    Buy.com Data Feed
    What is the difference or advantage/disadvantage of getting buy.com's datafeed directly from them than getting it thru CJ?

    Another thing, how often is their datafeed updated.

    Thank you.

    It's definitely better to get it from them because they update it daily. CJ will only send datafeeds once a week unless you specify otherwise. Even then I'm not sure if their datafeeds are updated daily. I'll take an external datafeed over a CJ datafeed any day.

    You can get it thru CJ or request it from their website.

    Talking Buy.com Datafeed - Going Direct
    Hi Buy.com Affiliates,

    Thanks for inquiring about our direct datafeed.

    Here are some advantages of going direct with Buy.com:

    *Consistent product files for ALL Buy.com products by category, in a single place.
    *Individual product links updated daily.
    *Huge selection of product groupings including Computers, Software, Electronics, Books, Movies, Music, Games, Sports, Toys and more!

    How It Works
    Buy.com will generate an updated product file containing inventory product information nightly. Buy.com will convert all product links into Commission Junction tracking URLs containing your affiliate PID. You can then retrieve your standardized product files via HTTP on a daily basis to ensure that your merchant links and product data are always up-to-date. You can choose from 4 different formats: Tab Delimited, CSV, Pipe Delimited or XML.

    To sign up, as mentioned above, just click here:
    http://www.buy.com/retail/affiliates...eed_signup.asp

    And I will get you set up within 48 business hours!

    Thanks for the feedback!
    Melissa
