Task Setup Guide for Otto
In this article, we will cover how to set-up your tasks for an Otto release.
Create a task
To create a task, open your tasks.csv file within the Carnage folder.
Here you'll need to complete the following columns:
In order to run the Otto module, input Otto here.
For this column you need to enter the URL of the item that you would like to purchase.
In this instance, the URL for our item would be the link above.
This module supports the option of selecting the quantity of the item that you would like to checkout. If you leave this empty, then the default quantity will be 1.
Here you can input your desired price range. You need to enter this in a MIN-MAX format. For example, if you wanted to checkout something between the values of $400 and $700, then you would enter 400-700 here.
Here you need to insert a valid profile name. If there is no default address loaded on your Otto account, then your profile will be used during the checkout process, therefore make sure that your details are correct. Additionally you should not use any of these characters in your profiles: ß,Ö,Ä,Ü. Otto also auto corrects addresses, therefore you are unable to j1g for this module.
Additionally, if there is a default address loaded on your account, then you must fill in the Store ID column with the zipcode used in that address.
For this module you must use an account. Input your log-in details under this column in a email:password format.
There are three payment methods available. These are PayPal, GiroPay and Vorkasse.
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.
You must have the Carnage Bot extension installed in order successfully access the Paypal link.
The GiroPay option is a payment method that is linked to your current account. Payments are debited directly from this and the goods value of a return is credited there.
The Vorkasse option allows you to transfer the amount within seven calendar days. The goods are reserved for you until then. The amount to be paid consists of the value of the goods and the shipping and service costs incurred.
You can find more information in regards to these payment methods here.
There are four modes available for this module. These are Default, Delete, Monitor and Clear mode.
The Default mode will checkout your desired item via your chosen payment method.
The Delete mode will delete the account, this is useful as Otto can sometimes ban you address if you own too many accounts.
The Monitor mode allows you to monitor specific items. Once the task picks up that the item has come back into stock, then Carnage will start all additional tasks that you have prepared.
With Monitor mode, you can use either the PID, URL or Keywords (for example "+PS5;+Digital;-Joystick") Here, if every positive (+) Keyword matches the product restocking, then your tasks will start. However, if one of the negative (-) keywords are present within the product title, then the tasks wont start. You can therefore use this method to ensure that the bot only starts on the products that you want.
Monitor mode will use a small amount of data in order to keep your Otto session valid.
Once the monitor task detects stock, it will then begin the checkout process.
The clear mode will simply clear your cart. The task will not proceed any further than this.
If you are using an account with a default address loaded onto it, then you must fill in this column with the zipcode used within that address.
This module supports the use of discount codes. You can enter the code within this column.
Here you can set your desired Retry / Monitor delay. You can write this in a Retry-Monitor format. For example, we recommend using 3000-3000 for an initial release.
If you are using proxies, you may want to increase/decrease the delays depending on your setup.
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.
