    I'm interested in getting a bot made for basically auto buying product on a release date. Question is what would make the bot the best/fastest? Theres already competition out there but theirs is a chrome plugin, im wondering what would be the best way, stand alone bot, a hosted/server side bot, or another browser extension?

    All the bot does is goes to a website and purchases and item once it launches. It usually sells out within minutes if not seconds from release.

    Zennoposter's bot creation suite can be set up on a VPN (server), and monitor the site. Then when it detects the sale, it'll go to the next phase (purchase).

    You can also look into UBot (I don't have any experience).

    If you do hire a programmer, be aware that it might be a headache if you need any changes made. With your own automated software you can do it on the fly!

    I dont think that would cut it. Probably too slow.

    You don't know what you're talking about :)
    Just set your own refresh time to have it check every X sec.

    I've successfully built bots like this before, with Zenno.

    You're 100% right. I dont. Now question, would that be the best route? better or equal to browser extension?

    No custom "bot" extension, basically a bot but is an extension that does the refreshing of site looking for sale and then adds to cart/buys

    I see. Well imacros is a browser extension, and can refresh a page and go through checkout (amongst other things). It need to be 'taught' this, as every website's checkout has various stages/steps in the process.

    I have no idea about Best Route.
    But it sure is the way I would go.
    I would recommend Zenno in front of uBot (I own both) if you're going to automate tasks for yourself. I have no experience with browser extensions.
    But I don't see why that would be any better. If you want to, you can see both does tools as "extensions".
    They both have a browser engine and can click buttons or whatever you decide to learn it

    The prices would any of the following if you choice to use zenno.
    Buy the cheapest license yourself and build it, require a bit of learning, $87.
    Buy it and have someone create the template for you, $87 + $X in work.
    Buy a template using ZennoBox, $10 fee + $X in work.

    I would recommend to buy it, as it could be used for other tasks as well.
