    We have decided to post our own data feed IN ADDITION to offering it on ShareASale, GoldenCAN, and DataFeedFile. As always, this feed is 100% FREE!

    Because of limitations on SAS, we are only allowed to update the feed there every other day. Therefore, we have decided to offer our feed directly from our site, either via HTTP or FTP. This feed will be updated Monday thru Friday and available any time after 12 noon EST.

    The feed is available as a CSV file or as a pipe ( | ) delimited text file.

    NOTE: THE LINKS IN THIS "RAW" FEED MUST BE CHANGED TO SHAREASALE-STYLE BEFORE USE.


    To download this feed via HTTP, please click on the link(s) below:

    CSV: http://affiliate.thenerds.net/datafeed/export_csv.zip

    Pipe delimited: http://affiliate.thenerds.net/datafeed/export.zip

    For access via FTP:

    affiliate.thenerds.net
    Username: affy
    Password: nerds

    This is just another way that we are trying to arm our affiliates with the best tools available!

    Sincerely,

    Jon

    Hey Jon,

    I think I told you once that some people used to call me the datafeed queen because I was such a strong proponent and because of some articles I've written. Well I think we should crown you the datafeed king for offering so many great options. Affiliates should love having all these choices!

    Does this mean I'm going to have to start planning a coronation? Woo-hoo! Everyone's invited! Hmm, what are we going to serve? Well, Burger King, of course! :p

    Thanks Linda. I'm just trying to make the affiliates happy by giving them every tool available. If you or anyone can think of something else that's needed or missing, don't be shy!

    Just as an update on this thread:

    We have completed work on the revised data feed and it is now available. This second feed contains ONLY items that contain images and full categorization. This feed will be the one that is exported to SAS and available via GoldenCAN and DataFeedFile. I would give it until Monday or so for the new feed to be available via SAS (they only update every other day), but it can be downloaded right now from our site.

    The link for the new feed is:

    Pipe ( | ) delimited:

    http://affiliate.thenerds.net/datafeed/export_filter.zip

    CSV:

    http://affiliate.thenerds.net/datafeed/export_filter_csv.zip

    If you would like to access either of these file via FTP, you can do so by logging into:

    affiliate.thenerds.net
    username: affy
    password: nerds

    We are still continuing to offer our "raw" data feed, which contains everything we sell regardless of if they contain images or categorization. They can be downloaded from:

    CSV: http://affiliate.thenerds.net/datafeed/export_csv.zip

    Pipe delimited: http://affiliate.thenerds.net/datafeed/export.zip

    Or accessed via FTP using the same info as above.

    It is our goal to eventually have just one feed that contains images and categories for ALL of our products, and believe me, we're working hard on it. For now, hopefully this will solve some issues that affiliates have been experiencing.

    Thanks.
