Why do we need sneaker bots?
It is simple economics, the market forces of demand and supply. Famous sneakers brands like Nike, Adidas and the likes control their demand by restricting the supply of sneakers. Most of the sneakers launched are very limited in number, and it is extremely hard to get a single pair, let alone multiple pairs. People have to wait in long queues for in-store purchases and still may not get to buy a pair.
For online purchases, during increased traffic, after you add a sneaker to the cart, you will be redirected to a queue which is something you absolutely do not want. A lot of sneaker brands use the Shopify website, and you can find sneaker bots specifically for Shopify.
If you are buying in-store, there obviously isn’t anything you can do other than waiting; however, you can cheat while buying online through sneaker bots. Although using a sneaker bot is not exactly cheating, there is an ongoing ethical dilemma around the usage. Do not worry; there are no legal ramifications for using a sneaker bot as it is a recent advent. Although in the US other forms of botting have been penalized, sneaker bots operate in the grey.
By using sneaker bots, you can try to buy not one but multiple pairs of hyped-up sneakers. And as the resale market of limited-edition sneakers is huge, you can earn a handsome amount by selling your pairs for resale. This is why we need sneaker bots.
How does sneaker bot work?
Bots work through step by step tasks set in motion to complete the job. One task would be one checkout. So, the more shoes you want to check out, the more tasks you have to create for your bot. You will find a task creation menu on your bot. In the task creation menu, you can find the stores the bot supports and select your preference. After selecting the store, you will have to fill out a few other options like size, keywords, account and profile etc. Once you have successfully created a task, your job is done. All you have to do is press start on the task, and the sneaker bot will automatically check out the pair of sneakers in a matter of seconds. The whole point of sneaker bots is to give you speed so that you can cop as many sneakers as possible before the store runs out of them. Most bots come with a lot of features that can help you get ahead in the game.
There are also a few other essentials that you should know about, like a good system that will ensure your optimal bot’s performance. As websites will not allow one person to checkout multiple pairs, you will also need different profiles with addresses, contact information and billing information. You can also find these accounts for sale over the internet, but they can be costly. Lastly, proxies are essential for sneaker botting. Proxies mask the IP address of your system and give you a different IP. This conceals your identity, and each time your bot visits the website, the website will register you as a new customer rather than the same one.
