Bot Questions and Answer by MREY (NJSNEAKS Preach)

Question 1: Proxy quantity versus quality:  on footsites, preferred 20 proxies pinging 150-300ms, or 2 proxies pinging <20 ms? (edited) Answer: Each task is another chance at yeezy that being said I think anything above 300 ms is pushing it. Anything in the 100-200 range is pretty good (2-300 is ok) Below 100 if you can get those that’s where it’s at . Rule of thumb on proxies to task always is 1:1   Question 2: What servers do you use/ recommend?  is it totally necessary Answer: Haha there are some rumours around of me having some super fast server that no one else has truth is I use sneaker server 110 edition and probably going to set up a Ec2 this week and get a blazing down the line shout out to whoever got us that blazing discount. 1gb port is plenty fast no need for anything above IMO (you are only as fast as your proxies are)   Question 3: In a bot, if you have multiple cards. Can your billing address be the same for multiple cards and shipping address be different? Answer: This question I probably get asked the most out of any other or some variation of it. From my experience Footsites normally don’t care as long as the order is on a different email or just different order in general. That being said, I’ve had villa ship me 2 pairs in one order same goes for Footsites. Truth is if the site wants to go through each order and scan for doubles they can cancel it I try to keep shipping and billing the same I might change the address a little bit like let’s say : I would say grove st in one ,And grove street in another I think the bigger the site the less likely they gonna scan each individual order. Some sites everything has to be diff such as Yeezy Supply (even the phone number don’t forget that) Avoid using + or . trick Gmails if possible as well thats an easy ban across the board. But again they can cancel if they want. I’ve used mike and Michael, Floor 1 and floor 2, There is no concrete answers and the more unique each one is the less likely they will cancel.   Question 4: Do you run multiple bots in parallel?  If so, have you found specific strengths/weaknesses between the big three? (bnb, anb, ss) Answer:  I use them all Soleslayer I will say though has been catching my attention lately in terms of consistency on Footsites. Each bot has their purpose : Slayer covers 4 sites so they can stay up to date with the sites latest coding. Anb and bnb each cover what like 20? I run BNB the most because it’s the quickest for me to set up  at this point and I can open multiple instances I separate each site , so if I need to do a quick edit on size link or whatever I can.   Question 5 : How much RAM do SS & ANB consume? does this depend heavily on the amount of tasks running? Answer:  The amount of tasks would determine how much processing power you would need so no real way to quantify that. I do how ever notice that running keywords on ANB is very heavy on the server if you have a server try to keep it running at i would say less then 80% of capacity. Do a test run before Yeezys , if your server starts to crawl because all these bots are multithreaded it will hurt your ability to cook.   Question 6: What are some hourly servers recommended? Does both proxy and servers in the same location have its advantages? Answer: Majority people here use ec2 , so ec2 or you could go softlayer as well the shorter the distance from server to proxy to end site the better that being said with connections as fast as they are sometimes you’ll see exceptions to the rule. Best thing you could do for yourself is find a proxy provider like YPP or Blazing and take advantage of placing your proxies where they perform best with your server. In my experience even though in theory all the proxy providers data centres should be pretty similar there not. Question 7:  When do you start running a bot? 30 seconds before release time? Answer: If you do 30 seconds before release, might as well go back to sleep cause you’re taking an L. For these yeezy im probably going to start most sites 30-45 mins before you need to get to the point where the bot is trying to ATC if you are stuck where servers are already crashed. Question 8: Do you re-use the same proxies for different credit cards on the same website? Also tied to that question, how many proxies do you normally buy?   Answer: It’s really up to you but 1:1 golden role for hard releases … live by it ,thats KEY! As an example I had 100 ypp proxies for flu game releases and probably 60 random ones. I probably had in excess of 80 carts on my fast ones vs like 5 on the slow ones. (oh BONUS i slot load my proxies on BNB since i run multiple instances lol)   Question 10 : If we use 1 proxy for a bot can we use that same proxy for another bot? Answer: If  you run it on another bot its just another task and thats breaking the golden rule so in short you can but you shouldn’t.

Proxy / Server Preach By Warren
In the end, it’s a numbers game, the more proxies you have the more attempts you get at the purchase. Of course if you go big, you are bound to hit. Some people do 50, some do 100, some do 1000, some do more   If you are doing manual, you are attempting just once so that’s why bots help, they automate the process of a ton of attempts all at once.   Soleslayer lets you do tasks, so for example, I have 1 checkout profile, i can run 5 tasks on it, meaning it runs that profile on 5 instances simultaneously so you are hitting the site with 5 attempts at a time with 1 checkout profile. if one of those 5 hit, the bot stops 5 tasks meaning you can do 5 accounts with 1 task each, or 1 acc with 5 tasks and each tasks has 1:1 proxy. (I think the recommended for sole slayer is 1 account to 5 tasks)   More attempts = Higher chance   Let’s say you have a 0.1% chance per attempt, you increase your attempts, your percentage goes up. That’s the basic idea of botting with proxies : LOTS OF ATTEMPTS!   The reason you do 1:1 is if you do 2:1 you slow down that one proxy. Soleslayer you can assign 1 account to 5 tasks (that’s 1 account using 5 proxies to checkout) Soleslayer goes by tasks per proxy.   Servers:   You can run bots on your own pc or servers, some people get servers because their own computer can’t handle the bot or some of these bots are not mac compatible, so you get a windows server (they need .NET which is a microsoft/windows thing). Servers also help for people with bad internet and reduce ping since you can get 1gb up/down on servers easily that is not accessible to most people’s homes and getting a server close to the Footsites datacenter reduces ping/latency, Soleslayer is multithreaded so more threads/cores on your pc the better (meaning, servers are powerful and solelslayer will utilize their power)   Question: How much different CC/Shipping info is advised?   Answer: Depends on the site on CC/Shipping , every sites policy is different   Question: Do you do the proxy near to server near to footsites servers?   Answer: Having servers and proxies close to the footsite datacenter is the best way to minimize ping/latency. It is definitely better for increasing your chances , lower ping is ideal.

Adidas Wishlist Jig (By palacekicks)

It basically manipulates the wishlist function on Adidas websites and lets you add any shoe that has its stock loaded to your wishlist, even if its behind splash or not currently up for sale.
This method worked wherever there was a wishlist button on Adidas websites, which means product pages, suggestions, etc.
As of 10/16 adidas/us updated their product pages:
And as of now none of the wishlist buttons on the new product pages can be jigged the same way as the video method.
So the updated protection against wishlist jig hasn’t hit the normal display page yet:
But as I don’t have the coding expertise to say if it’s an actual security feature or website change that won’t happen to the display page I would advise people to add upcoming shoes to their wishlist in case its implemented on the display page.

