    Question How to filter feeds?



    Hi,

    Is it possible to filter feeds? I only want to display sale items.

    Thanks

    It's definitely possible, but possibly not at the point of downloading the feed from an affiliate network. Different merchants will identify sale items in different ways. E.g. some will have the items in a 'sale' category. Other's will have a 'was' price. Some will give you no indication at all that an item is on sale, so you would have to compare the price now with the price previously to know whether it is on sale.

    Overall, it is not a simple task, even though it should be.

    Yup, you'll need to open the feed in excel and hope there is a category or sub category detailing sale / clearance / end of line. Filter and cut.

    Usually the network have a special feed / download option only for coupons / deals. Google, shareasale, linkshare have them. This can help you as you only take the feed and have only discounted products there.
