Retailers make offers and affords out there of their affiliate packages every single day. In addition they make product feeds out there of their affiliate networks. FMTC is thought for getting into the void and being a pacesetter in its skill to deal with massive quantities of knowledge throughout a number of retailers and a number of networks to make the knowledge out there in a standardized method for everybody to make use of. That’s the reason we began the FMTC Product Feed, also called a Purchasing Feed or a Product Catalog.


The FMTC Product Feed

The Product feed permits our shoppers to entry and monetize merchandise from our companions. For retailers who comply with greatest practices by updating and finishing their Product Feed frequently, FMTC has taken the steps to drag the knowledge out there. As mentioned in a earlier Tech Nook article, we make the most of the ability of an API to distribute this knowledge to our shoppers.

Our Product Feed API permits shoppers to entry these merchandise programmatically. This API has two endpoints that mean you can course of this knowledge (detailed beneath). The information that you simply obtain has already been normalized and standardized by FMTC to make the method simpler for you. The principle endpoint that our customers will use is getProducts.


A extra detailed description of the API endpoints:


Returns an inventory of merchandise out of your chosen retailers. You could have the choice to restrict this listing in some ways together with Retailers, Manufacturers, and/or Classes. Since our feed updates as soon as a day, shoppers usually run cron (scheduled) jobs day by day to get any product updates. There are extra superior options to this endpoint which are described in our Documentation.


Returns your listing of chosen retailers, as chosen by you in your FMTC account. This listing of retailers is totally different from the Deal Feed, so be sure you are trying on the appropriate web page when choosing your Product Feed retailers. Shoppers usually name this endpoint earlier than the getProducts endpoint to drag merchandise on a service provider foundation; nevertheless, that is an non-compulsory step.
