Products feed

The product's feed contains information about products. It is the base for using the Owlcure App. The feed is used for web personalizer, e-mail marketing, retargeting, and any other part of the app.

We use a similar format like other apps. If you currently have a different product feed, feel free to contact us and discuss options.
