Task Setup Guide for Alternate

On the tasks page select create tasks.

Select Alternate from the drop down.


Product ID/PID

You can find a PID on Alternate by locating the URL of your desired product for example.

You can easily locate the PID by looking just after product/ for example the PID would be 1685590 you can enter this into the "Product PID" section in your task creation.


Create a task

To create a task, click the green "Add Task" button in the bottom left. 
Here you'll have the following options:


Select your profile here.

Alternate is less strict when it comes to one checkout per profile/card so you are able to checkout multiple per profile.

Checkout Mode

There are two types of Checkout mode's available. 

Both mode's will automatically checkout the desired item via whichever payment method that you selected. 

The fast mode can be significantly faster than the normal mode, therefore we recommend that you run a mix of both. 

Payment Mode

There are three types of payment modes available. These are PayPal, PayPal Express and Wire Transfer.  

The Paypal option will send you a webhook that will allow you to checkout the item manually. You will need the extension installed for this.

The Wire Transfer option will checkout the item, but you will need to transfer the funds once invoiced.

You must have the Carnage Bot extension installed in order successfully access the links in your webhook.

Proxy List

Here you want to select the proxies that you would like to use. We recommend that you use a mixture of datacentre and sticky residential proxies to ensure the best likely-hood of success. 

We would not recommend that you run any more than two tasks proxyless.

We recommend a proxy to task ratio of 3:1 this is to help you avoid getting your proxies banned.


Below we recommend to use the following delays:

Initial Item(s) release delays to use - 1,000

Restock delays to use - 15,000

Please checkout these two pages that cover Monitor tasks and Task Timers.

If you are using proxies, you may want to increase/decrease the delays depending on your setup.
