Microsoft Cancels Live Product Upload

Microsoft canceled their free Live Product Upload, for those of you who don't know what the service did, it was similar to the Google Shopping Engine. As an online merchant I had very high hopes for this program because of the runaway success of Google's Program. It is being replaced by the Cashback program which Microsoft launched last year in a partnership with Ebay and quickly spread to the rest of the web. It offers a percentage back to they buyer's Paypal account if and only when a sale is made.
