This post is kind of a heads up, plus I am hoping the good people over at Salehoo can find out more information for us.
From what I understand StrawberryNet is updating their product feeds for affiliates. They have updated their website with in the last year and quite a bit changed as far as how they organize and sort their products. Now I am very glad they are doing this, the currently feed is a mess and has some serious issues. But it also is a pain because I had to put a lot of work into trying to get their current feed to work and I have been pushing for months for information. I have been working on this site for a very long time, waiting for info from them so I can finish, and now I put it on hold because a lot of changes might be coming that I am going to have to go back and redo.
Isabelle over at StrawberryNet has been very patient with me and I am thankful, and she does her best to help us. And I know she has to wait for information from the developers. But this information is critical for someone running a website and these kinds of changes will cause people a lot of work. They need to inform their affiliates if this kind of thing is happening. And some heads up would be good so people can plan for these changes.
If you are building a website now, be aware some of the category info in the feeds could be changing a lot soon (my guess to match more what the new site is showing now). If you have an existing you need to be ready if it does change and might cause you some work.
If anyone has more information on how the updates over at strawberrynet is going for affiliates I would love to hear it, and if Salehoo could reach out and get information for us, I would be very thankful.
