How do I get my products up on Shopbot?
Once you enter your details on our Get Started page, you will be shortly contacted by a Shopbot representative to guide you step-by-step on how to get your products online. To get your products online, we only need 2 things: your data feed, as well as a bit of credit in your account. It’s that simple.
Is my business eligible to be on Shopbot?
We require all businesses that sign up on Shopbot to be able to ship to the country in which products will be listed, as well as accept the local currency of that country.
Which payment methods do you accept?
While we accept all major methods of payment, we recommend our partners credit their accounts by credit card. This is the simplest and most efficient method to ensuring that your products get online quickly and stay there.
How much does Shopbot cost?
We offer some of the most competitive prices and some of the highest traffic in the industry, with consistently high returns on investment. We also offer a number of flexible pricing and payment options, such as a capped monthly budget and automatic payment.
Some Technical Information
What is a data feed?
A data feed is a document that gives Shopbot the information it needs to integrate your products onto our website. Generally, you will be required to give us a list of your products, along with their descriptions, manufacturer part numbers, image URLs, and categories. We typically work with either CSV or XML file formats and strongly recommend creating an automatic data feed, as creating one manually can be time-consuming, prone to errors, and requires frequent updating. If you are already sending a data feed to another provider, we should be able to integrate it here at Shopbot with no problem.
If I can’t make a feed, can I still sign up with Shopbot?
If you are having difficulty creating an automatic data feed, our tech team may be able to crawl your website to get the necessary details. While we have developed a web crawling technology that enables us to extract this information from your website, we do not recommend this option as it can be inaccurate. But no worries, our team would be more than happy to get you started by helping you create your feeds automatically. Contact us for more details.

Yes, definitely. Shopbot’s technology provides you with reporting to help you get the most out of our services.
