    I was looking for a comment bot (for a special site, not youtube or anything, but similar) and couldn't find any online, not even for sale. So I started inquiering.

    I found this very legit guy who agreed to make me a fully personalized comment bot (incl. account creation) for 100$

    is this a good price for such a bot?

    yes, if it satisfies your need. you must respect the hard work done by the coder as you've mentioned that its not easily available.

    Is the application multithreaded ? Does it support proxy ? Tell us more...

    For a single threaded bot 100USD would be an ok price.

    Are you able to PM me the website, would like to see how secure their reg page is.

    It includes email creation, account creation, account verification, posts comments on multiple pages and categories, it's not multi threaded and doesn't support proxies.

    I haven't found any bot for this particular website so.... that's why i'm ready to pay the 100$ but it seems much doesn't it?

    then other people say they wouldn't do it for less than 200$

    the guy finished the bot in 1 day already

    Well it really depends on how hard the site is, if the site is not very hard to bypass then 50~100 USD is about right, ofc it also depends on the developer, some people will not work for less then their hourly fee, etc...

    But for a non-threaded bot with no proxy support to do what you mentioned above is not such a hard work, 100USD sounds about right depending of what I mentioned in the previous phrase.

    Sounds suspicious ... $100 is about an hours worth of work for any decent programmer. A simple uBot may go for $100 or so.

    Zeno, at an early date I would have said the same thing, but on online job sites you can see all sort of things specially from indian's workers.

    But now I guess the right term is that it really depends on the developer, where they live, and other factors such as knowledge, diplomas, life...

    For a single thread, 100$ is ok, not wise to pay. You should have searched for more people. And could have compared their prices.
