PSE stands for Price Search Engine. DFF PSE allows you to search by keyword, store, brand, category, etc...
PSE results can be filtered by price range and sorted by price, best match, merchant name, etc...
PSE supports logical OR search options and support word negation by using (-) minus in front of a specific keyword.

==JSON / XML Output Explanation==
When using JSON / XML search results are returned in raw data format (either XML structure / JSON format converted to native array).
The output always contain a **statistic** section, **merchantlist**, **categorylist**, **pricelist** and most importantly the **productlist**.
All of the sections are self explanatory except for productlist, where there you must understand the logic behind DFF's product database organization.
Basically, DFF product database have 2 kind of product: (1) DFF SKU products also known as corenum, (2) Merchant Product also known as prdtid.
DFF SKU (aka corenum) is a unique number assigned for a particular uniquely identified product. We assign a unique number starting from 100 and greater. DFF will not reuse SKU #. Each SKU # always represent a unique product. DFF SKU# assigned for particular product will always be assigned to that product (will not ever change). Most of the time once a SKU # has been assigned, there are usually more than 1 merchant selling that particular product, therefore it is a comparable product amongst multiple merchants. When displaying PSE search results, you should check if corenum > 0, if it is >0 means it is a valid SKUed product and therefore it will have min - max price, sellercount (how many merchant you have selected sells that product) and list of merchants numbers (mernum) selling that product. Once you have identified a particular search result as a SKUed product the click-through from that one row / listing should be directed to DFF's PPC (product price comparison) where a list of merchants along with their prices, availability, rating, etc will be shown.
If DFF SKU (corenum) is NOT >0 (is not greater than zero) then it is not a valid SKUed product. Instead of relying on DFF SKU / corenum you should focus on prdtid. Prdtid is a unique identifier for a single unique merchant product. Unlike DFF SKU / corenum, prdtid will change every 24 - 48 hours as we re-import / refresh data from merchants data feed. Therefore you should NOT rely on the min - max price, sellercount, nor will it have a list of merchants. When corenum is NOT > 0 it means the product is a single merchant product. It is not comparable against multiple stores and click-through from this search result should NOT be directed to PPC (product price comparison) script. Instead the shopper should be sent directly to the Store's web site via DFF product click script. A DFF product click script will need at least two required parameters which are prdtid and affid. Here is an example of a DFF product click URL:
http://www.datafeedfile.com/dff_prdtclick.php?affid=1001&prdtid=8160405480
There may be other parameters passed behind the URL above, but affid and prdtid are the basic requirement. DFF product click will redirect traffic from your site to DFF, then to the affiliate network, then to the merchant's web site. This script will also perform the [[http://www.datafeedfile.com/affiliate_faq.php#affiliate_faq_151 4th click shared commission]] affiliate ID substitution.

1) The third way, using [[dffDFFML DFFML]] + [[dffJSON JSON]], is currently still under construction.
Sometimes no matter how much flexibility we provide to control output and design, they are just never enough to satisfy the pickiest web designer / programmer. If you are that picky, we hope you are willing to take up the challenge of having full control which means you will have direct access to the data via [[dffXML XML]] and [[dffJSON JSON]]. Having raw data means you will be responsible solely to compose your own page layout and even the navigation and flow of your site. We recommend [[dffXML XML]] and [[dffJSON JSON]] integration for medium to advance programmers only (or if you know a good programmer).
