Datafeed alternative

Hi. I have a site that runs on datafeeds. Two of my merchants no longer provide a datafeed, and of course they were my main merchants!! Is there any way I can create a datafeed? Perhaps by scraping (of which I know nothing about!)

Open to all ideas!

Hi, I have not used this service myself but I have heard good things about datafeedr.com. I believe it is a paid service but maybe it can help you. Good luck!

Thanks but that's no good for me. All they appear to do is use the merchants' datafeeds to build their own database that you can access. They do not, as far as I can see, create a merchant feed, so if a merchant doesn't have one they are not included in their API. And for that they charge a large monthly figure!
