The merchant feed provides detailed information on each active merchant, from delivery times to accepted methods of payment.
The feed contains only active merchants and as such can be used to remove invalid offers from your offer feed. For example, a merchant may remove all their offers in the middle of the day leaving you with a number of invalid offers in your offer feed. By checking the merchant file you’ll be able to see this change very quickly and remove any offers from the missing merchant in the offer feed.
