Connexity (Formerly Shopzilla)

Connexity Site Guide


Connexity's CPC Marketplace Solutions direct buyers to your site when they’re looking for information on search engines or browsing shopping content. The Connexity Network connects over 30 million highly qualified shoppers every month with over 150 million products from thousands of retailers. The products you submit in your data feed are displayed within their network of content publishers as well as their owned and operated sites such as Bizrate, Shopzilla, PriceGrabber & Become. Retailers can reach and touch customers when they’re looking for inspiration, comparing prices or ready to buy.

Other Information


Site Updates – New products should appear on site within 12-24 hours from feed delivery time.

MPN, UPC or EAN – Highly recommended that you provide UPC/GTIN in the feed for all categories.

Product Level Bidding – Connexity will allow you to set bids at the product level as well as for all Subcategories. Subcategory bids will only apply when your offer does not have a product bid.

  • Target CPC bid option allows bids in any amount from $0.05 and $1.25.
  • Minimum bid is $0.05. Bids from $0.01 - $0.04 will be charged at $0.05 and $0 bids will increase to your Subcategory or Single Rate bid amount.
  • Single Rate Smart Pricing will not change.
  • Zero bids will be assigned to the subcategory bid or Single Rate $4.
    • Please note: Connexity will continue to send products with a zero bid in the feed unless you apply the ChannelAdvisor "Filter Zero Bid" rule to the Shopzilla/Connexity template
    • If you would rather remove products that you previously had as zero bid from the feed you should apply the "Filter Zero Bid" rule to the Shopzilla/Connexity template.

Promotional Messages – Can be entered directly through the Connexity Business Services portal.

Integrating Click and Cost Data – Connexity passes us cost data. To receive this data you will need to authorise them to pass it to us. This requires you to send a fax (or scanned document with a signature). Please contact your Account Manager to organise.

Product Matching – Connexity can run a report to clarify the health of a feed. If a feed isn't performing well, ask your Account Manager for a match report.
