Data Feeds
I don't get it

Hi,

I know merchants such as Animal Den have a datafeed, however when I look at their info on cj - all I see if links for banners etc - and only links to specific products.

I'm interested in in obtaining the datafeed of all their products.

How do you go about finding datafeeds or similar? Am I missing something in cj or do I have to contact the merchant directly?

thanks for any pointers
Wayne

Actually I just found a few merchants that provide datafeeds.

No my next question (sorry for the above spam):

Are most of the datafeeds just links to their products, or can you actually sell these, as use the merchant as a dropshipper - anyone?

They are just links to their products. Used to be your sales had to be over a certain amount, then you could get datafeeds from some merchants for no charge. It has been a long time since I have done that so things may have changed. Best thing would prob be to send cj an email and ask how you can get datafeeds.

You can get the product catalogs free if you use the cj web services - I've had problems with the web service speed and reliability (including one major disaster where I found it pulling up totally unrelated items from a merchant with whom I had NO relationship?!), but I've worked around those issues by only using the web services to periodically collect the data and load it into my local database.

Outside of Web Services, I think it is free to get access if you can generate 10K in sales per month in your CJ account as a whole or you can pay $200 if your current sales level is not that high.

Skibum is correct in my experience.

...and that $200 is a one-time setup fee, not recurring.
