You have to have your product feed in order to use our service and to get your products listed at DFF. DFF only gathers data feed files from hundreds of Online Stores (merchants), we categorize and process the data together to create a usable and searchable database. We do not create merchant's product data feed.
There is no set up fee for any merchants that want to participate at [[http://www.datafeedfile.com DataFeedFile.com]]. However we reserve the right to use the [[http://www.datafeedfile.com/affiliate_faq.php#affiliate_faq_151 Shared Commission]] Click-through when displaying any merchant who does not pay DFF directly for this service. This method is called the ''[[http://www.datafeedfile.com/affiliate_faq.php#affiliate_faq_151 Shared Commission Plan]].''
If you do not want your product links or click-through being replaced using the [[http://www.datafeedfile.com/affiliate_faq.php#affiliate_faq_151 Shared Commission]] plan you can compensate [[http://www.datafeedfile.com DataFeedFile.com]] a small monthly service fee.
