Task Overview

Monitor mode

Normal mode

Launch mode

  • Which Mode do I use?

    • Monitor mode will only monitor and ping your watch tasks when they detect the item you're monitoring is in stock

    • Normal mode is to be used for normal checkout flow

    • Launch mode is to be used for scheduled releases aka launch

  • What does Profile mean?

    • Select a Profile you want to use and that profile information will be used when checking out items

      • 3DS is not supported, use payment cards without 3DS required

  • What type of Proxies should I use?

    • You need to use high quality proxies, usually ISPs but can also use resis. Using low quality proxies will cause Akamai related errors

      • If you're looking for proxies, check out Stella Proxies for high quality ISP and Residential proxies

  • What is a Product URL?

  • What are the Monitor Types?

    • Normal is the default monitor type using one endpoint

    • API is an alternative monitor type using another endpoint

      • You can create two monitor mode tasks per product and use both Normal and API

  • What is Color?

    • This field is optional but if your product has multiple colors you can type the name of the color. One color per task. Color will be random if you don't specify one. For example White

  • What is Size?

    • Select Random for One Size products. If the product has multiple sizes you can pick the size in the dropdown list

  • What Delays should I use?

    • Delay to run is anywhere around 4500

  • What is Reset Delay?

    • After your Monitor Mode task picks up a restock, it'll use your reset delay before monitoring again. So if you have a Reset Delay of 60000, it'll wait 60 seconds before attempting to monitor for the item again. We recommend having a high reset delay to prevent any spamming of your tasks being pinged

  • What is a good QTY to use?

    • It's best to check with your cookgroup since different items have different quantity limits

  • What is Watch Task? box?

    • Using watch task will help your proxies encounter less proxy bans and less proxy errors overall. Using a watch task essentially means you want your task to rely on other sources to monitor, in this case your monitor mode task will ping the watch task when a restock has happened

      • If you check this box, your task will wait for a monitor mode task to ping it then it'll proceed to add item to cart and checkout

      • If this box is unchecked, your task will monitor the sku, add to cart and checkout

  • What is Use Rakuten? box?

    • Follow the Rakuten guide to set it up and check this box to earn cashback on eligible purchases
