Sneaker bot: How it can help you get your dream sneakers
The new age of shopping is here…and it’s going to be around for a long time. Sneaker bot is used by many people to quickly grab their own pair of shoes before anyone else can. Savvy techies and entrepreneurs who sell shoes in the resale market all use this technology to grab a pair of the shoes they wish to own. It can really help to grab those shoes quickly.
What makes a Bot work?
A sneaker bot takes advantage of the technology that many retail stores use to check that their website is running smoothly. This programming tool is called acceptance testing and it’s used to check on any possible kinks in a store’s system before releasing a new product to the public. This programming uses a code and some of them are very complex, made up of many numbers. However, some codes only use ten numbers and this is where the sneaker bots come in.
The most common tool used for writing these codes is known as selenium, and this is what the sneaker bots use. This tool allows sneaker bots to gain “backdoor” access to the store’s website and completes the checkout process faster than any human. This makes getting sneakers VERY easy for many, but also VERY difficult for others.
How Sneaker Bots can Help You
Because bots work so quickly, it’s easy to see why many people resort to using them. Grabbing a pair of your favorite (or the most popular) kicks is a struggle. If you decide to use a sneaker bot, it’s more likely that you’ll get a pair or your favorite shoes, than if you don’t.
One of the benefits of a sneaker bot is that they continue to work even if the retail store website crashes from the many orders being processed. This relieves you of the stress of sitting in front of your computer and pushing countless buttons.
Once you enter in the style and size of the shoes you want, the bot will continuously attempt to grab that specific pair for you from the store you’ve chosen. This is done because the bot is automatically linked to many of the retail stores such as Footlocker, Pacsun, ChampSports, DSM, YeezyStore, Concepts, just to name a few. The bot will continuously attempt to add the shoes you want to a sales cart. Once this is done, you’re notified by SMS/Email and checked out so that your purchase is placed. All you have to do is check to see if you got the shoes.
Now that you know how a sneaker bot works, you can attempt to use one. It’s the next step in online shopping and many people are using them to make their lives less stressful. However, this is easier said than done. There are many different bots out there so make sure you do your research and choose the right one. Otherwise, you may spend your money only to come up empty handed in the end.
