The History of DFF
It started in January 2005, when our first project, PriceComparison
.com was launched with only a handful of merchants using datafeed files from Linkshare and CJ. With 5 other dedicated partners we have worked tirelessly to create the first price comparison shopping engine based on the affiliate industry. By the end of 2005 we have surpassed our goal of 1000+ merchants integration, 20 million merchant products and 1.5+ million normalized products. PriceComparison
.com is only our first step.
In February 2006, we began development of our second step, DataFeedFile
.com. The goal of DFF is to distribute the usage of our price comparison shopping tool and start creating a community of price comparison web site owners with a common goal. By the end of March 2006 DFF was released as alpha, then beta in June 2006 and launched on July 15, 2006.
.com has performed most of the initial setup, routine daily chores and painful programming integration steps necessary in order to use data feed files from hundreds of merchants.
code to install.
More advanced tools such as XML data delivery and using the XML output into dynamic websites using PHP / JSP / ASP are available complete with examples.
.com's technology is a refreshing new tool allowing more impact from affiliates and will help our affiliate industry grow stronger. Though DFF is not the first affiliate tool provider in the industry, but we believe we are the best and most advanced.
