New merchant support & confirmed home page

    Received the following invite as far as I can tell not yet much behind it but shows things to come. It also confirms that F is no part of G's home page.

    Dear Froogle Merchant,

    We'd like to tell you about some recent improvements to Froogle, designed
    to make it simpler for all merchants to get their products into Froogle
    and to make it easier for you to keep your product information
    up to date.

    The big story is the new Froogle Merchant Center, an online resource that
    provides merchants with essential tools they need to get their feeds live
    and to keep them current on Froogle. Improvements include:

    - Important information you need to participate, such as Froogle's Program
    - Instructions for creation and submission of data feeds
    - The ability to quickly confirm and check the status of a data feed
    upload (no need to contact the Froogle support team to handle this)

    With the recent inclusion of Froogle on the Google home page, there's
    never been a better time to start submitting your product data feed, to
    resume sending a feed, or even to refresh a current feed. And the new
    Merchant Center provides tools to speed the process.

    To get started, you'll have to create a new Google Accounts login by
    clicking on the following link. Please note that a Google Account login is
    different from the FTP username / password you've received from Froogle
    support. The FTP login is not valid for logging into the Froogle Merchant

    here is your invitation code .....

    By creating a Google Account to access the Froogle Merchant Center, you
    will gain a resource to get more insight into the status of your Froogle
    activities. Creating this new Google Account will not affect your current
    Froogle merchant status.

    Once you've signed up, you can return to the Froogle Merchant Center any
    time by accessing the following link:


    This page will soon be easily accessible from the Froogle main page.
    However, as we are currently still testing the site, please save this URL
    for immediate use, and forgive any initial bumpiness.

    We certainly welcome any feedback you may have and hope you enjoy the new
    Froogle Merchant Center site. Feel free to email us at
    any time, or simply reply to this message.

    Don't bother with this

    it adds nothing and is difficult to navigate with.

    I tried out the Froogle Merchant Center today and I agree with sarahk, it sucks :p . Since this is just the beta, hopefully they will improve it, but until then, don't bother.

    I know it's sort of a bit of a joke but I hope all of you send this to support as well. Again for a FREE source I find them extremly helpfull thus I send them a lot of observations, complaints, improvements for free as well ....
    (Yes I know they have lots of PHD's but what does a PHD know about the real world?)
