Bing Shopping Will Be Free - BIG NEWS! 6/15/2010

According to industry insiders, After July 30th, Bing Shopping (not necessarily the official name) becomes a free shopping comparison engine much like Google Product Search. Merchants who are currently using BING-Cashback will be asked to supply their full product inventory and no longer exclude products after July 30.

Merchants not already on BING's system should be on the lookout for news about signing up. We expect "Bing Shopping" will eventually have a portal of sorts to submit data feeds. In the meantime, it is likely Bing will accept a feed similar in format to Google Merchant Center feeds to make it easy for merchants to get on board.
