Ever since 2006, Shopify has been growing and growing, and it shows no sign of giving out. Nowadays, most of the brands we love and adore have moved to or started on Shopify. Hence all the buzz around Shopify bots is increasing.

What are Shopify Bots?

A Shopify bot is a software that can secure items from all Shopify websites before items get sold out. It’s pretty similar to a sneaker bot, and you can use it to get other items too, not just sneakers. However, the majority of people who use Shopify bots use them for their ability to cop limited sneakers. It’s a useful bot to have especially if you’re getting into sneaker reselling.

The Pros 👍

Getting yourself a Shopify bot means a lot. Most importantly, it means that you will have access to new grounds on which hyped sneakers will drop regularly, especially if they’re part of a collaboration. Your bot will be able to support many websites like Off White, Dover Street Market, Kith, Bape, Bodega, Concepts (where they Kyrie 5 just dropped), YeezySupply, Undefeated, and more. You’ll basically increase the chance that you cop a limited sneaker at retail price. Another pro is that you’ll dive into a new world of streetwear, not just sneakers. This way, you’ll be able to complete your look and flex oh so subtly, not like a hypebeast, but like you belong to the culture.

The Cons 👎

If you’re only interested in Shopify sites, then this won’t matter to you. But to most sneakerheads, the main disadvantage of using a Shopify bot, or the main reason they don’t opt for solely a Shopify bot, is that it restricts you only to Shopify sites. Whereas there are many more sites you might want to buy your sneakers from like Nike, Adidas, Footsites (like Foot Locker, Champs, Eastbay, etc), and mesh sites. Luckily, all-in-one bots also pass as Shopify bots since they support a wide range of Shopify sites, as well as main sneaker websites, footsites, etc.

Popular (and available) Shopify Bots

While there are many Shopify bots, not all of them are in-stock. Using cop.supply, you can see the bots that are available now.

Conclusion

The smart way to go about this is to get yourself an all in one bot that supports the Shopify sites that you’re interested in copping from. But regardless of whether you want a Shopify bot or whether you’d opt for an all in one bot, Shopify site support is vital to have under your belt. Especially if you want to improve your chances of buying limited items for your personal collection or if you’re running a reselling business. Godspeed. 🔥
