiliates how to place datafeeds on their site.Believe me it would be a big help.I have quite a few stores that have approved datafeeds for me to put on my site but I still haven't figured out how to properly put them on my site.

    'spam datafeed sites' are not the only reason to use datafeeds - I have no use for banners and ONLY use datafeed merchants - import them all into a MS Sql server database and use full text indexing to display relevant products from a variety of merchants.
