Sure, simply make sure the product id's are the same to avoid loss of valuable historic ranking.

Make sure that when you change it happens instantly, otherwise you will be flagged as submitting duplicate content.

However when you change due to timing issues, you will still have a warning saying duplicate id's, as long as you have ensure there is only 1 active feed. Than you don't have to worry.


But I do recommend making a choice, rather than moving back and forth between methods. Research the pros and cons before committing.


hope it helps
