Description:

This module retrieves all available advertising content for a given product in a Merchant's datafeed.
 
The potential content to be returned includes:

  • Product Details - All available information from the respective Merchant datafeed, such as name, price, imagery, etc.
  • Ads/Videos - All ads/videos that have been tagged by the Merchant as related/relevant to this particular product (or the brand name or category of this product) are returned. Additionally, ALL text coupon ads for the Merchant are included in the results as well.
  • Related Products - Using historical sales information from the Merchant in question, we perform a lookup of products that customers frequently purchase in tandem with the requested product. All information from the Merchant's datafeed on these related products is returned with your request.

There are several ways to identify what product you want content returned for:

  • First, you can specify a merchant Id and a product SKU: click for an example.
  • Second, you could be more precise and supply the exact datafeed Id (since some Merchants have multiple datafeeds) along with the product SKU: click for an example.
  • Lastly, you could supply an AvantLink product-specific click-through URL in place of any individual Merchant/datafeed/SKU parameters. That URL value will then be parsed to retrieve all of the necessary product identification: click for an example.
