Data feed requirements

Skinflint regularly updates the products listed by merchants. We are happy to provide individual solutions for you!
There are two possibilities to update your price file:

  • We download your datafeed file from a URL or FTP location you specify and update your prices every 10 minutes.
  • Alternatively, we can retrieve the data directly from your online store.
