Crawl and Auto_Submit Feed via FTP

Several weeks ago we released a new “automagic” distribution method – FTP.  Many affiliate networks need you to submit your product datafeeds for your affiliate program via FTP.  In the past, if you had a feed, you would have to do this manually through an FTP client such as FileZilla.  Not anymore.  You no longer need to worry about distributing your feeds.  We’ll take care of that for you.  When you setup your account, we’ll ask you if you’d like to distribute your feed via ftp and your ftp credentions:

  • FTP host
  • FTP username
  • FTP password
  • FTP directory and
  • FTP port

That gets assigned to your account.  Each time the Chloe Feed Assembler creates your datafeed, it will then send that new product datafeed via ftp to your affiliate network.  You then receive an email that it was sent and usually most networks will send you an email that it was completed.

Easy as 1, 2, 3!
