What is a trade feed?
A trade feed is the process whereby the products listed on your website are automatically sent to bidorbuy (via an XML file) and listed on bidorbuy, as they are on your website. The products sent from your website will display the same product information: price, quantity, pictures and descriptions are displayed on bidorbuy exactly as they are on your own website. When stock is sold on your own website, the quantity will update on bidorbuy as well.
