RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based data format that is used to distribute information online. This means that your customers can subscribe to your RSS feeds and be notified of new products and promotions. RSS is a great way to let your customers know about new products available in your store. RSS Feeds can also be used to publish your product information on shopping aggregation sites.
The software that is used to read an RSS feed is called a feed reader. People use feed readers to subscribe to headlines, blogs, podcasts, and much more. Google Reader is just one of the many feed readers which are available online for free.
Once enabled, any new additions to products, specials, categories, and coupons in your store will be automatically syndicated to the subscribers of each feed.
