any missing items from a feed
are considered a delete; so, no.

 

currently, partial (incremental) feeds are not supported.

 

importantly, (deleted) items are tracked by id --

be certain that each item has a unique id value,

across all feeds, that never, ever, changes.

the issues associated with managing multiple feeds

is one reason why a best-practice is to use one feed,
containing all inventory items you wish to submit --
unless the uploaded inventory exceeds 100,000 items or so.

Depends.

Each file is uploaded and the data is extracted from that file. By submitting just a file with data that is changed across your entire account. there would be a conflict. One file with new data, and Old files with other data for the same products.

Make sure you edit the files in which the product changes need to take place. Make sure they are on your server so the "FTP" can grab the corrected data.

Make sense?
