    Hi there I am looking for someone to build me a bot for Etsy. I am new to the site and cannot PM anyone. A PM from you would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    There are a plenty of coders here they will probably help you out. If no one helps you i can help you.

    I don't have much time but i can try. I'm coding in visual basic.

    I think there are a few on here that are familiar with coding for Etsy. Just need to lure them out.

    I'd be hitting up Fatboy for this and not looking back. He knows his bot stuff!

    Had a few offers but really need someone that codes for Mac or can build an auto-buy bot to run in virtual box. Still can't send PMs.

    I had thought this could be built using iMacro but maybe I was mistaken.

    I can build you a php/ruby on rails/nodeJS script that will run in a remote server and do whatever you need, just need the specs.

    Etsy proactively pursues any and all good bots made for Etsy. I have used 2 good bots over the past 3 years and none of them lasted for more than 2 months. Etsy is successful in getting them shut down. Good luck

    I'm thankful since, it means legitimately good sellers stand a chance there.

    Sorry, But how actually are they shutting it down?? Are they Updating themselves or they directly sue the company for creating such bots??

    They are going beyond C&D's.... they actually start discoveries and really bring the heat. It's a shame, there was a product called "Betsy Bot" that was really killer and now he claims to have sold out to Treasury.club.

    I was using another one 6 months ago and he got pressed hard by Etsy and he stopped selling it.

    Proves ETSY doesnot tolerates that, better to get a Custom coded and not do it public..

    Favoriting targeted items (like the things you sell) is good but works best (I have sold tens of thousands of dollars worth on Etsy) is doing a keyword search on Etsy and then sending that person a targeted message.

    I use a private bot that does keyword searches and then scoops up BUYERS that have left reviews for items they have purchased. I then send them a targeted message like "I see you bought KEYWORD a little while ago..... you should check out my KEYWORD"

    Works like a charm, I get sales off of Etsy every day from doing this

    Man Jim, you're all over the place in the IM world haha! How are you selling the actual items though? My best assumption is dropshipping, unless you actually are into making hand crafted stuff. That's a pretty good idea though, searching the buyers and directly messaging them to your product!
