If you are reading this article, it means that either you are strongly considering investing in one of the best cross-platform shoe bots for copping sneakers in the industry called Nike Shoe Bot (NSB), or you have already bought this app and are ready to deploy it.
To answer some critical questions first, we want to say that it can turn out as one of your best investments for buying rare items online, and, yes, it is far more than just a single brand bot. In fact, ironically, it is not currently recommended to use Nike Shoe Bot with Nike sites (like Nike web shoes) or the SNKRS app featuring sophisticated Nike anti bot technology (the bot does not guarantee successful copping here), though, NSB covers a whole range of other sites, platforms and brands (Footsites, Shopify, Supreme to name a few) that any other bot would envy.
As for UX/UI, NSB features an extremely intuitive user interface and amazes users with its simplicity. Also, the bundle comes with an invite to the NSB discord group that will keep you updated on new releases of sneakers, topical Nike Sneaker Bot instructions and can be worth a lot more than the retail price tag of NSB ($499 per year subscription) in itself.
In this tutorial we will try to answer all ‘how to use NSB bot’ type of questions and offer you advice on proper sneaker proxies that would give you an edge over other thousands of NSB users out there during copping.
Reasons to Buy Nike Shoe Bot?
Using Nike Shoe Bot makes a whole lot more sense now since it is an all-in-one sneaker bot (AIO bot) that pioneered the copping industry and has historically demonstrated a high level of success rate.
The primary reason for purchasing this bot is its platform support range. NSB can be used for over 100 sneaker sites. First, it supports Shopify, which already makes it a rather universal tool. Then, it also works on platforms like Footsites, Demandware, Supreme, Yeezy Supply, Adidas and much more.
Successful copping on all of these platforms has been proven multiple times and NSB’s Twitter boasts hundreds of tweets to prove its efficiency.
Originally, the bot was developed to target Supreme and Footsites, which explains why NSB has a great success rate on these platforms.
How To Use Nike Shoe Bot (NSB) – All the things you need to know
In this section we will cover all the items present in the NSB’s interface and their functions. But let’s start with the things that concern most of you: how to get the bot at a discounted price and how to easily install it on your system?
Buying Nike Shoe Bot
The good news about using NSB bot is that you will be able to buy a copy of the bot at any time. Unlike other bots with limited licenses, you will always be able to buy a Nike Shoe Bot for $499 a year. Getting this bot at a discount would mean joining a sneaker group for a group buy at $325. Also, a $75 will be available for you if you send a direct message to the NSB channel on Twitter.
Once you buy the bot, you will need to install it. Among the emails that you will get from NSB, you will have a Discord invite (token and key) and a downloadable file of the bot. With the emails you will be able to follow the Nike Shoe Bot instructions to connect your bot to your Discord and download it to your machine. Once you have a NSB connection to your Discord established, your bot will be initiated and bound exclusively to your system.
NSB Interface – Tasks
Now, let’s go through NSB’s interface tab-by-tab to find out how you can set up and use Nike Shoe Bot. It is always a good idea to understand the meaning and purpose of each section before you start using the bot.
The Task section represents the bot’s attempts to search and complete a check out. Basically, each of such “tasks” should result in a checkout to be reset later. So, logically speaking, the more tasks you run, the more chances you have to cop your rare pair of sneakers.
Click “Create Tasks” to generate a new task for copping. Here, you will need to enter info about your botting, like: the site you target, shoe size (or sizes), billing profile and proxy provider. Once the tasks are set, you will be able to start them based on the information from the NSB cook group on Discord.
Now it’s time to tell you how to use proxies in Nike Shoe Bot. In the tab called ‘Proxies’ you will be able to enter your freshly bought footsite proxies that will power your copping. Such IPs will help the bot override the hurdles on the way to checkout. The general advice about using proxies with NSB is to procure high-performing static residential proxies from a reliable proxy provider. Private proxies with fast pings will do a good job during copping. With them you will have higher chances of winning your desired kicks. In the next section we will tell you more on what proxies would be optimum to be used with NSB.
The information in this tab will be able to increase the number of your checkouts. You will be able to use several credit cards or Privacy cards here. Using multiple accounts increases the chances of successful checkouts.
Another tip here would be to alter your address info for different sessions. Even replacing “Street” with “St.” for your next order will reduce the cancellation rate significantly.
NSB Captcha Solver requires an active and aged Gmail account to be used for solving Captchas. This is important, since otherwise your bot will be detected and banned from the target site. To connect your Gmail to NSB, click “New Solver” and sign in with a Google account.
Also, the bot features one useful password function that will let you inject Nike passwords right in the tasks that you currently run.
In this section pick a channel that will have a website monitor. You can use the bot’s NSB monitor, or use the progress monitor of a cook group. Monitors allow crawling the sneaker websites to jump start the copping once the drop is active. Theoretically, this should automate the copping process completely, but in practice it rarely happens as expected.
In the Profile section you will be able to upgrade your NSB version once the latest update is out. You can trigger the manual update if it fails to do so automatically.
And, finally, Copped is the most cherished section. Everyone wants to see more items that you managed to log here representing your successfully copped sneakers with this bot.
