The value of a classified website to visitors is measured by a number of ads posted on it at any given time. Many startup classified services are struggling to attract their first loyal customers while a number of high-ranked classified websites are out there offering their listings for re-posting. All you need is a handy tool to import the data into your website.
By popular demand, we have created a third party feed import module for our new v.6.0 software product release.
The new Feed Import module integrates the capability to tap into third party data sources, convert their ads into your website's format and automatically monitors listings for duplicates and removes orphan ads.
Using this module is intuitively easy. Start by adding a new feed from the Feed Manager section of your admin panel. The next step is to configure feed parameters such as feed name, description, import format (XML, CSV, XLS) and other information in corresponding fields.
You should not worry about field name mismatch of source data and your website's listing fields. You can mark and match fields manually.
The module works with multiple sources of different data types. All you need to do is add new feeds, or import offline files that your feed provider pumps into your hosting account.
In addition, you can set up periodic updates using cron and ensure that your listings are periodically synchronized on your website with third party sources. You just have to make sure your server is capable of handling the amount of listings you want to pump in with your Feed Import module.
We have added a couple of awesome features to properly synchronize listings between a remote source and your website. These options for automatic update compare listings and either leave them as-is, modify them with new info, or remove if no longer available at the source.
Please be advised that GoDaddy hosting is not entirely compatible with this addon due to insufficient database management tools available, and may require additional server configuration and/or addon customization (no CPanel tools are provided by GD).
Assistance with server configuration or addon customization for GD customers may be provided for additional cost, but we do not guarantee its operation due to server-side issues beyond our control.
Every addon that we are offering is designed for seamless operation ONLY with the default website. We do not guarantee that the addon will work with websites that have code/template modifications made by yourself, us, or any third party due to possible compatibility issues. We would be happy to try and resolve such an incompatiblity for additional cost as a customization. For any inquiries on the above, please contact our Sales team.
The Feed Import module is not a part of default package of the WorksForWeb classifieds software. The cost of being able to fill your website with ads from the sources of your choice is just $100. Buy your Feed Import Addon now!

"Great job with v.5! Quick bugfix release speed. So far, having played with it for a while, think iAuto is well worth the money I paid for the Standard. The Special Edition had looked nice to start with, but after doing some math I figured the Special is a money drain. Minuscule savings up front and then 99 bucks a year just for upgrades, the unbranding sold separately, etc. Makes a lot more sense to get the all-inclusive Standard version. As far as features and capabilities, iAuto has most of what I needed to start my project. Absolutely love the credits and all the options that credits can buy like highlight, Sold sign, automatic renewal… Their support guys worked hard to win me while I was trying their product and keep me after I did buy them. Will I recommend iAuto? Absolutely!"
"After searching high and low for a few days your script is the best of the bunch, with a few more features it would be SO much better than anything else..."
"Thank you very much (for support). That's what I need, I trust products and your services."