One of the first things that you have to understand is that not every shoe is able to be sold for major profit. Off the top of my head, the only shoes that are guaranteed to make you profit off ridiculous resell prices are Yeezy’s, some Supreme shoe collaborations, limited Adidas Consortium releases and some Nike Draw releases. If the shoe you are looking to resell does not fall under one of these categories, then you need to prepare yourself mentally for profiting only $40$70 a shoe. This is often the case for most Jordan releases. However, due to the massive market demand, a profit in that range is almost guaranteed and so buying any amount of Jordan’s in this day and age is like a very strong investment. Because of this major demand, resellers are able to do things like what is pictured below with very little risk: As the above pictures depict, people who are interested in making money often buy up as many pairs as they can. In the case of the first picture, there are 46 pairs of Jordan 12 French Blue shoes. Taking the lowest possible amount you are willing to profit at about $40, that would come out to nearly $1840 profit. Yes, you will have $8740 of charges on all of your cards combined, but if placed at market value, the shoes would sell very quickly due to the market demand and the fact that they sold out in minutes online. Now take into account that Jordan often releases a ‘hyped’ release/colorway at least once a month, that gives plenty of opportunity to make some good money. Just to see the numbers played out, lets say every month you bought 15 pairs of Jordans to resell, and you make $40 profit on each pair. In the span of a year, that would mean you profited $7200 in just Jordans that year, or $600 a release. Keep in mind, this is a low profit compared to what we really want to accomplish. Obviously some releases sell for much more, you could be pushing more than 15 pairs a month and this is also a conservative number. An example of a release that sold for a bit more than typical Jordan resell prices would be the Master 12 release in February of 2016. According to StockX, an online sneaker stock market, the average deadstock price of a pair of Master 12’s is around $368! Retail was $190, and so after fees and shipping, a total profit of about over $100 per pair is very reasonable. This is assuming shipping would cost $15 and a high fee of 10% is charged on the sale of the shoe depending on the site it was sold on. Just to save you some math, 15 pairs of Master 12’s could have easily netted you $1500 assuming you sold for $100 profit on each, again, a low estimate. Now, taking the figure we calculated previously, the $7200. Yes, that may seem like a lot, but we can do better. This figure doesn’t include the limited releases, nor the resell money that you can make on clothing as well. Both of these additions can raise that yearly profit past the $20k($20,000) mark. I have seen many reseller’s eclipse the $30k mark and above. Now, you aren’t going to be pulling in $30k your first year, let’s not get ahead of ourselves here, but you can certainly start somewhere where you are making very good money and build up to that $30k and even higher past that. Just to give you a quick demonstration of how selling a very limited sneaker such as the Yeezy 750 could net you major profit, watch some of these numbers I’m about to throw at you. The Yeezy 750 tan variant is a shoe that retailed for $350, and according to StockX, the average deadstock selling price is $2,986. We are talking about over $2000 in profit on one shoe! If you were able to acquire 10 pairs of 750’s, congrats, you just hit the $20k mark for the year. That’s not including every other Yeezy, Jordan, Palace and Supreme release for that year. So, if you really are doubting making the big bucks…don’t. It is very possible and after some time learning the game, you can be doing it too. In case you have any questions about the contents of this guide or anything related to the sneaker game, I have a special question and answer document that only you are allowed to edit. Here is a link to it and feel free to ask a question or even answer yourself! Please do not share this link with anyone as this is an editable document for those that have the link! Q&A Document Questions and Answers Document: Bot Talk Now, I know you are wondering… “Yeah, I could make all this money, but how hell do I do it? I want to know!” Well, here is where I get down and dirty with the details and how using sneaker bots, virtual private servers, addtocart services(atc), and anonymous internet proxies can help make you money. Now, if none of those words made any sense to you, don’t worry, they don’t have to. I will briefly explain what each one does and why you need them. In addition to that information, I will provide you with some of the top services for each respective category. Below are some explanations of common terms that you should know. What is a Shoe Bot? A shoe bot is a computer program that takes your personal checkout information and quickly submits it to a website, automatically ordering a shoe or item for you. The amount of time is usually in milliseconds(ms). Dedicated Server A dedicated server is an actual physical computer that you have full control over and you are not sharing resources with others. The benefits of a dedicated server include super fast high speed connections, and low ping. Ping being the amount of time it takes for a computer to send an action to a webserver and then receive a response. Lower ping and higher speed internet directly correlates with a faster checkout speed and much better chances at securing the shoes you want. Connections to dedicated server systems are done via Remote Desktop, a process in which you log into the computer remotely from your own computer. Virtual Private Server(VPS) A virtual private server, or VPS, is a virtual server/computer that runs concurrently with other virtual servers on a single machine. The benefits of a VPS include the same as a dedicated server with one important difference to take note of. Since you are using a VPS, you are sharing resources of one computer! This means you are sharing internet speeds which would give you lower speed as a result. Since our main purpose of using a server is to have the best connection possible, dedicated servers are preferred over VPS’s. AddToCart Services This is a service in which you give all of your details to a 3rd party. You give your card details, name and address to someone so that they may use your information in their own bot setup. They run you a slot in their bot and you have a very good chance at getting your item. This is because an established atc service will have a reputable setup to get as many shoes as possible for up to as many slots as they can run without bogging down their setup. This isn’t the case for all atc services, but the more reliable services do and those will be listed later on. Internet Proxies A proxy or proxies are essentially a computerized version of a middleman. Instead of your computer connecting directly to the website, your computer would connect to a proxy and then to the website. The benefits of this include anonymous browsing and multi location access. You could have 10 internet proxies located all over the US and when a shoe site see’s those 10 different connections, it won’t assume they are coming from the same person. This is essential when trying to secure multiple pairs of anything online. The downside of proxies is the reduced ping time as you are including more delay in the process. Depending on the proxies you purchased, the delay could be from 10ms to 400ms. The graphic below depicts the role of a proxy and how it acts as a middleman. Choosing The Right Bot As far as services go, here are some links that I am ordering in terms of personal preference. Once again, the ranking is quite subjective, but all of these services are very good in their own right. Top of the list is what I am considering the best option, while the bottom is not necessarily the worst, but they are still valid options in terms of what your price range is. One thing that separates all of these bots from one another would have to be the customer service. In most situations, I would not have to mention this portion because you would assume every bot creator would support their users very well….well that is not the case for every bot out there. There are some creators that are more willing to support their customers and their product. For starters, if you plan on buying from BetterNikeBot(BNB) don’t expect anything for customer service. They rarely respond to emails and tweets. For the most part you are on your own with them. However, one thing that I will say about BNB is that it is highly supported and works very well due to constant updates and additions from the creator. Despite very lackluster customer support, product support is certainly strong with this bot. As I mentioned before, there are instructionals on BNB’s YouTube channel, instructions for every major release and a very detailed documentation section on its website. However, if you cannot seem to get things down from those sources of information you will have to look to other users to get more detailed information on how to use the bot to its full capability. Although that may seem like an awkward jab at BNB, I personally have gotten the silent treatment from them on many occasions and I won’t forget it. I am very willing to turn my shoulder to them and have moved onto other services that are much more willing to be even a small resource to me. Aside from BNB, most other bot creators are much more willing to offer assistance with their services. Personally, and from what I have seen from others, some of the top services in terms of customer and product support would have to be HeatedSneaks, AnotherNikeBot(ANB) and EasyCop. I will be including more information about these bots later on in the document, so stay tuned. Below is a list of some of the best bots on the market currently. Recommended Bots Servers I mentioned what a dedicated server is above and if you are still confused, feel free to check out some of the sites I will be listing below and read some of the information that they have posted. When it comes to purchasing a dedicated server or VPS, there are a few things to take into account. Just so we are all on the same page here, let me explain what all of this means and how it matters to us. Price This is a very important category due to the fact that you will be using a server for every release you can and if you can save money, do it! One of the best ways to save money on a server is to better understand what you really need for your purposes. Right up front, you do not need the monstrous x2 sniper elite 360 server for $500 a month. As I explain the categories you will understand why. One other thing to include in this section is that sometimes paying hourly for a server is highly beneficial towards cost savings! The benefits of purchasing hourly include not having to pay the high monthly cost if you are not utilizing your server the entire month. Typical hourly rates will be around the 612 cent per hour mark. If you plan on paying monthly for a server, be prepared to pay around $40$60 a month for a good server provider. Some