In order to start creating Snipes USA tasks, you need to create a new task group. This can be done by navigating to the "Tasks" tab in the bot and clicking on "New Task Group +". From there, name your group to a name of your choice and choose
Snipes in the store list.
Example of Creating A Task Group:
From there, you will want to use the product PID provided by our release guides or a third-party. Using a direct link will not work. The PID consists of the product sku in the title of the product.
The PID (monitor input) for this link would be
Next, you will want to navigate to the "+" icon to create a task. Upon clicking on that icon, a menu will be prompted to choose your profiles, error delay, task quantity, checkout proxy, and sizes. Fill out all the boxes with your desired information and click "create" to create your task(s).
After that, you will want to choose your monitor proxy list. Lastly, you will want to choose your delay. The default monitor delay is 3500 and keep it at that for the entire drop.
How To Use Variants:
Variants for Snipes USA work very similar to Shopify and Hibbett variants in the sense that they are faster than using using the PID methods. Variants will often be provided by staff, or can be found in third-parties. In order to setup variants, you need to setup the task groups too "Variant List." This can be done by navigating to the setting tab for the task group (the three little dots).
Next, you will want to click on "Toggle Variants" located at the bottom of the settings pop-up. Note: toggling variants will delete all existing tasks.
Setting Up Variants:
Once in variant mode, you will want to add the product PID (this is also the same one if you are running just PID). Next, you want to add your variants to the variants box. If running multiple variants, make sure each variant is on its own line.
Creating Variant Tasks:
Next, you want to go to create a task like normal. New to the task creation pop-up is the variant box. When you click on it, it will list all the variants that you have listed in the monitoring section of the bot. From there, you can either choose which variant you want to run or you can click "One Per Profile" or "All Per Profile". One per profile will assign one variant to a profile. All per profile will create a task for each variant for each profile. For example: if you have 7 variants, and 2 profiles, it will create 14 tasks.
When using variants, you must select a drop time. The drop time should be set to the release time of the shoe in your local machine time zone. So if the shoe releases at 10AM EST but your PC is in the PST time zone, you should set the time to 7AM PST.
After adding the time, choose the mode you want to run. For more information on the modes, refer to the Fast vs. Safe section below.
Fast vs. Safe Mode:
There are two modes for Snipes USA: fast and safe mode.
It is recommended to run BOTH fast and safe modes. Fast mode has a task limit of 100 tasks per copy while safe mode has no set task limit.
Start fast mode tasks 1 hour before the drop.
Start safe mode tasks 3-5 minutes before the drop.
Captchas will be needed for some of your tasks so we recommend using a third-party solution like Capmonster or 2Captcha to solve them. For information on how to set those up, refer to these guides.
