Shopify is one of the most popular shopping platforms for independent business owners or people who just want to sell products online. One of its most useful attributes is the ability to embed Shopify listings in other sites.
FeedWind takes advantage of this by allowing its users to display listings in RSS feeds, with custom images and headlines that allow for unique displays. Users can use product-related feeds on different sites to lead potential customers to their Shopify items or use Shopify’s blogs to create dynamic advertisements for featured products.
Shopify content can be displayed using the ‘blog’ or ‘collection’ formats. This expands the list of available URL types that can be used with FeedWind from Shopify, which can be custom or original for both formats. URL formats from Shopify should appear as such:
Original domain: https://storename.myshopify.com/blog/blogname.atom
Original domain: https://storename.myshopify.com/collections/collectionname.atom