things to note about paying hourly for a server would include mentioning that you must destroy your server after using it. This wipes the server and disconnects you from any future access. It stops your costs from accruing as well and you won’t pay anything further from there. In addition to that though, whenever you would like to use your server provider again, you would have to create another server instance. This would include reinstalling all of your programs and any other necessary items that you would need on your computer for typical bot usage. This brings up an important issue that needs to be mentioned as well when paying hourly. If you have a bot that uses serial keys for activation, you must deactivate your bot on your server before destroying! Otherwise, your key will be permanently tied to a computer that you are never ever going to get access to again. From there you would have to contact your bot creator and get your key reset, and that is not an easy task. So, let’s just avoid that all together and make sure you take care of your keys. In addition to having to reinstall your bots, maybe Google chrome and other programs…you may have some requirements for your system to even run. Most bots need the latest .NET framework from microsoft and some servers are not always the most up to date with their firmware versions. I know for a fact that BNB needs .NET 3.5 to run and here is a trick to get it quickly. On your server, open up Windows Powershell and paste this code into the command prompt: InstallWindowsFeature NETFrameworkCore Source D:\sources\sxs For BNB users let that run and you should be good to go after it installs. If you would like to read more about it here is a link explaining it more in depth: r2012/ Now, there are two more major things to keep in mind. Because you are on a server, security is going to be high and you are going to be slightly restricted at first through some server providers. By this I mean the server settings are not going to allow you to visit websites on your server without asking your permission for every single site and link you attempt to visit. There is an easy solution for this problem if you are on a server that does this. Here are the steps below, just be sure to startup the Server Manager application first: Go to Local Server > IE Enhanced Security Configuration Setting > Off The last thing for the server that we must take into consideration is dealing with browsing sites on the server itself. Most sites have actually blocked most of the subnets that server providers use for their service and so you won’t be able to access some sites like Supreme or Nike. An easy way around this is by using proxies. So if you are using a bot, be sure to not use your local IP as it will most likely be banned already. Proxies are necessary on a server. Keep in mind that if you are paying monthly, you would only have to do this once! However, if you go the hourly route, you would have to do this every time you create a new instance of your server. Personally, I don’t mind paying hourly as I can setup my server very quickly now. I can create, setup and have my server good to go within 10 minutes now and that includes the time takes for the server to initially setup. Going hourly or monthly just depends on how willing you are to deal with steps to setup a server for initial use. That is something I cannot answer for you and you have to deem if it’s worth your time. Processor Speed and Cores For those that are unfamiliar, the processor is the main computing unit in your server. It takes instructions, computes them and spits them out. The biggest factor that you have to worry about is how many cores you are paying for, since that is often how price is broken down. Right off the bat I am letting you know that the law of diminishing returns is strong here. As far as bots go, they do not need a lot of processing power! If you break down what a bot actually does, it takes very little processing power. For this reason, you can get by with looking at purchasing a server package with 2 cores, and at max 4 cores! Anything higher and you are paying a premium for snake oil. Here’s a nifty analogy for you…if you have a steady stream of water that flows into a pipe that leads into a sewer, you are not going to increase the rate at which it flows into the sewer by making the pipe larger. The stream is still going to be the same size and the pipe will make no difference, the only time it would make a difference is if the pipe was too small to begin with. As far as processor speed goes, anything over 2Ghz is well enough and most server providers are offering good speeds regardless and they just limit you on the amount of cores you are able to utilize. Storage This is an easy section as you don’t need a lot of space to store your bot. Most bots take a couple hundred MB max! In addition to that, storage space has little to no impact on bot performance. You can get by easily with a couple GB of space, but for sake of consistency, aim for the smallest size at about 50GB from your server. However, here is something that does matter, the type of storage! There are two different types of storage on the market right now, mechanical hard drives(HDD) and solid state hard drives(SSD). One is significantly faster than the other and should be preferred in every scenario. You want a server that has SSD storage in every circumstance. If your server provider does not offer SSD storage space on your servers, you need to switch right now. The only downside with SSD’s is their price, but that barely comes to light when paying for servers. If you would like to learn more about the differences, the link below is very useful and is a great read: SSD servers give you more speed for everything that is directly tied to computer storage. That means installing programs, opening applications and pulling information from the drive. This could quite possibly be an area that gives you an advantage with your bots because it is able to run quicker than bots that are on a normal HDD. RAM I’m not going to go into the specifics of what RAM actually is and how it works, that’s just not necessary for you to know. However, what is important to know is how it matters and what we should be paying for as far as the amount we need goes. RAM is important if we were running multiple applications at once. For instance, you run a browser, a bot and maybe Spotify on your computer. All of those things are taking up RAM and are being accessed through RAM and so the more RAM you have, the more of those applications you will be able to run at once. If you don’t have enough, applications have to pull information from a lot farther away in your drive space, slowing things down considerable. In our situation, RAM isn’t super important since our servers are nearly barebone and aren’t running lots of applications other than maybe a browser and a few bots. For that reason, I would say that 4GB of RAM is the minimum I would look for in a server, with a ceiling of about 8GB. Anything more than that and you aren’t even utilizing it for your machine and it does not give you any more performance. Network Speed and Location Network speed and location are one of the most important factors that determine whether you are able to get 1 pair or 10 pairs of shoes. You need fast download speed, upload speed and ping. Download speed is the speed that you are able to pull data to your computer. This is the most apparent to us because it determines how fast web pages get loaded on our computers and how fast we are able to download programs or documents from the internet. Upload speed isn’t as noticeable to most people as it is the speed at which your computer sends data to another computer. This is often very small sized requests and those are naturally sent very fast. Upload speed is important, but in the grand scheme of things, download and ping are above It. There already was a slight description of what ping is above, but here it is again quickly. Ping is basically your computer’s reaction time. A lower ping is always better than a higher ping. Anything below 10ms is great and anything below 20ms is good. Anything higher than that and you are limiting yourself, but there are good reasons to sometimes have a bit higher of a ping for other benefits. I will get into that when I talk about proxies. A reason that I mentioned location is that ping is heavily factored on it. If you are in California and are trying to talk to a computer in New York, naturally it is going to take longer for communication to happen. However, if you are in San Diego and are trying to talk to a computer in San Francisco, you are going to be at least ten times faster because of the shorter distance. If you are able to pick a server provider that is located closer to the server location of sites you would like to access that puts you one step ahead of everyone else. It is a small improvement that you would be looking at, and we are talking about maybe 510ms, but it could very well be the difference between checking out or not. Bandwidth Bandwidth is the amount of data that can be transferred from one computer to another. This is often included in pricing schemes of some server providers and it is important to mention. It is a tough number to calculate and thankfully most server providers give you a really nice cushion here. Just as a quick example, I had run BetterNikeBot for an entire week for restocks on Supreme and I used up about 10GB of bandwidth. This included about 10 separate tasks with proxies. If we scaled that number up, running 10 tasks for the whole month we would need about 40GB of bandwidth. So, depending on how much you are planning on running your bot I think anything around 100GB of bandwidth would be good enough for most people. Recommended Server Specifications OS: Windows Cores: 4 (2Ghz or higher) RAM: 4GB Storage: > 50GB SSD Network Speed: 1k Down, 1k Up, < 15ms ping Bandwidth: > 100GB Recommended Server Providers Connecting to the Server As far as connecting to a server goes, they are all very universal. You have three important fields. The IP, Username and Password and the information will look like this: IP Username Administrator Password f45gsdrh5! If you are using the recommended server provider, Vultr, the username will always be Administrator and the password will be right below that. You have to click the eye to show the password. All of this information should be visible to you once your server is finally installed. You can double click on your server and should see all of this information. From there you will need a program to Remote Desktop into your new server. On windows search for RDP and it should be the application called Remote Desktop Connection or something very similar to that. If you are on a Mac, I recommend going over to the app store and downloading Microsoft Remote Desktop. Both applications are very easy to use as all you have to do is input your information into their respective fields. ● The server usually takes around only five minutes to install!. ● You can watch as it installs and it will tell you when ready. Sometimes the loading status gets stuck and if you refresh the page, it will say that you server is actually ready. ● Customer Support is always active, and if you ever have an