Connexity Data Feed Specs

The Basics

What is a data feed?

A data feed is a file that contains all of your product information, such as product titles, URLs, image URLs, price, and other important pieces of information that we use to list your products on our sites.

What type of files do you accept?

Our preferred format is a tab delimited .txt file. We also support Tab, Pipe, Tilde or Comma delimited files and zip files are accepted.  We accept your Google/Bing formatted feeds as well!
