How to integrate Skinflint with Magento 2

What is Skinflint

Skinflint is an ecommerce website and price comparison service providing customers with hardware, software, games and video/camera products. Since the product data parameters in this site and Magento 2 are fully compatible, store’ s admin can apply these parameters to their product data, which generates Product Feed. For the reason that Magento 2 now does not support feed generating, we need to use the added Product Feed extension by Mageplaza.