issue, they respond within the hour for me. Don’t be afraid to contact them. AddToCart Sometimes situations arise and you just don’t have the time to rent a server, get proxies and set up a bot to get a pair of shoes. This stuff takes time and that is where these atc services come into play. They take all of that work and do it for you in exchange for payment. You pay someone else to do what you would do and they get your address, credit card and other billing information. Like I explained earlier in the document, you are giving your information to them to put it in their bot setup and run a slot for you. Obviously, it’s going to cost money. Atc services have to pay for servers, proxies and their own time and so that will sometimes be worth more that you are willing to pay. On a hot release, atc services are usually quite pricey since everyone without a bot would be looking at taking advantage of them. This cost cuts into any sort of profit you would be looking at if you wanted to resell the item and atc services know this and price their service accordingly to each release. That is why if you are looking to profit, atc isn’t what you are normally going to be looking for, but do your research! Sometimes atc cost is lower with newer services popping up trying to establish themselves and lots of atc services run deals where you can win a slot or get a heavily discounted one. If you keep your eyes open you may get lucky. Do remember that these services are trying to build brand recognition and so any usage they are getting that they can tweet out to followers is good for them. Recommended ATC services @InstantCarts I highly recommend Instant Carts as they are VTKverified, have very high success rates and have very good customer service. I have used them personally and I was not disappointed. If you have any questions before purchasing, hit them with a direct message and they are happy to help. When you purchase from them, make sure that you mention you heard about them from me, @SwiftCop! Proxies If you have not read the quick explanation of what a proxy is from the beginning of the document, I would highly recommend it. However, here is a quick refresher. An internet proxy is a middle man to your computer and another computer. It is used to provide anonymity to the user as it hides their IP address, MAC address, location and internet traffic habits. This has many uses and as sneaker enthusiasts we can leverage the advantage that this anonymity grants us. Something that retailers like to do is to limit pairs per store account. An easy way around this is to have multiple accounts that connect from different locations making it appear that they are separate individuals. For almost all scenarios this works to prevent your orders from getting canceled for violating their policy. This is why proxies are so important to us sneakerheads and I am going to explain a couple thing about proxies to clear up any confusion. Ping A very important factor to remember when dealing with connecting to proxies is the fact that you are introducing another level for your internet to have to go through. Naturally, this creates a delay and it takes longer for your connection to be able to accomplish tasks. This increases reaction time when trying to access websites or run your bot and that introduces a higher ping. Now, if you are purchasing good proxies that are hosted by a very good provider you will be minimizing the risks of increasing more delay. Some of the best proxies that I have seen only add about 510ms to your total ping time. However, if you are purchasing cheaper ones from a lesser known provider you are running the risk having a much higher ping. Location This section ties really well with ping as closer locations reduce ping time. Something that a lot of proxy providers offer is the ability to choose the location you would like to have your proxies. If you know that you are trying to purchase from Supreme NYC, their servers are actually located in Jacksonville, Florida. So if you can get proxies located as close as possible to that area, you will be faster than other bot users trying to connect from much further locations. If you would like to lookup location too, use a WHOIS search. Google it and you can find tons of providers that take care of it. Just look for location and you are good from there. Pricing This section is a little bit harder to hit the nail on the head, but it will give you a good idea of what you should be looking for. For about 10 proxies you are are going to be spending around $30 which comes out to around $3 per proxy. This is the upper range of what you should be paying and anything in the $2$3 range should be considered better proxies. If you are coming across proxies for around $1 each, then you know you aren’t getting quality and you need to do your research on them and determine why they are so cheap. Often, if you buy through a small seller on twitter or a shady site, you are actually getting nondedicated proxies that get banned in an instant by the retailers. There are some exceptions to this thinking, but just keep it in mind when you notice cheaper than normal proxies. See below for an explanation of why nondedicated proxies are not optimal for our sneaker use. Dedicated vs NonDedicated The idea vs dedicated and nondedicated is the same for proxies as it is for servers. Having a dedicated proxy means that it is only private to you and you get the maximum speeds that you are paying for. This also means that you determine the usage of the proxy and if it gets banned, it is on your own accord. You are not responsible for other people getting your proxy banned. Other reasons to use private proxies(dedicated) is that nonprivate proxies are often filled with other users that may be interested in intercepting your internet traffic and that is a whole different security issue that we don’t want to deal with. As resellers we are sending credit card data over the internet and shared proxies do introduce the risk of someone taking that data without you even knowing until it’s too late. Just to break it down for you simply here is a chart comparing the two. Anonymous NotAnonymous Costs more Much cheaper Recommended Proxy Providers Backdoors There are two forms of ‘backdooring’. The one that most of you are most likely familiar with is the physical version in which sneaker store employees sell early stock to people for a higher than retail price before release. If you are one of these people, I bet you are doing just fine. However, this method isn’t what I want to be focusing on as there is a virtual method that is called a backdoor as well. To put it simply, backdooring a site involves creating a specialized URL for a sneaker that automatically adds an item to your cart and takes you to the checkout page, skipping the initial page most people would see. A lot of times this means that you are actually able to checkout the item before it is even available, but it is quite obvious if you checkout a shoe an hour before it actually releases. An order like that would be cancelled. However, if you wait until as close as possible to release and then attempt to checkout, your chances of having an order cancelled are severely diminished. There are important pieces of this URL that need to be found out before a release as it isn’t the easiest process if you don’t know what to be looking for. A lot of times the people who know how to get this link are not giving it out for free and if they are, you have to be very good friends. Shopify Here we have one of the easiest site to backdoor at the current time. Shopify is an an ecommerce company the programs point of sale and online checkout systems for companies to purchase and use. The problem with Shopify is that is has gotten to the point that it is so large, there is so much documentation on how to take advantage of it. There are certain sites that only use Shopify and the backdooring process is the same for them all since it’s the same system. Sites like Concepts, Bodega, Extra Butter, BAPE, and Packer Shoes all use Shopify and are relatively easy to backdoor. The really funny part is that Shopify almost tells us how to backdoor them for releases. They help you preload your cart and use a permalink to check out faster. This is useful for companies to have, but we can take advantage of this knowledge. Below is more information on how to do so. This is what a preloaded permalink for Shopify looks like: The longer number after the cart is the product ID and the 1 after the colon is the quantity of the item that you would like. This link would be slightly different depending on what site you are trying to create the link for. “Yourstore” would be replaced by whatever store you are trying to create the backdoor for. So, now that you know that, there are three major things we need. The store, the product id, and the quantity. Luckily two out of the three are very easy. As far as the product ID goes, this can be the harder part especially if the item is not listed. If the item is already listed, we can do a quick look at the source code of the webpage to find the product ID of the item we want. When at the product page, go to the top URL and add “.xml” to the end of it. This should open up a page that shows a ton of html web code. We are only interested in a product ID, so scroll down until you see a ton of sizes listed out in the code. If you take a little bit to skim through and find it, we can pull the product ID out of the size of the shoe we would like. The product ID will be different for every size in most situations. If it is the same, then you won’t be able to actually pick a size and you may need to send a message to customer support to have your size picked. If it gets to that point though, you may have your order cancelled because they know how you obtained that pair. Solebox If you would like to backdoor Solebox, make sure you already have the link. If you don’t have the live link, then this method will not work. If you know how to find the early link or the product page is live already, then you are in the clear. For this tutorial, we will use this product and link: From here, we want to take a look at the page source again, so take a look at the picture below: From here we should see the source of the page and we are only interested in one thing, the checkout link. Search, use ctrl+f, and look for the string “addtocart”. You should see the below information: Copy the link and it should look like this: m94LmNvbS9haXItam9yZGFuLTEtcmV0cm8taGlnaC1vZy00OTUxMy5od G1s/product/49509/form_key/dtzL07cjtZYntIhs/ We still need to get the correct size added to the cart, so we need to do some more searching. Using search or ctrl+f, search for the string, “Product.config”. We can see available PID’s here and this is the information we want. There is only one size available for this shoe, so we can obviously only cart that one size right now. However, when there are more sizes, they are loaded into the site. The PID in this case will be for size 45.5 which is 49517. Take the link above, and paste it in the red portion of the link. Take the link and enter it into your browser. The item should add to your cart and you are free to checkout whenever you want. The final link is below: m94LmNvbS9haXItam9yZGFuLTEtcmV0cm8taGlnaC1vZy00OTUxMy5od