    "Buy url" in datafeed?
    I have downloaded datafeed from Overstock. It does not have "buy url"- what is the best way to add the buy url (I'm using Excel) with our affiliate id without having to manually add to each seperate item.
    I'm lost, any help will be greatly appreciated!

    If you are using excel and as opposed to doing it manually, look up this excel function
    "Concatenate"
    http://www.techonthenet.com/excel/formulas/concat.php

    I am not sure how Overstock structure their buy or prod URL
    If it is www.overstock.com/IDxxxx and you know the product ID, this is what you can do:

    Cell A1 is IDxxxx
    Create cell A2 as www.overstock.com
    In A3, do this "=Concatenate(A1, A2)"

    I am sure that you get the concept (might or might not work)...but I would not suggest it and if you are populating your DB, I would try to automate it somehow but the Concatenate is a one time deal that will make life easier.

    p.s. Why not contact the overstock guys. I think they have an aff forum on their site and used to have some presence on ABW.

    All the best
