Connecting Retailers and Commerce Service Providers

ChannelAdvisor wants to help connect retailers and commerce service providers.  If your firm services retailers and has a need for product data, visit ChannelAdvisor.com/partners to find out more about becoming a Flex Feeds partner.  You may also contact our Partnership team there.  

Becoming a Flex Feeds partner enables you to receive product inventory data from our clients that select to send you data.  Typically, we provide daily ftp delivery of tab-delimited product data files, but we offer many other options for delivery method, frequency, and file formats.  

Typical product data available from retailers may include these attributes below.  Our platform allows clients to easily transform their data attributes to your firm's unique requirements, so it is not necessary to match these attribute names.
