    Datafeed Creation
    I have looked over the datafeed posts I could find but none of them explain how to actually create a datafeed.
    If someone could point me in the right direction I would like to create a datafeed myself, however I have not one single clue how to do that.
    I'm also completely clueless about the technical jargon regarding it. Need simple to understand, written in crayon instructions for me.

    Hello,

    Kolimbo offers help with this and allows you to post your datafeed for free on their network, since you use MyAP.

    When you log in to your merchant account on Kolimbo, you'll find a Datafeeds link in the left nav. Click on that and it should give you some basic instructions. You can also contact Jeff Doak. He handled all of my datafeed submissions and updates.

    Word to the wise: When you create your datafeed, make sure it has categories. Also, take care to keep it updated regularly and be sure to test it personally before you upload it for all to use.

    Best of luck to you.

    I certainly agree with you that we have to practically use technical jargons in our conversation here to be able to express and deliver our thoughts more vividly and with tremendous clarity among our newbie.

    There's nothing even better than being able to 'express and be understood' within the parameters of universal understanding and knowledge.

    So I call Dave at Kowabunga yesterday and tell him, "I need someone to hold my hand while I try to do this datafeed thing."
    Two minutes later I'm cursing under my breath at how easy it is and how idiotic I feel.
    Excuse me while I go regroup at the Coffee Machine...
