In order to successfully set up Shopzilla, follow these directions to configure it inside your DotFeed account. Before proceeding you should see some indication of activity. Date ----- #### items have been refreshed and ready for pickup.This can take up to 24hrs.
Now that your channel is refreshed and your feed file has been built we
can move on to configuring your data feed at Shopzilla's end!
Shopzilla first asks that you fund the account. Your feed will not be processed until your merchant account is funded.
Click the Manage Listings tab.
Then Submit and Update Your Product Listings Datafeed.
Click Submit My Feed.
Select the Radio Button for Use my own FTP / HTTP / HTTPS location
Fill in the fields as follows;

Then click Next.
You will have a chance to verify your settings, click Validate to
continue. If you see a problem, clicking validate will error out and
from there you will have an option to go back and Edit.
If everything goes just right you should see a success message; SUCCESS! Your Product Data Feed has been updated.
NOTE: If it has not been at least 12 hours since you configured the channel in DotFeed, you will see an error similar to;

Review the Shopzilla categories before submitting your feed to make sure
that you are using their taxonomy of categories correctly. The Feed
Specs that you've already downloaded can provide more information also.
