In this detailed guide we’ll explain exactly how to make a sneaker bot and why it may not be as easy as it looks.
Are you a beginner or intermediate botter that’s looking to boost your botting profits to another level?
Then what I’m about to share with you is important. It’s even more important than Cook Groups.
It’s a botting course called BTW Academy that is designed to take your botting game to the next level with over 40 in-depth videos that covers every aspect of botting.
You can start by signing up with your email for it here.
Some of the most successful sneaker developers can make over 6-figures a year just by developing and maintaining updates with a sneaker bot, with some of the most successful developers like Cypher (the head developer of NikeShoeBot) or Lucas (CEO and developer of Cybersole). New bots seem to be created every other week but few can make a profit, here is what you need to make a successful sneaker bot.
You’ll be using a lot of proxies for testing of your bot, so you’ll need a reliable pool of low priced proxies.
BTWProxy.io (€3/$3.4/GB) is probably the best proxy option for your sneaker bot testing as they have the lowest prices and work well on most sites.
It would be a lie to say that creating a bot to buy sneakers is not complicated and hard to make because it is hard to make a program to beat any anti-bot system and still check-out really fast.
If you still want to devote the many hours it takes into your programming to make a sneaker bot here are the steps you need to take.
Decide which language you want to program in:
If you already know any existing programming language then I suggest you utilize your knowledge of that language and just build onto it.
Developing the bot. How to make it.
Generally, you will need to figure out how to solve the different anti-bot systems that you would be facing. Whether it is Supreme’s Pooky, Akamai or Shopify Anti-Bot you will need to learn it and how to beat it.
You are probably going to need a program that can Figure out how to automatically login (if needed for sites like Undefeated), You need to find the productID or keywords, You are then going to need to figure out how to add the product with it’s desired size and/or color to cart and then how to input payment details, shipping, etc. Also, you are going to need to figure out how to submit the order. This is all an extensive amount of work, but; if you do it right it can pay off greatly.
There are already existing resources to help you out with this program. If you are programming in Ruby and Python you can use mechanize, to help you out, you can follow redirects, fill forms, etc. Also, there are existing projects on GitHub and lots of developers on twitter that would love more work if you are looking for a partner. Here is some code I wrote for Adidas.com before it utilized Akamai.
If you want to make a CLI (command line) sneaker bot than that is fine, but; the majority of botters will not want to use a CLI bot so I suggest developing a UI. The good news is that there are a lot more UI/UX developers for bots than people who are willing to code them.
GUI is a whole different beast, you have to have different knowledge of programming to make a GUI, more front-end oriented. If you want to have a simple GUI like Sneakercopter than you can probably make it yourself with some additional knowledge through codeacademy or udemy.
Although if you want to be like Cybersole or Soul AIO and incorporate a fancy GUI with an app that will take extensive time. If I were to code a basic GUI (in Java) it would probably look like this:
Yet again this is extremely basic, you’re going to need a lot of front-end experience to make a sneaker bot GUI. I would like to recommend Daniel Scott’s UI/UX class where he teaches you UX design in Adobe XD, it also includes app UI development which is very helpful.
Once you finally develop a bot with a UI you need to market it and promote it, there are many amazing bots out there that has little to no marketing so people do not use it. I suggest opening a twitter account and showcasing big success (people will not buy a bot with no success) and then hosting twitter giveaways with cook groups and other bot or captcha tools.
Maybe start in a closed beta where you have to invite “x” amount of people to the discord to get the bot for a week. Regardless, you will need to get your brand out there. The Sneaker bot world is tougher than most, so I wish you the best of luck.