G1s/product/49517/form_key/dtzL07cjtZYntIhs/ Jimmy Jazz If you would like to know how to backdoor this site, follow the step below and you should be able to get any item in your cart. However, do not checkout until the timer is done, or the item drops. It will get cancelled if ordered early! Head over to JJ and look for the link of the item that you want to backdoor(bd). We will be using the below item for the tutorial: From here, we want to find the special product ID for the shoe. To do this, we can either look at the source, or use inspect element on the sizes. For this guide, I will just right click and choose inspect element over one of the sizes of the shoe. This step will pull up a table that looks like this: Take the item_code for the size that you want and input it into the link below where the * is:*/1 Your link should look like this for a size 9.5: Take that link, and enter it into your browser. You should get a page with a bunch of code on it. Don’t worry, you don’t need to understand it as this was the last step in the process. Go check your cart now and you should have the item in cart. Once again, for this site, do not checkout until the product is live. You will get cancelled. ENDClothing *Quick note about this one. Some people report it works, others are reporting it no longer works. It might be location based, but I am looking into it. May be patched, so don’t get frustrated trying too hard. ENDLaunches is a different site as well, these are not the same* This site is also fairly easy to backdoor as they don’t really hide anything from you either. The only thing that may be struggle would be getting the correct size added to your cart, as it is kind of a guessing game. However, this is how you start the backdoor…take any product with a release time off of END’s page. You can find them under the ‘Latest’ tab and under upcoming releases. Click on any of the product under that page and we may continue from there. We need to right click on your mouse and select ‘view page source’ again. We should see a ton of HTML code. Don’t be afraid, it is really easy to read. We need to find the checkout link which is actually really easy to do! Use your find feature in your browser(control+ f for chrome), and search for ‘form_key’. You should have 2 results. The first one is not what we want, we want the second one that is within a script. See below for what I am looking at. Yours will not look the same as I had to break up the link to fit it in a nice picture for you. This is our link! Copy the whole link and paste it into your URL bar, but do not hit enter or search for it.Take a look at it closely. We will not change it other than one thing. Do you see where within the url there are six numbers? We will be replacing the “374454” with another number. This is where the fun comes in because we actually don’t know the number we are replacing with. However, we do know is that it is close. We want to try different numbers that are lower than this number, but within two places of each other. So, what I mean by that is you take the last two digits of the PID you have and you go from 18 to 16 to 14 to 12. After doing this myself, I was able to find the size that loaded in my cart, “374445”. You want to refresh your cart on END after hitting enter on the link after changing the number. After some trial and error you should be able to check your cart and it will look similar to mine. That’s it! All you have to do is checkout and you are good as long as they don’t cancel, but END does not cancel backdoor orders as long as you don’t order 2 weeks ahead of time. I have not tried that, so try with caution. Checking out a few hours before is best advised. Here is a list of sites that this method has been confirmed to work on(being updated): Other Sites Now, I cannot go on explaining every site backdoor method there is. However, a reason that I chose to share END with you is that the process is very similar on sites that do allow backdoored orders. I do not have a list as it changes all the time, some lose access and others gain access to being backdoored, but the process is always almost the same. You need two important things. 1. The cart link 2. The PID Once you have those two things you are able to backdoor maybe 80% of websites. The others take a lot more knowledge and know how that is almost too in depth for an in depth guide. You need some more advanced web knowledge of web coding and some scripting to be successful for these sites. If you have to go through that much trouble though, there is a high chance that the site would just cancel your order before release anyways! Page Monitoring Now, this is a section that will highlight copping shoes manually. Yes, you can have the perfect bot setup, perfect proxies and perfect server, however a lot of the ‘lowkey’ sites that drop some releases do not support bots. There is not enough traffic on these sites for bot creators to support. However, if you are looking for the bot that supports the most ‘lowkey’ sites, refer back to AnotherNikeBot AIO that is linked earlier in this document. They handle a lot of sites that are not supported by other bots. If you subscribe to OneStopCop(OSC) already, you already have lists of all the lowkey sites. This section will highlight what you can do with those to increase your chances of copping manually. However, if you do not subscribe to OSC, you need to find sites that are dropping your product that are lesser known. This is often smaller boutique shops and although they have smaller stocks, they are not tweeted out by the major link aggregators and chances of being able to successfully purchase increase significantly. Now, let’s assume you have a list of about 50 sites that are releasing the product you want, be it shoes or clothing. There is no possible way you will be able to monitor every single one of those sites if they are not telling you when they are going to let the product go live. A lot of these stores have such little stock as I said before and would like to have everyone have a fair shot at purchasing if they are monitoring that store’s page. This is where the jig comes in. I am going to mention a chrome extension that I use to accomplish the upcoming tasks I will be talking about and it is called Distill. Find it at the link below. Now, let us get started with how to use this amazing extension. What this will do for you is either monitor a whole webpage for changes, or just a small selection of the webpage, you pick! You can do even more with it such as monitoring for certain keywords that update to the page, choose how often to update the page, send notifications to your phone, email and computer! To set monitoring up on your computer, you are going to want to go to the product page of the product that you are trying to buy. This can be either an actual product page, or it can be a search page specified with your search terms. For example, take a look at the screenshot below: This is The Good Will Out, and the page we would have been monitoring before release. Now, assuming this product did not drop already, we would have been on this page already and it would have said coming soon or something of the sort. With Distill, monitoring this page would have been easy. We would choose, ‘select parts of this page’ in distill and monitor this section of the product page: With only this section selected, Distill would send us a notification if anything in this area changed. The important thing that we want to focus on is that we do not want fake changes in the page to trigger Distill, so we limit how much we monitor. If we monitor the whole page, any change at all on the page will send us an update and that most likely will be a false update. Now, that is a process that you repeat for each site that you would like to monitor. In addition to making sure that you have the correct portions monitored, we also would like to change the monitor rate. I would recommend monitoring each page with a 10 second interval. You can lower the interval, but that increases the amount of false notifications if the page is updating frequently. Now, if there is not a product page, you can still use Distill! Nearly every site has a search bar or search page and we can do the same process depicted above to that page as well. Input the product you are interested in on the site, and make sure to hit enter to search for it. On TGWO, this is what that page looks like: We can do the same process above for this page as it will update with any product that releases under my search terms, which was just “nmd”. In this case, the product went live already and is showing, however if it was not live and if we were monitoring this page we would have been updated. For this page it is important to monitor the whole page as we do not know where the shoe will pop up here. You may get some false alerts if others shoes load, but you will be just have to be willing to deal with a few of those if you are monitoring web pages for changes! As far as monitoring goes, that is the extent of what you need to know. It is very easy and the initial time it may take to set up about 25 websites might be 25 minutes, but it is worth it if no bots can run on the site. You will get updates before the major tweeters even know about it and you will be one of the first few in line ready to cop. Restocks Now, as far as restocks are concerned, you can use the same setup you were using to initially monitor the sneakers if you were using Distill. If you had monitored only part of the page, you will have to go back into the Distill settings and change the parts you want to monitor after the item has sold out. If you were monitoring the whole page, you will still get a notification for the item restocking on the site. I recommend letting distill run 24/7 for all possible restocks. This is the only way to know about any as by the time it would get tweeted out, stock will be sold out. Footsites Whenever I mention ‘footsites’ keep in mind that I am talking about the four major retailers Foot Locker, Finishline, Champs and Footaction. These sites often release most releases that drop on Nike and they also have their own special models that release along with specialized colorways. As far as these sites go, there are some tips that you should look into following if you are trying to purchase lot of pairs off of these sites. The foot sites only allow one purchase per person, but obviously we know ways around this! To get multiple pairs off one site such as Foot Locker this is what we need to be successful in getting multiple pairs: No matter if you have ANB, EasyCop, BNB or any other bot, there is a chance of getting your orders cancelled if you are buying more than one pair. If you do the following steps, you should not have a problem. The key to getting multiple pairs is to make it look like there is a different person ordering every shoe. Every account that you run should be on a different proxy. So if you are running 10 accounts on Footlocker, you want 10 different proxies. You don’t have to worry about using them on other sites as there is no way to tie them together that way. Feel free to use those same 10 proxies on another foot site. By using a proxy for each account, it looks like whoever purchased that shoe is coming from