    Post Are there any Datafeeds?
    Are there any datafeeds available through Performics and if so how would I get them for my merchants?

    ok thanks for the link webworker, i see you just got the email, how difficult is it to get up and running to download the feeds, is it similar to Linkshare where you need to run it through telnet etc?

    Also how do you know if a particular merchant has a feed?

    First time requesting datafeed
    I have requested a datafeed for the first time about 3 days ago. I have gotten no feed or response.
    I have also set up an ftp with user and pw for the first time.
    If there was a problem uploading or whatever will I be contacted?
    Is there somewhere I can check the status of the requested feed?

    Thanks
    Tami

    Jamie, that account issue** may be straightened out, and I have received the Target feed (which I find unusable, as are the text links I need), but have received none of the other 5 I requested early this past week.

    I'll send a follow-up email on it.

    **BTW, that account issue is why I've never before, to date, used Performics merchants. Which is probably a topic for a thread of its own.

    Hello,

    If you need specific links for Target and are not finding the data feed useful, the Target program manager can build links for you to use. Please send me an email.

    As for the account issue, it is very important to know how many accounts you have with Performics and the usernames associated with each. When information is requested, we use your email address to identify your account unless other information is provided from you suck as pubid. If you don't need multiple accounts, we can consolidate them.

    Please contact me for further discussion. I will have someone contact you regarding the feeds.

    Thank you,

    Jamie,

    I have received Target's datafeed via ftp, not that i know what to do with it. I have always (for years) added the Target product links individually.
    I thought maybe I could search and extract product links from it, but I think it is more complex than that. For one, I do not find my publisher ID anywhere. Do I need to input that somewhere?

    What a pain all this is! Target and I are loosing money as I speak!

    Will I be getting the feeds automatically now? How do I cancel?

    Thanks,
    Tami

    Hello Tami,

    That is how many affiliates use the feed as a simple way to grab pre-built product links. Your publisher ID is built into the links in the feed. You will not see your ID and you do not need to add it. You will receive a new feed every time we receive one. If you want to cancel your feed, please send an email to AffiliateATDoubleclick.com.

    Thank you,

    DoubleClick Performics was closed on Thanksgiving and the Friday following. Therefore, it should take some extra time.

    Thank you.

    I have also requested datafeed access on 12/18/2007 to be sent to my e-mail, then on 1/7 requested access to a FTP account I setup. Still no response. Maybe the datafeed approver is still on vacation?

    Thanks for any help!

    Waiting for feed
    Hi,

    I applied for a couple of feeds on 1/28 and asked a few questions about them, and received a response with a sample table. I a couple more questions, but haven't heard back yet.
    1) What's the difference between the product link and the buy link?
    2) How long will it take before I start receiving the feeds to my ftp site?

    I actually applied for three feeds, but I now see that one of the affiliates is lacking in information, and isn't on the list of affiliates anymore, though they're in my account. However, I don't really need them if I can get the feed for West Marine and Brylane Kitchen.
