    Free Data Feeds and Free RSS Feeds
    TheNerds.net Affiliate Marketing Program now features a FREE DATA FEED that is available to all of our publishers on Commission Junction. This free feed can be accessed one of two ways: FTP or HTTP. In addition we offer two types of data feed, available in two formats.

    The first feed, named "export", is our entire product catalog, including some products that do not have images (mainly cables, small connectors, etc). This feed contains over 50,000 products. This is available in both CSV and PIPE DELIMITED format.

    The second feed, named "export_filter", is only the products in our catalog that contain images. This feed contains over 23,000 products. It is also available in both CSV and PIPE DELIMITED format.

    VERY IMPORTANT: YOU MUST REPLACE THE "PID" IN THE LINKS WITH YOUR CJ PUBLISHER ID. THIS CAN BE DONE USING "FIND AND REPLACE".

    EXAMPLE
    FIND: -PID-
    REPLACE: -(YOUR PUBLISHER ID)-


    You can access these feeds using the information below.

    FTP Account Information:

    Address: affiliate.thenerds.net
    Username: cjaff
    Password: nerds

    HTTP Information:

    Full Export:

    Pipe Delimited: http://affiliate.thenerds.net/datafeed/cj/export.zip
    CSV: http://affiliate.thenerds.net/datafe...export_csv.zip

    Filtered Export (only products with images):

    Pipe Delimited: http://affiliate.thenerds.net/datafe...ort_filter.zip
    CSV: http://affiliate.thenerds.net/datafe...filter_csv.zip

    Want more? We've got it! We also feature two RSS FEEDS, one for our top sellers of the week, and one for our current coupons. The best part is, we've crafted a script to AUTOMATICALLY insert your PID into the links.

    Just replace the XXXXXX with your PID in the following links and plug them in to your favorite RSS reader or directly onto your site! All of the links will automactically contain your PID!

    Top Sellers RSS Feed: http://affiliate.thenerds.net/rss/cj/thegoods.asp?id=XXXXXX

    Coupons RSS Feed: http://affiliate.thenerds.net/rss/cj/coupons.asp?id=XXXXXX

    As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any comments, questions, or concerns you have.

    Thanks!

    I just found this thread and it still works. I run a shopping comparison site and will include this in our automated process to pick up the feed daily.

    jonlevine - thank you, its always very positive to see someone make the datafeed readily available. Its also extreemly helpful for people just starting to get off the ground (not really me any more :-)).

    Please make mention of it over at the free datafeed thread http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?p=741654 That list was helpful when I was getting going.

    Thank you for making the product feed available to us. I have been working on adding the feed to our automation. I downloaded yesterday's and today's feed and here are my results.

    The top row says that there are total of 26 (pipe delimited) fields for each product. In yesterday's feed, there were total of 239647 products in the file. Out of those there are 60273 products which either do not specify all fields or have additional fields specified.

    I have copy/pasted some of the invalid lines from today's feed. As you can see below, the first line only has 12 fields specified, the second line is empty, the third line only has 15 of 26 fields specified and on and on.

    This makes about 25% of the products from the feed useless.

    Jon is no longer managing The Nerds. This is a pretty old thread, so the datafeeds have most likely been changed.

    Also the feed does not have shipping cost - is 'custom5' field the shipping cost?
