Which product feeds do you use? I've been using Google Merchant Center and I'm trying to get started with Shopping.com and Shopzilla.

we use or have used pricegabber, nextag, amazon product ads, shopzilla, bing shopping.
Im right now looking into a site called godatafeed, they take one feed from you and submit to the sites you select and the monthly cost is very reasonable.

Question for you chaps, do you use these sites because its cheaper than adwords to your own sites
better conversions ?
More options ?
My interest lies in development

we use them in addition to adwords. We base our use on cost of sale. For us, if we can get a shopping engine running at 10% or below for cost of sale, we stick with it. Some of these product feed sites just simply have mass quantity of users, amazon product ads for example, the cost of sale is for us is only just under 7% and the amount of orders we gain from there is pretty impressive.

Which ones have you found to be the best? Google Shopping is the only one I'm getting any sort of results from. I'm not using Amazon Product Ads since they're a competitor and can't be trusted not to use your data against you even with Product Ads:
I use to use google, until they changed it up, at that point the cost of doing business there was over my cost per sale line. For me pricegrabber, nextag and amazon product ads. Ive heard the horror stories about amazon, but ive been selling there for years with no issues.

I have been using Google Merchant since last 3 years and very happy with the conversion i am getting. Infact the paid module is not giving good conversion at very lower cost.
I have tried pricegraber, nextag and other but not happy with the result. Google is best !

I think google can be good depending on competitors, since its now a bid platform if you have deep pocket competitors, its not cost effective.
