Dealtime is a comparison tool that makes it easy to find the right product for a reasonable price. Dealtime focuses on finding great deals for sale to ensure you always find the best deals from thousands of online stores.
Product data fields of Shopping .com and DealTime are fully compatible with the Magento 2 product data parameters. Applying those parameters to Magento 2 products generates a Product Feed. However, Magento 2 now does not support creating feeds that’s why we need to use the Product Feed Module. Moreover, Shopping .com and DealTime are compatible with eBay which uses .txt, .csv, .xls, .xlsx, .xml file formats to upload feeds.
For Shopping .com: Access to www.shopping.com > Choose
Join Our Merchant Program to register the Ebay account or login it if you have one already.
For DealTime: Access to
www.dealtime.com, then choose Advertise with us to login to dealtime and continue to register Ebay account as in the shopping .com
Since Magento 2 does not support to generate product feed, in this article, we introduce the Product Feed Module by Mageplaza.
