Mostly, you use affiliate network feed for tracking your commission. The feed from the network are sometimes unreliable, inconsistent or bad. For this you have to spend time, energy, resources and money to improve the bad contents which otherwise makes the content on your website bad. Every network has different format of feeds, CSV | XML | JSON. There are various attributes or fields and the values may not be consistent with the values of another feed from same network. For instance, the network feed may have sizes in range S - XL where as another feed may list all sizes available eg. S - M - L - XL. In some case, sizes may be delimited with comma, pipe or any other delimiter. Some time the required information may not be useful or may not be present at all. Missing Image URL, Missing categories, duplicate records are some of common problems. In short, there are various issues with the network feed.

Retailer often submit their product catalogue to affiliate network for tracking and distributing their inventory across various publishing channels. Every publisher has their own feed specification that one single feed format may not cater.
