    Best way to Use XML feeds for Coupon Sites
    I'm a newbie here, and just starting a coupon site. I've been wondering what is the best way to use feeds for a coupon site. Does anyone already do this? If so, can you explain how it works?

    Thanks.

    I've noticed that some affiliates have a large amount of merchants/products that they sell. And, huge databases of coupon offers are updated daily. It seems like a monumental task for a human to manually update the info.

    Is there some kind of web services that is used. Like XML feeds, or something?
    And, if so....how is it used?

    Nope, it's just a monumental manual process. There's some automation that can be done, but there's still an incredible amount of manual work required to run a good coupon site.
