    Dumb Question
    Hi folks,

    I am trying to request/get datafeeds from a number of Linkshare merchants but I haven't been able to find info on how to get started with this at Linkshare.com Do they call it something different (viz. Catalog at CJ // Web Services at Amazon)?? I assume there is probably something obvious here...hence my thread title!

    Thanks very much!

    Feeds are available through Linkshare's Merchandiser program.

    Found -- but is approval straightforward??
    Webworker -

    Thanks! I found it and just applied for the Merchandiser program. There is a 10-day or so wait -- do you (or anyone else) have any sense re. whether it is easy to get approved, set up, & such?? I am a 5-bar CJ Performer but I've probably made less than $100 total from Linkshare in the last year so I wondering if they will just blow my application off!!

    Thanks again.

    You can still get it, but there's a $250 fee without the sales. You could contact merchants you're dealing with to see if they have feeds available outside the program, some do.

    as opposed to going head on with merchandizer, why not get on programs with free data feed. It is free and tracking is done via Linkshare. I am sure that there is somebody providing a feed for each segment of the online industry.

    Off my head,
    outdoor - Sierra Trading Post (either free or they pay for you to take the feed)
    golf - gigagolf, golfballs.com
    Jewellry - mondera affiliates.mondera.com/
    home - overstock
    travel/vacation - FairfieldGetaway - shameless self promotion
    computers/electronics - tigerdirect (should have it, I have not verify it though)
    motorcycle - motosports.com and Harley (acct manager lurks on here)

    why pay when you can get it for free and you can also use these merchants as a way to build sales to reach the merchandizer