different locations. This is the first key. The next thing that you are going to want to take care of is to use a guest account or a mix of guest accounts and real accounts. With guest accounts there is no way of them knowing that you have made the purchase on another guest account unless they tie your information together from something else that identifies you such as address, credit card or IP address. A major cause leading to cancelled orders is having 10 pairs of shoes shipped to the same looking address. This is immediately flagged in the system and then most likely cancelled by the system itself, or they have an employee that goes through and cancels these multiple orders. If you do not want to be caught by the automatic system, then you can do something that has been confirmed working for a while now. You want to change up small instances in your address. This include changing small parts of your address that still make the item deliverable, but make it look different to an automatic system. Thing like Road can be changed to Rd., Street to St., and many others. Another tip that I have seen people use is to add a second line for their address and add something similar to Room B, or Room A. The address can remain the same, you are just adding this distinction so it makes it appear that there are actually multiple people living in the household! Don’t abuse this by making it look like you have one room for every single letter in the alphabet as I am unsure if that would work. Use sparingly for more success. One last key is to use a separate credit card for every order. Your billing address can be the same, however you want to make sure the shipping address is the one being switched up. One card per order means you should be using as many cards as possible per each site. If you have 5 cards, you can get away with 5 pairs on each of the sites giving you a total of about 20 pairs. Now, if you want a trick to get as many cards as you want, take a look at the next section. Privacy Multiple Cards International Purchases If you are not aware, there is a recently started company that is basically a reseller’s dream. This service allows you to create a unique card number for every purchase. Yes, you heard that right. You can have as many cards as you would like! Below is the link to take a look at the site. It is currently invite only, but if you DM them on Twitter they give you access! Then you are allowed to refer only one other person to the service. It is very lowkey right now. All this service does is connect to your bank account and it is able to pull money from there to add funds to a card that you can choose as a burner card or as a card with a limited amount of funds. You install the chrome extension to help you along the way and it appears in credit card entry locations on whatever site you are trying to purchase from. To use it in association with a shoe bot, you should create multiple cards with a specified amount to be most successful and then you may have as many cards as you like. If you have questions, feel free to send them an email or DM as they are very customer service oriented and they solve all issues very quickly! International Shipping Reshippers If you did not know already, there is an easy way to have purchases from companies that only ship to EU or UK to ship to the US. Yes, you have to go through another service, but it is fairly simple. For those releases on sites such as Adidas EU or UK that do not ship to US, these companies are vital to our success. To break it down simply, you register an account with these companies, they give you a specialized address to use that works in the specified location that you need it to work in, you have your item shipped their, they ship the item to you in the US after you pay a fee. Very simply to use and the costs are not terribly high. One company called ReShip charges a $5 signup fee and then $5 per package that you need shipped. Here is a quick breakdown of their prices and fees. Additional price and fees can be found at their site below: Now, this is not the only service that does this. I cannot list them all however I do know that this is one of the most popular. You can take a search around the find a service that you prefer, but I am just opening your eyes up to the possibility of a reshipping service. This means that you can now participate in all international releases and drops, this is huge! Try to keep this method on the downlow as very many people are not aware that this is a possibility and a lot of releases are actually easier internationally. One more thing to keep in mind is that you most likely need an EU or UK form of payment to be able to purchase shoes in these locations! However, if you are using Privacy from the above section, they actually support international sales. There are other services that do the same such as Entropay. To save you some time, here is a list I compiled of other sites that perform the same service. Web Page Source Checking Shopify If you did not know already, it is very easy to check the stock/inventory of an item on certain sites. One of the easiest is certainly shopify sites since that info is visibly available to us. You can take a look at the source code, but if you just are not feeling that, here is a better way. Download the below chrome extension: bbflf?hl=en Whenever you are on a Shopify site, you can click on the barcode extension that is now in your extension bar and check the inventory of any product! Here is what it would look like for a random item that I pulled up. If the site is not Shopify it will not work. However if you would like to try it on another site, you have to do so manually. If you are feeling spicy, go check a random shoe store online and look at the source code of the page. Just right click and select view source. If there is a table that lists out all the sizes available for the shoe, there is most likely an inventory count available for you to see as well. You just have to look closely! Bot Usage Tips There is a lot to cover in this section and so I will just bullet point some of the more important concepts to keep in mind. If you have any questions, feel free to drop it in the Q & A document here: ● Let’s start with the most basic, if you are using a bot, you should be using a server and proxy for maximum results. Checkout the server and proxy section above again if you happened to skip it. ● A bot does not guarantee you a shoe, ever! It only increases your chances. ● Sometimes keywords are not available for a release. Use your head! If a site is dropping a White NMD runner from Adidas, you can bet that Adidas+NMD+runner is going to be a very good set of keywords. Double check the site to make sure no other item would match these keywords first though as you can accidentally check out another shoe. You do not have to rely on bot creator’s keywords as they just use the same logic most of the time. ● If you only have 10 proxies, you should really only be running 20 tasks max. The more tasks/proxy, the slower your proxies connection speed will be. ● As a caveat to the above bullet, you want to have as many tasks as possible for more chances. If you can run 20 tasks for one site, you can bet you are going to get some successful checkouts. You have to play the odds. You would want at least 10 proxies for 20 tasks. Just remember, 2 tasks per proxy. ● If you need multiple emails for account creation take this tip… is the same as All mail is forwarded to the main email. You can do this with any number. will still work the same way. Most sites recognize it as a new user! ● You can also do this: or It all is routed to the main email address and is also recognized as a new user. ● This is not bot related, but you can use the above email tip to hoard tons of Adidas 15% off coupons from their sign up bonus. These codes can be used on restocks and some really nice shoes occasionally! ● Take a look at your checkout delay settings in your bot. Sometimes they are a little too slow and you want to increase your chances of purchasing, so lower is better. However, if you go too low, and a site cancels orders, they will most likely recognize that you were using a bot and cancel. ANB is more complicated to change, but for BNB users, you can easily change your delay from 1000ms 3000ms(1 second 3 seconds). Remember, lower is faster! Keep it low because I would much rather have an order cancelled than an order not go through because the item is sold out. ● When purchasing Supreme and the keywords do not work, as they often do, be ready to get the link of the product. If you can enter the early link in your bot fast enough, your bot still check out faster than manual! Swift fingers are important! ● Always start your bot 510 minutes before a release. That lets you get logged in, it gives you more of a chance if the site goes down and you can test that your proxies are connected and that the tasks are setup correctly ● Early links are always better than keywords! ● 403 forbidden means you got your proxy banned. If you don’t use proxies, then you got your own IP banned. ● If you are hopping to and from server instances, make sure you are backing up your data! It saves so much more time and you do not have to reenter card details every time you want to reinstall your bot. ● You can let your bot run for restocks if you do not mind burning proxies. Some people run their bots 24/7 hoping for a restock and guess what, some people cook! Nicekicks is an example of a site that restocks often and people eat up those restocks like nothing. If you don’t run your bot, you don’t have a chance! Proxies are cheap compared to the shoes that you have a potential to make a profit on. How to know whether to sleep or buy A huge part of the game is being able to determine what releases you should be going all in on, and what releases you should be avoiding all together. Just as a sign of caution, this can be tricky at times! Let’s take a look back at the Nike Air Max x Supreme collaboration from a few weeks ago now. At first it seemed like an amazing opportunity to make some money. Nike and Supreme? Holy Cow! However, there were a couple pieces of information that you had to pay attention to in order to know if you should have bought or not. Here are some things to consider when thinking about going all in, or watching from the sidelines. Price One of the most important factors to take into consideration is how much the item will cost at retail price. Let’s take a look at how the resell market was a few years ago with Nike pricing Jordans around the $150 mark. According to documents released today(6/1/16) by StockX, the total amount made by resellers in December of 2014 was about 1.3 million dollars. The year after the resell market only profited about 400 thousand dollars during the same time frame. You can find more info here: Now, what is different between the two years that would cause a one million dollar price difference? Think about it! Nike recently started raising its retail prices as well as stock numbers and it has been hurting the resell market bad. Jordan’s used to be bread and butter, but they have diminished to smaller profits and now you really have to take into consideration what releases you are going for because of the high retail cost. Margins are becoming