Can I use 2 data feeds:1 for Mobile site 1 for desktop

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I want to use mobile destination URLs for mobile PLAs. Right now we only have 1 feed that shows the desktop URLs. Our platform does not enable us to add the mobile_URL to the same data feed as the desktop URL for each product.

 

Am I able to have a 2nd data feed with all the same products that uses the mobile_URL value?

thanks!

adding the mobile_link attribute to the existing data-feed is
the approved, appropriate, method to add a mobile-optimized
version of a landing-page.

unfortunately, no; adding a second feed with the same items --
just to add another attribute or value, such as for mobile_link --
would cause double-listings, which is a policy violation and
is grounds for a disapproval or suspension, at any time.

generally, there should be only one registered feed for all items --
unless the inventory size is rather large (over 100,000 items or so).

that said, using a mobile_link is not required and contacting
whoever maintains the platform for the original feed, to add
the optional mobile_link attribute, is the best likely course --
especially since there have been other recent updates to
the rules, policies, and specifications that may need to be
addressed as well.

The only option is to get your platform to generate the extra mobile_link field.
If however the mobile link and normal link are identical, than a mobile link does not need to be provided.
If your mobile links is pointing to a different locations, such as a subdomain or folder than I recommend you develop your platform to have this facility.
