Use sticky port for copping sneakers. The sticky port system will assign you an IP for up to 10 minutes for residential proxies and up to 30 minutes for datacenter proxies.
Use rotating port for monitoring sneaker releases to avoid IP blocks. The rotating port system will automatically rotate your IP address.
You can specify proxy location and download the list of sticky ports.
Instead of the usual IP:port format, simply use endpoint:port that we provide in the dashboard.

For monitoring you can use rotating port. In this case, there is no need for a list, the system will automatically rotate IP with each request.
Endpoints are like gateways to IP pools. Our system uses endpoints to filter and automatically assign you an IP from the selected IP pool.
If your bot does not accept endpoint format you can check IP:Port format article to convert it into IP address.
There are two types of authentication. Check the Proxy authentication article.
When using user:pass authentication, most bots use the following format:
When using whitelisted IP, simply do the following:
For smooth experience make sure to test authentication before release.
Generally residential proxies deal better with anti-bot defense but are slower.
datacenter IPs can be identified and blocked by anti-botting systems but are way faster.
There's no correct answer and variety is the key. Some sites work better with residential and others - with datacenter proxies.
You can quickly setup proxies on the Browser and visit the website in question.
Most of the time it is bot's failure to bypass anti-bot defense systems during the release that turns into big L. Different bots work well on one sites and not so well on others.
