Build a Datafeed to get your prices up on Wine-Searcher

Datafeed

Datafeeds are the most efficient way for us to collect merchants' wine lists. A datafeed is a structured, web-based document. You can easily create one to list your current, in-stock wine inventory.

Step 1: Create a web page

create a web page (XML or delimited text), with a URL such as:

  • https://www.mydomaine.com/winesearcherfeed.xml
  • https://www.mydomaine.com/winesearcherfeed.txt.

Please do not add password protection.

Step 2: Add inventory

add your current, up-to-date inventory, with each line item containing:

  • Wine Name (max. 160 chars)
  • Price (e.g. $12.34)
  • Vintage (e.g. 2005)
  • Bottle/Unit Size (max. 20 chars)
  • Deep link URL (max. 255 chars)

Wine Name: It's best to stipulate wine color and grape variety (where applicable) in the wine name. Beers, ciders and spirits can be included on datafeeds.

Price: Please use '.' not ',' in prices ($12.34 vs. $12,34). There's no need to use currency symbols - we'll already have your currency registered in our system.

Vintage: Where possible, please use a 4-character format, as we list wines from the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.

Bottle/Unit size: Please use consistent bottle size descriptions throughout your list. Examples of bottle/unit sizes are '75cl', '150cl', 'Magnum', '12 x 75cl bottles', 'Case of 6 Magnums'.

Deep link: Deep links are URL's pointing directly to a product's 'selling' page on your website. Deep links must be written in full, and begin "http://".

File Format Information

XML

  • A XML file in LATIN1 (ISO-8859-1) or UTF-8 encoding.
  • Field names should be meaningful (Wine Name, Price, Vintage etc.)

Delimited Text

  • Use LATIN1, UTF-8 or ASCII, with pipe ( | ) delimiters
  • The first line is the header, and defines the field names (Wine Name, Price, Vintage etc.)
  • Use one line per wine
  • Terminate lines with either a newline or carriage return. Do not insert newlines, carriage returns, HTML tags, tabs or escape sequences within any of the fields.

Examples: XML datafeed and delimited text datafeed.
