    Walmart's Data feed
    Hello All,

    First post - glad to be here. Now, on to my desperate cry for help.

    I recently signed up and was approved as a Walmart affiliate. In their affiliate page, they mention that affiliates have "access to the data feed of our entire product line". However, for the life of me, I can't find it. Their welcome email doesn't mention it, I can't find anything on LS's site, and (of course) I have had no replies from affiliates @ walmart.com.

    So, this may be a dumb question, but where on earth do you access this data feed?

    Thanks for your help.

    faction.

    Faction,
    In order to get the Wal-Mart datafeeds, you will need to be signed up for Merchandiser. The Merchandiser program is designed for affiliates that can support a database of product links that are updated on a daily basis.

    There is a one-time fee of $250 to cover set-up and ongoing maintenance of the Merchandiser account. Affiliates that have been active in the LinkShare network for at least three months and have generated at least 50 orders in the most recent calendar month will have the fee waived.

    There is a complete description of Merchandiser on the Affiliate Resource Center. When you are logged into your account click on "Resource Center" it is at the top of your screen below your username. In the Merchandiser section, you will find a form to complete to get the Merchandiser feeds.

    For more information on Merchandiser email merchandiser-a@linkshare.com.

    How large is the datafeed table supposed to be? As a text file it seems to be 553MB, but after loading into a MySQL table it's only about half that size with 211,678 rows. Is this how it should be?

    My first post as well. Very happy to have found this board!!!

    We have also been approved as a Walmart affiliate for several months and we are signed up for Merchandiser. We have requested secondary approval and we are still not receiving the data feeds. What can I do?

    Thanks very much,

    Brooke