slimmer and profit is becoming more risky. If the retail cost is too high, resell will also be high, but you will have less buyers willing to purchase at those higher prices unless that item is really worth something or it is an exclusive item. Most people are not going to pay more than $400 for a general release Jordan and I think that is something we all can agree on. Why pay so much for something that everyone else will have? So, if the item is not exclusive, has near unlimited production, or has no kind of draw, a high retail price is most likely going to kill any resell. Let’s take a look at an item that contradicts this viewpoint. The Jordan 4 Premium sneakers that have been releasing are retailing around $400. And that is expensive as far as retail is concerned. However, guess what….they are extremely limited, they have huge draw because of their specialized materials and they are exclusive. These shoes resell for about $700 at the current market rate and are an exception to the typical high retail cost theory that I mentioned before. It’s all about analyzing the item to see if those categories match an item that would typically resell. Just to give you an example of an item that fits right into this model that you should not buy, take a look at the Supreme Vans that dropped a few weeks ago. Some people thought resell was going to be very good, however I just looked on in disappointment. Taking a look at the shoe, first of all, the price was way more expensive than a typical pair of Vans. Huge flag! There is no kind of draw to the shoe. Why would you want to own them? They do have a Supreme logo on the back, but other than that, they are about as plain as can be. That is awesome as far as wearability is concerned, but we are concerned with resell. We all know that they only released at Supreme retail locations as well as online. They were limited in production, but the other two factors outweighed this fact. Just because something is limited, does not mean it will resell! Remember back when Cam’ron released the Reebok Purple Ventilator and it was limited to some 200 pairs. However, resell was dead a week after release. There was no draw to the shoe even though production was limited and retail was a very reasonable price. Just take a look at the item analytically and see if the factors that determine resell align with similarly priced items. It is tough at first, but eventually you will be able to see how retail affects resell. Quantity In the previous section I had mentioned that a lower quantity does not imply a higher resell value. This is very true, but it is not normal. There are very few cases where something is highly limited and it does not have a market. I don’t think I can list too many examples, so I will spare you the trouble. In general, if an item is limited, go for it. Chances are there are people that wanted the item, but because of the limited market, they lucked out and are looking to pay resell. Just do not take lower production numbers as the only factor in determining if an item will have resell or not. Keep in mind price and the uniqueness of the item. Hype Here we have one of the most important factors in determining resell prices. You have to know where to look if you want to figure this out. There are different markets and different groups interested in different releases. One site may cater towards more flashy items, while another site is really into the jean jackets or something. Know how to look around! You have to hawk Twitter, Reddit, NikeTalk and any other place you can find people talking about the drop. You need to see the most hyped items and mark them down. The more hype around an item, the more people are trying to purchase. With more people trying to purchase, the more failures there are going to be. That all translates over to a higher valued resell market for the item and steady prices, which is very good for us! That is the extent of this section as it just takes time to learn how to dig for hype. You will learn if you just read reactions, first impressions and maybe even YouTube videos. PreSales This is one of those factors that is really in the middle. A high presale price does not necessarily mean the item is guaranteed to have a high resell price. However, it is a very good indication of what people are willing to pay. If there are preorders for an item up and they are not being sold, just sitting there, that is a sign that the price posted is too high, or the item is not hyped enough. If either of these are true, it might be best to avoid. For nearly every release there is going to be items that get sold early, posted online before the drop or just somehow fall off a truck. This is a very good way to see how the market price will be set as a lot of preorders actually set market price since they are listed first. Just keep it in mind and check eBay as it has one of the largest user bases to judge off of. Where and How to Sell Quickly Some of this information may be known already, but I do want to cover it so that it is still documented information. So, assuming you got the purchase, you got the order confirmation and you are in the clear…what do you do now? I have an answer for you, list the item right away! No, it is not in hand yet, but here is the thing. With limited releases and even general releases, the amount of hype during the same day of launch is much higher than any other time. Those that strike out go right to the resellers and look to secure their pair the same day. If you list your pair the same day of the drop, your chances of selling your pair before you have them in hand is extremely high. If you start sitting on your shoes past a week after the drop, you are doing something very wrong! After about the first week, no one is hyped about the release anymore, collectors already have their pairs and you are selling to people that are really late to the game. Those people that are late are also much more willing to wait for a lower price to fall into their lap. So in the end, if you don’t list right away, you will be getting less money! On the day of the release, you have your order confirmation and the shoe type that you ordered. That is enough information to sell the item on most sites and you just need to remember to block out any order numbers so your order does not get cancelled before it even gets to you. As far as sites go, you want to hit up every site possible. Now that includes eBay, Twitter, Facebook groups and craigslist. I know there are more, but these are some of the most popular and it will help you so much to get your pair sold. As far as pricing goes, you don’t want to heavily undercut other buyers. That leads to less money for you, less money for them and you are also helping to decrease the price of the overall item as well. Undercut slightly and you will still pull interested buyers. If anyone makes a good offer, you can always take that as well. After all of that, and you didn’t sell your shoe within the first few days, you are in a bit of trouble. You will want to really step your game up to get the item sold now. From here you need to make sure to take updated photos of the item you are trying to sell, update your listings, update your price and push it out as fast as possible. In nearly every case, the price of a shoe never increases unless it is over a time frame of multiple months. It is never a good idea to sit on an item or a pair of shoes unless they are already super valuable. To sum it all up in a simple paragraph, sell same day, even before you get the shoes. Sell with a competitive price and if you get a good offer, take it. It will be the highest offer you will receive since it is the day or a few days after the drop. Post your item everywhere you can and increase exposure. Protecting Yourself When Selling Online If you don’t already know, the internet is full of cheaters, scams and others that really don’t care about you or your money. Sadly, this is how things are sometimes and as resellers, this is something that we also have to deal with. There are very sophisticated scammers, and then there are just people that don’t know what they are doing, but they still get away with it. The way the system is setup currently, the buyer is always right. This is the case for any PayPal transaction, any eBay transaction and any other transaction basically everywhere. The seller almost always takes the fault, however, we can do things to mitigate this risk and actually protect ourselves. The first thing that will really help you is tagging your pictures. If you take a piece of paper, write your username on it, and place it in the photos you are using to sell the item, that proves you own the item. In addition, if you can make it look nicer, it helps other people trust you since they can confirm you actually have the item. It is good for a buyer’s peace of mind. The second thing is to properly describe the item you are selling. Whether it is through an eBay description, a PayPal invoice or another site…. you absolutely need to make your description clear, concise and apparent to what you are trying to do. You are trying to sell a highly limited item for a certain price and you need to portray that as accurately as possible. Leave no room for error to have PayPal or anyone else to find you at fault for a bad sale. The above items were before a sale, however there are a number of things you can do the protect yourself after the sale is made. One of the most important things to remember is that if you are selling through PayPal or eBay, you need to use signature confirmation to be eligible for seller protection through both services after a certain price point. That price point is about $250 and that is essentially resale on any general resell Jordan, so you need to be purchasing signature confirmation on nearly every shoe you resell! If the item you are selling is worth a bit more and you are worried about it becoming damaged in the mail, you can include insurance, but that really does not do anything for you and your mail carrier will find every way to not get you that money. It usually isn’t the best idea to purchase the insurance since your package will most likely be good upon arrival as long as you packaged it correctly. Another thing that you need to take care of if the item is expensive or over the $400 mark or so…record yourself packing the item! Print your shipping label, show that in a video as you package the item in the shipping container. Send this video as evidence if anything ever comes up. Leave it on your computer for a bit and if you don’t have to use it, even better! It is your own personal insurance. As far as purchases over $500 go, I really recommend trying to get that cost gifted, or friends and family. Here is the thing, if the item is bought with anything else, a chargeback is very possible. And you won’t get it right away, you will get it a few weeks down the line when you think you are in the clear…If you sold your pair of Yeezy’s for 1k to someone and a few weeks later you get a chargeback, you are going to be hurting, no doubt about it. Try and get the cost gifted to give you peace of mind because a buyer can open up a case up until 40 or so days. Do the above and you should be protected as much as possible. In many cases the above are enough