Product Feed File Upload: What is it?
When the delivery method is “file upload” is it still automated.. or do u have to go and click “upload” like a live URL always stays up to date?
Not really. File upload means uploading a csv or txt files. The feed is updated within the site and our plugin cannot push the updates to merchants
However, ExportFeed allows you to keep your product feed file updated on your server with the Automatic Feed Update Schedule Interval even for the merchants which allow the File Upload method only.
Direct Products Upload: What is it?
If your eCommerce is connected to the merchant like Amazon using the API connection provided by ExportFeed plugin or app, then you can select the product list and directly upload them to the merchant. This adds the benefit of regularly updating your products on the marketplaces unlike the file upload method.
