On March 11th, Yahoo! will be discontinuing the automatic Yahoo! Product Submit from Yahoo! Store Manager. Yahoo! has now partnered with PriceGrabber to handle the population of Yahoo! Shopping in the future.
Yahoo! Shopping will continue as always to be a valuable channel for reaching customers with your products. The difference will be in how you, the merchant, get your product information into Yahoo! Shopping.
