Getting the affilinet feeds

Downloading the affilinet feeds requires a key/password, but the link created when clicking on the poduct search->product lists (url) gives the wrong password  resulting in a 'wrong credentials'.


The CSV links on this page look like :

http://productdata.download.affili.net/affilinet_products_899_494090.csv?auth=KEY

Go to account->technical settings->csv settings->CSV product data. (url). One the bottom you will find a password ( or generate one), replace KEY the with this one. Or use the link just above the password to download a list of al productfeeds.

put the producturl in the 'feed url' of the feed configuration select the correct class ( most likely CSV ; ") and click apply.

Login into affilinet and visit the page : techSettingsProducts

at the bottom you should find the password. Enter this password in the dialogbox in the administrator or save in the preferences.

Curl and redirect issue.

When using curl combined with some security settings ( safe_mode and/or open_baseir) you might have problems downloading the feed: affilnet is redirecting the feeds and your server settings do not allow this. Please copy and paste the url into your webbrowser, and copy the RESULTING url back.

just a note

Affilinet sucks big time on their feeds ( at least affilinet-NL), it's a big encoding mess. While most networks got it sorted out, affilinet is still in kindergarden.
