1. Automated Shopping Feeds
HEROweb's automated feed service can save you a lot of time and ongoing work. We set up a data template based on the requirements of the shopping engine or other service that you want to send your data to. Then we create a method for you to automatically generate your data feed when you need it.
The Automated Feed Service is for you if:
- You want a streamlined and low-cost way to generate a data file that is properly formatted.
- You have too many products to manually track in a spreadsheet.
- You have some level of technical proficiency and the desire to maintain and manage your own shopping feed accounts.
Some examples of shopping engines that utilize feeds are:
- Google Products
- Amazon Ads
- Selling on Amazon
- ... and there are other merchandising channels that will accept your product data and list it.
