This project requires developing an xml product datafeed to be added to a URL and fetched daily by our affiliate program, Webgains. Our website runs on Bigcommerce. The requirements for the datefeed are below:
We recognise that manually uploading your datafeed every time it is updated is rather time consuming. Therefore Webgains recommends each merchant to upload their datafeed to a space on your servers so we can fetch it automatically. This will keep your product data (e.g., prices, availability) up to date. We can collect it via HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP. If necessary, please provide us with the relevant user name and password. Depending on how often you update your own product list, you can choose to have it fetched:
Weekly (you choose which day of the week)
Monthly (you choose which day of the month)
Please Note: When updating your current datafeed it will be automatically available for your affiliates to use if there are no new categories to map. If there are new categories, they must be mapped by Webgains. This service is included as part of the general maintenance of your program. Also, please ensure that the frequency of Webgains fetching your file is the same as the frequency the file is updated on your [url removed, login to view] default, Webgains retrieves data feeds on a daily basis, unless otherwise specified within your account.
In order for affiliates to place your products in context on their sites, categorising products is essential. To achieve this, simply include the categorisation in your product file and we will do the rest for you. Categorisation should reflect the product type, not your site's marketing categories. For example, it is best to avoid categories such as: “sale”. “Christmas gifts”, “for her”, etc.
Mandatory datafeed fields
Webgains requires your file to contain the following fields:
Product ID A unique product identification number
Name The product name (e.g. PlayStation 3)
Deeplink The URL where the product is located on your website (e.g. [url removed, login to view])
Category The type of product (e.g. Electronic Games > Consoles)
Price The price of the product on your website (e.g. 399.99). Please do not include a currency symbol (such as ‘£’ or ‘$’) in this field.
Image URL The URL where your products image is located (e.g. [url removed, login to view])
Description The description of your product can be as long as you like as your affiliates will set a maximum character length for this field on their website. Please avoid using HTML in this field.
However, it is strongly recommended that you provide much more information than this. The more information that you provide your affiliates with, the more likely your affiliates will get the best use out of using your products which in turn means more traffic and sales to your website. Webgains recommends the following extra fields to be included in the datafeed:
Additional datafeed fields
Best sellers This field will enable the top affiliates to promote the best selling products. This field should be an integer and list the top products starting from one and be based on the last 2 weeks sales volume or similar. It is important that products not included in the best sellers are left blank and not set to 0
Extra Price Field An alternative price field for wholesale prices or specials
Thumbnail Image URL A common thumbnail size is a 90 pixel base denomination (e.g. [url removed, login to view])
Brand/Manufacturer The brand of the product (e.g. Sony)
Reference Number A product reference number (if applicable)
Promotions Any monthly or seasonal specials that affiliates can use for promotions
Delivery time The standard delivery time for the product
Delivery cost The standard delivery cost for the product
