Looks like the feed format is rather simple (http://advertising.microsoft.com/WWD...eedExample.pdf , and mind the required fields http://advertising.microsoft.com/bing-merchant-faqs#5 ). You can get the base file for your feed by exporting your products from Ecwid control panel, Catalog → Products, selecting the Tab as a delimiter. Then you would need to edit that feed file according to the guidelines given:
1. Rename it to bingshopping.txt
2. Rename columns:
3. Make sure the Description field is single line, all formatting stripped and no tab characters inside it
4. Make sure the line endings (MS guide calls it just "format") are in DOS/Windows format, i.e. \r\n (any modern text editor beyond Windows' Notepad allows to change that)
5. Check overall compliance to http://advertising.microsoft.com/bing-merchant-faqs#5

After these steps submit the feed to Bing as described here http://advertising.microsoft.com/bing-merchant-faqs#6

Just me, or does this seem overly complicated? Why is this not an option in the $35 a month premium I'm paying to have in my merchant feed area??
