Are you having trouble copping?
Well, this guide will help you achieve that goal!
Note: This guide does not guarantee success. It will just help you increase the chance of purchasing different items with Phantom.
Tip 1: Understand Phantom and know what you are doing.
This tip is very important. Without knowledge of how to utilize the bot, you basically have no chance of copping. We highly suggest carefully reading all of the guides we have and getting to know how the bot works through trial and error. Furthermore, we suggest getting familiar with the unique aspects of each site and the proxies that work on each one respectively, as this knowledge is imperative to using the bot effectively. This guide will help, click here. Also, play around with the bot and see how your set up performs every drop. The guides on Phantom are all here.
Tip 2: Understanding Proxies and Servers
Proxies are extremely important and you HAVE to use them! Any time you plan to run more than one task, USE PROXIES.
The proxies that work best vary from site to site, so it's important to know which proxies to buy and how to budget your spending. For example, on a site like Yeezy Supply, it makes much more sense to spend $40 on a reliable 2 gigabyte residential plan than it does to spend that much on say 30 datacenter proxies. This is because you'll be able to run hundreds of tasks using the residential plan, versus a maximum of 30 with the datacenter plan. Since Yeezy Supply uses the waiting room system, having more tasks increases your chances of getting through and hopefully checking out. Of course, not every site is like this, so it's important to figure out what works best for you on each site.
Additionally, we highly suggest using more than one proxy provider. If one provider fails, then you'll have another one as back up and you still have a chance of copping. It's also important to test a few of your proxies and see what speeds you're getting - recommend speeds are here.
Servers are also very important and can massively improve your chances of success, especially if your PC and/or internet suffer from slow speeds. From allowing more running tasks to drastically increasing your proxy speeds, servers can be crucial to scaling your setup.

Tip 3: Practice and set reasonable expectations
It sounds cliché, but this tip can really improve your success. The more drops you run for, the more experience you will gain, and there's simply no substitute for trial and error. Know your setup inside and out and pay attention to how it performs every drop. Regardless of whether you get the results you want, think about the things that went wrong and strive to improve them for the next drop. Always double-check the guides and make sure you didn't make any careless mistakes.
We've established that practice is important, but being realistic about the outcome of drops is equally so. Keep in mind that for every drop, there are tens of thousands of bot users all going for the same relatively limited item. And when you account for the fact that many users are running hundreds to thousands of tasks, it's easy to see why highly profitable releases tend to be difficult. Accept the fact that not every release will yield success. Don't get upset after one drop just because you didn't cop. There are always releases to run for and keep your head up. After every drop, ask yourself, "How can I improve?" and actually try to improve instead of defaulting to blaming the bot. Of course, there will always be room for improvement - not only for you but also for us (the bot).
Tip 4: Join a cook group.
What is a cook group?
A cook group is a community that helps botters and resellers, like you, to cop shoes with release information and help, tips, guides, support, monitors, and much more! It is really important to join a cook group, especially if you are new to botting and reselling.
If you are looking for a cook group, we highly recommend Dawn, Ghost AIO's very own cook group.
