Facts from DFF Affiliate FAQ you should know: has created a full featured price comparison shopping engine that took 5 experience programmers 1.5 years to create. Not to mention the hundreds of human labor hours spent identifying and categorizing products. has a total of approximately 25 million products as of today (8/28/2006). About 2 million has been identified and normalized with UPC / ISBN, have proper description and product pictures.

In order for an affiliate to re-create DFF tool and provide a similar shopping functionality, the affiliate would need at least 6 high-end servers, 2 years development time and hundreds of hours organizing product information. Not to mention the daily routine updates.

We believe re-inventing the wheel is not a time well spent for affiliates while there are many more important things to do such as marketing your web site. Besides's PHP scripts and tools are SEO friendly.
