Sneaker bots continually monitor eCommerce sites for in-demand stock. The moment the stock becomes available, the bot adds it to their cart and heads to the checkout.
Bot operators run these bots on specialist “Sneaker” servers and devices, using proxies to mask their identities.
There are a variety of sneaker bots available on the market, including:
Monitor bots are built to check sites for stock availability, alerting their operator as soon as a new item is added.
Often referred to as All In One Bots (AIO), these bots automate the entire buying journey on a site, checking for the stock, adding to basket and checking out.
Add to cart services
Add to cart services automate most of the purchase journey, but instead of alerting the operator when stock becomes available, bots alert their operators once an item is in the basket, before manually checking out.
Account creator bots
Also known as Fake Account Creation, these bots automate the creation of accounts.
