Website – This is where you select the desired shopify site you wish to run. Your custom added sites via the shopify manager will also appear in this list. If you’d like to bot a custom site that you haven’t added to the bot, use the ‘Other’ option.
Shipping rate – This is where you’ll select your shipping rates generated in the Shopify Manager. Please refer to this section of the manual for how and when to use them.
Task Type – This is the type of resource you’ll be using to checkout your desired item:
Direct Link – This is the URL of the product page you want to bot. This is also where you’d input early links provided by your cookgroup.
Keywords – Keywords are entered in the format below. Separate keywords with a SPACE only, separate different search terms by placing them on a NEW LINE. DO NOT USE COMMAS, PLUS OR MINUS SYMBOLS.
The positive keyword box is used to specify which words a product must match in order to be added to cart. If any keywords in your search term are missing from the product page title, the item will not be added to cart. Therefore you should not be too specific with your keywords
The negative Keyword box is used to specify which products the bot should ignore if it is contained in the product title. For example, below I have set task keywords to only add to cart products containing the words “Yeezy Boost 350” or “Yeezy Boost”, but ignore any product also containing the number “700”.
For sites which load and release 1 or a couple products at a time (i.e. DSM E-Flash) you can use #any# as a keyword and the bot will cart the first product it finds. This is great for times where you are unsure of keywords. However, for obvious reasons this should be used with care (alongside price check is ideal) and NEVER used on sites with many products loaded.
Variants – These are random strings of numbers that are unique to a specific size of a specific product. An example of a variant is “191532351569”, which corresponds to size 8.5 of this product. Variants are the fastest way to checkout, so ensure to use them where possible.
Test keywords – You can quickly test your keywords to make sure they don’t conflict with and pickup any previously loaded, unwanted products on the site you’re running.
Checkout – This is the payment method that will be used at checkout. Unless unavailable, you should always prioritise using ‘Credit Card (Auto)’ on Shopify as this much faster than PayPal and more likely to result in successful checkout. There is no 3DS on Shopify so Europeans, you can use any card.
Login – For sites where login is mandatory (or sites where it isn’t but you wish to use them anyway) this is where you can enter the login credentials. If you have setup your login pools then you can easily add logins by using the pink arrow key.
Mode – This is the Shopify mode your task will use, they each have their own use cases, strengths and weaknesses.
API – This is the fastest task mode, which utilises the API of the shopify site you are botting. API is the ideal mode for restocks on all sites (where antibot has been disabled) and droptime on smaller scale stores such as skateshops. This mode is however affected by both antibot and API key disabling by a store. Therefore on sites where antibot is present or expected to be, you should not use this mode. If ever in doubt, run some Human mode tasks too.
Human – This mode is our go-to for when antibot is present or expected on a site at droptime. Antibot’s usage by stores is increasing and thus, so is the need to use this mode. Examples of times to use Human mode include (but are not limited to) Kith Mondays/Collaboration/Shoe drops, DSML/NY E-Flash, Palace, Cncpts, Undefeated and Juice Store. These sites will often disable antibot within an hour or two after drop, from which you can then switch to API, but it can persist for much longer if the store chooses.
Human (Preload) – This mode is only available on select stores (e.g. Kith & Cncpts). This mode is the same as Human, except it allows you to pre-solve checkpoint captchas before droptime, giving you a speed advantage of being able to go straight to checkout once the item drops! These tasks can be started at any point, and once checkpoint captcha is loaded and detected (usually 1-2 mins before drop) your tasks will begin to prompt you to solve captchas in your solver windows. Note: recently stores have been increasingly loading checkpoint at droptime and in these instances, the speed benefits of Human (Preload) mode are sadly lost.
Manual – This mode will perform all stages of checkout up until payment, where the bot will then send the checkout payment link via Discord if you have set that up. You can also access the checkout link by right clicking the task on the dashboard and selecting ‘Checkout url’. This mode can be handy on sites with custom payment gateways for example, which cannot be botted with Credit Card (Auto). This mode is however still affected by antibot, and so Human mode should still be your go-to for those drops.
Quantity – This field is how many of the item you’re botting will be added to cart. Most stores will either disallow or cancel orders containing more than 1 of a hyped item however, so we typically recommend leaving this field blank, which defaults to 1.
Discount Code – If the store you’re running has an active discount code, you can add it here and Eve will attempt to apply it on any item the task carts. Note that some items may be excluded from said discount and will be checked out at full price.
Password – If a store has a password page up and are releasing by telling their customers the password, you can add it here to gain access to the store. This does not need to be used on stores such as DSM E-Flash and Palace, who take down password page themselves at droptime.
