Definition of Sniper Bots
Sniper bots are automated bots that monitor time-based activity and submit information at the very last moment, removing the opportunity for other people to respond to that action. The most common example of sniper bots’ use is last-second bidding on auction items on sites such as eBay.
What are Sneaker Bots?
Sneaker bots are designed to automate the process of buying limited-edition sneakers. Automation enables sneaker bot operators to complete orders extremely quickly, outpacing human capability. Sneaker bots are used to purchase as many pairs of limited edition sneakers as possible, taking them out of the hands of real customers.
Bot operators take advantage of an eCommerce website’s code to discover what stock is available. Sneaker bots mimic human activity during the purchase process.