and if you are not fully comfortable with it, then stick to selling locally. There is still a huge local market if you are in a city and you can take home even more money since you are getting straight cash and don’t have to pay any seller fees. Taxes and Fees Just to enlighten you about a topic that I think too many people ignore… seller fees. When you are selling online, you are losing at least 10% of the sale to your selling platform, that is almost always guaranteed. Now, if you can circumvent that by selling only through PayPal invoice, selling locally and selling on Facebook groups, you will be able to keep more money in your pocket. But, there is one important thing to remember…platforms such as eBay are almost always worth it because they open your item up to a much wider audience. If you have international sales enabled as well as being able to use the international shipping center selected, you are opening a whole other market up for selling. In some situations, the 10% is worth the cost. But keep in mind it isn’t always. One other thing to consider if you are selling on eBay, is opening up a store. If you sell enough to pay the $20 a month for an eBay store, you can get a few percentages of fees taken off of your total. You also get some other benefits, but reducing fees for only $20 a month is a really good move. In addition to the seller fees, remember that shipping comes out of your total profit too, so whenever you get the chance, choose the best option for the item you are selling. Always get signature confirmation, but if you can purchase a slower shipping speed to save you a couple bucks, go for it! USPS shipping speeds are all very good even for the cheapest standard shipping option. Personally, I like to ship priority since I like to have my buyer get the item as soon as possible, less time I have to worry about it. Another thing to think about, there are also taxes to take care of. In case you didn’t know, you are legally obligated to report any earnings to the IRS. At the end of the year you should be paying taxes on the profit you make selling shoes. Now, here is where things get tricky. PayPal records all of your transactions and reports them at the end of the year. You are going to get a document from them that shows how much you should be reporting to the IRS. What you should be doing, is tracking all of your sales that you are making, how much gross and how much profit. You need this information to claim that not all the money that entered your PayPal was entirely profit. Otherwise you are looking at a very expensive bill from the IRS and you do not want that. If you don’t think you can handle that, you can outsource the work to a financial consultant and they can help you take care of that, but it is very serious business. If you are only making a couple thousand for the year on reselling, the risk isn’t too high for getting caught. However, if you are pulling in like 20k a year and the bank and the IRS do not know where that is coming from…that will lead to an investigation that will have you paying a nice fine and a large bill. I know we are all in it for the big bucks, so if you are only making a couple thousand a year, you need to step your game up. In summary, reduce fees, reduce shipping costs, ship with signature confirmation, record your sales in an excel spreadsheet and pay your taxes

Multiple Orders On Adidas

The key is to have either multiple credit cards (CC’s) or multiple shipping address if you plan on eating a lot on one site. Taking the experience into example in where he had 3 CC’s and 3 Shipping the ideal ordering method would be this: CC1 orders and ships individual pairs to Address 1, Address 2, and Address 3. If you’re able to get more than 3 pairs and continue to order use CC2 and ship to Address 1, Address 2, or Address 3 and so on. If you’re limited on addresses, it is possible to use CC2 and ship to Address 1 and then continue to use CC3 and ship to Address 1.   In short, after your first pair, use either a different address or CC, or a combination of the two to continue eating on that website. This method should be more than enough to avoid order cancellations and can safely bypass everything Adidas and other websites do to limit the shoes to one per customer

Survival Guide (Feb 19th edition)

Yeezy Season Survival Guide: FEB 19TH EDITION It’s already that time again. Yeezy Season is, once again, upon us. The folks here at Resell Cartel are here to get you prepped and ready to cop Yeezys. As with every other Adidas Yeezy Boost release, these will be extremely limited, and pretty tough to get your hands on. We’re here to help give you the best chance at getting these exclusive kicks. We will be constantly updating the official stockists, raffles to enter, and what retailers will be carrying the shoes online on So keep up to date on the site for more info as it comes out, but for now, here are our ‘RSC best practices’ to get you in the best position possible before release day. For a complete list of retailers and stores carrying the Yeezy Boost 350, check here. Also, turn on mobile notifications for @Resell_Cartel on Twitter to get real-time updates on early links, drop times, sold out websites etc… We got your back. The VIP page will be updated and there will be a list of links and backdoors on The Plug page. Use that page in combination with Slack, and you will have a very high chance at copping.   NEW FOR PIRATE BLACKS: We now have a slack chat as you’re aware. This is where all the latest news and hottest info will be coming in. We are going to be very strict with Slack on release night and bans will be handed out to those who are spamming or being negative. The Slack is a free add on to your VIP, but it can be taken away. Make sure you’re following the channel rules. SLACK RULES: Backdoor Links Channel: Post NOTHING other than links in this channel. Misc: All random chat can be had here. Important Only: Only post information about Yeezys. Keep this chat VERY focused on Yeezys. Will be moderated strictly Music: Post what you’re bumpin! A live soundtrack for the night Preparation is Key: One of the biggest components to a successful release is obviously preparation and having your resources in place. For those of you getting acclimated to the “Hype Drops” there are a couple great free tools that can make a big difference. • Download the ‘Page Monitor’ extension for Google Chrome and start setting up Page Monitor notifications for boutique websites, ‘New Release’ pages, any sites carrying the sneakers. (Be careful not to monitor too many pages, you’ll start to get false alarms and overwhelm yourself with notifications.) • This may sound redundant, but make sure to schedule out your priority release times and set alarms in your phone/on your computer for drop times. With all the different retailers and stockists worldwide, it will inevitably get hectic come drop time, so it’s best to be prepared. • Using “Incognito Mode” on Google Chrome is also helpful when trying to cop these drops. By going incognito, your browser wont store any cookies, browsing history or form data, but it also helps getting through on certain busy sites and servers, like Yeezy Supply. However, this will sign you out of all accounts you’ve created (Adidas, Finish Line, etc…) This is very useful if you are getting 0 in your cart. When in doubt, go incognito! Teamwork Makes the Dream Work: If you’re reading this, you’re already on the right track. The Resell Cartel Family has been successful in copping every release because of consistent communication and teamwork. Sharing and communicating release times, product links and successful Add To Cart links are a major key to success. Forums like KanyeToThe and NikeTalk are full to the brim of people looking to collaborate. Be careful about who you invite in to your circle, and be prepared to put in some man-hours and research. Don’t expect to create or join a group and sit by while everyone else does all the leg work. Troll forums, check Twitter religiously, keep an eye on Instagram, Facebook groups, everything you can think of. Try, and Try Again: Persistency is a major key to success with these releases, and although that partially goes without saying, you have to keep trying. Keep trying to refresh product pages, keep copying & pasting those links until it shows up. Just because a certain link or page doesn’t show up on the first try, doesn’t mean it’s broken or patched. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again. That sounds cheesy as hell, but you’re not going to cop if you’re not dedicated to it. Multiples Need Multiples: If you’re going to try and cop multiple pairs from the same website, you’re going to need multiple Credit Cards (and multiple Addresses to be safe). and almost all other retailers limit their customers to purchase 1 pair per order, so you’ll need to be quick, have the credit card information on hand and the shipping and billing addresses readily available. A lot of successful Resell Cartel members have bought their pair first then used a second credit card to buy another. Ask your roommates, your parents, your ex-girlfriend if they’d be willing to let you use their card. It’s not hard to prove the resale value to people (just look up Yeezy Boost on eBay or Flight Club), and you could potentially make a lot of money, or maybe even wear a different pair of Yeezys every day of the week, if that’s your thing. How to cop multiple pairs without order cancellation: The key is to have either multiple credit cards (CC’s) or multiple shipping address if you plan on eating a lot on one site. Taking a users experience into example in where he had 3 CC’s and 3 Shipping the ideal ordering method would be this: CC1 orders and ships individual pairs to Address 1, Address 2, and Address 3. If you’re able to get more than 3 pairs and continue to order use CC2 and ship to Address 1, Address 2, or Address 3 and so on. If you’re limited on addresses, it is possible to use CC2 and ship to Address 1 and then continue to use CC3 and ship to Address 1. In short, after your first pair, use either a different address or CC, or a combination of the two to continue eating on that website. This method should be more than enough to avoid order cancellations and can safely bypass everything Adidas and other websites do to limit the shoes to one per customer. Using forwarding services We honestly have no feedback on forwarding service. They may or may not work and there is no way to tell which ones will be a success. Please use your discretion. Shopify Website Trick: There’s another sneaky trick that Resell Cartel members have feasted on in the past. This works well for Shopify websites only. • Add an item to your cart and leave it in the Checkout screen. • Open a new tab, add the Yeezys to your cart as well. • Then, go back to the original checkout screen, remove the first item, you’ll be left with your Yeezys and an easy checkout process. This method is definitely one of the easier, and more effective ways to ensure you cop once you’re on the site. As the release date gets closer, we will be updating the website with more information and sending VIP members exclusive, size specific, early links before release date. Stay tuned to the twitter, @Resell_Cartel, and good luck copping!
