How to track which products are out of stock or going offline soon

If you want lists of products recently gone offline, or put back in stock, see our Product Status Log, more notes below.

Here is a list of our main RSS feeds:
If you are only interested in following one category, every category has its own RSS feed, which you can find in the address bar of your browser when in the category.
For example in the category Android Phones the RSS feed is http://rss.chinavasion.com/android-phones.xml

Product Status Log
Similar to our Data Lists described above, we also currently offer 2 different Google Spreadsheets for:
- A list of all the products that are currently in stock. Therefore products NOT on this list are out of stock.
- A log showing which products ran out and closed on each day, going back several weeks, as well as which products have come back online after being restocked.

We are currently offering a Beta test of category datafeeds to our awesome Gold and Platinum level Members. If you are at that level of awesomeness, talk to your sales rep. The datafeed includes shipping prices as well as everything else you need (hopefully everything!). This is not available to normal customers. Chinavasion does not make available any shipping tables.
We will soon offer a useful newsletter explaining for dropshippers where you can get instant shop-builder systems using Chinavasion datafeeds without having to do the custom programming yourself.
If you are a Chinavasion Web Referral Affiliate in our Affiliates Program, we make available a full datafeed for that purpose. Our Affiliates feed is pre-loadedinto various instant shop/offer builder software, which you can find out about after joining the program.
If you are sourcing from us and selling Chinavasion products as your business, on your own website or on Amazon, eBay etc, you can use Chinavasion's product images. See our Fair Use Policy here. To use pictures, you should download /save the image and re-upload it wherever you are using it, on your website hosting or eBay etc. Don't hot link using the original Chinavasion image URL as it is not nice and your images might stop working if we see it.
Because they are awesome, Gold and Platinum level Chinavasion members can get a ZIP file of product images from each product page on our site. If you are a Gold or Platinum customer, check it out or ask your sales rep for help.
