    Datafeeds info wanted
    I need merchants offering datafeeds/database for the following sectors:
    Automotive/Cars (new, used, parts...), Financial Trading (Stocks, Derivatives, Investment Education...), Apple stuff (anything around Apple computers)..
    Preferably it has to have individual items with prices (in case of goods of course) and links to the merchants only for the final "BUY" part.
    It doesn't need to be part of CJ or any network.
    I already use Amazon and OS.

    Could anyone help here?

    Thank you Carsten for the very fast and nice reply.

    If anyone could add more - please do so.

    P.S I already checked DriveWerks.com. It seems their links are all to THEIR pages, not individual products I could manipulate.

    Product manipulation??? Common links to their pages?? Tricking customers and spoofing the merchant's ecatalog huge investments for some no brand name, probably foreigner with a $1.98 looking web site, is pushing the trust envelope. Put up your Tax ID#, credit report and banking info to get consideration for special non-inventory reseller status.

    Come again? Despite your obvious reputation here, I resent the tone.

    What I am talking about is just a regular datafeed to my own database, with all the product details, prices and possible reviews.
    Think of Amazon or Overstock feeds. A customer should go to the merchant only in the last phase, if he decides to buy.

    DriveWerk's datafeed, according to their sample: http://partners.drivewerks.com/DW_tools7.htm fails at the point of product description, where they provide a link to their landing page instead of description itself.
    The other db fields such as "Make", "Model", etc are OK.
    I could use "Product Name" here for a description, but it's just not enough content.
    Besides they provide no prices at all.

    Hope I made myself more clear.

    Go whine about that one to Chris Sanderson. If anything needs fixing up, he'll see to it. He's got the patience of a saint - he'd have to, to be able to deal with me.

    Not got around to mail yet been on holiday for a few days but will check it out, there are some issues with the parts feed that make it less flexible than everyone would like.

    I 've got the mail back. Thank you for your prompt reply(ies) Chris.

    As for the feed, I hope you will manage to incorporate prices into it soon, as that peace of data is IMO almost a must.
    I will start with your accessories and I hope in a mutually profitable relationship.

    Thanks everyone, I would appreciate more tips regarding new/used cars, but only the ones with a datafeed.
