There was someone trolling the obey IG saying his bot and flipping service would buy most of them up.

I know there are bots but always think the problem is overestimated. If 100 people used bots that could buy 5 prints, no one else would ever score.

I think I got every 24x18 Fairey print that I was going for except for today, which was pretty much all of them. I had an easy captcha today and definitely expected to score. So it goes.

Got a call at 9:50 and spent the next 35 minutes on the phone. Then thought “oh yeah, there was drop today”. The phone even reminded me. Lol.

there might also be a record number on ebay, could it sell for less than cost :rolling:
Good luck actually having that sent to you and not cancelled tho 8)
I bought 3 Lewis prints on the Bay and all were refunded.
at least with the avg poster flipper back in the day would take your money move on, these fcukboy funko sneakerhead sh!ts bot 75%-80% of the drop, manipulate the market and the when you pay them their stupid asking prices they refund to sell at a higher fake market price. Good times

^ Yeah, seems that’s the new way. Though I never rush to buy anything and rarely do post drop. Prices these jokers were asking for that one seemed like a no brainer, so I bought 3 and I would have bought more, but the rest of the “cheap” ones were already sold, lol. I expected to be refunded too.

Yeah the new people buying all these up just pre list at like 150$ half Vance after they miss and the other half cancels the 150$ orders once they realize it’ll flip for more. It’s wack but predictable.

I am surprised this drop garnered that c much interest. I mean if snoop signed I would get it but pretty bland and I will buy most anything

Hello i m French si sorry for my english 😉
Can you tell me at what Time the print drop for you ?
Usually its right on Time at 10 ans i manage to get 6-7 drops on 10.
But since 2 months the prints are not getting online right on Time. I refresh many Times and i could see the print only after 30s at 10+30s. Is it the same for you ? Is it a new trick for bots ? Or i will not be able to grand one because i live in France and it take too Long Time for me to be connected to the serveur ?
Tks
Thomas.

Highly doubt a coder is clearing 100K for these people. If they are that intricate, there is a crew of people running those companies and overhead is a bitch. Definitely more money else where in the computer science world and higher paying and better companies to work for.

Also I'm thinking 0% chance shep uses a third party for shopping. Less money in the old pocket for obey taking that option.

It's quite normal for a print to drop a few seconds either side of the advertised time. If you are clicking F5 like a demon you should see the drop almost instantly if you have a decent connection. However, we are at a slight disadvantage (UK Here) if the servers are located in the USA, but I have seen plenty of EU folks score Obey in the past. Although, Obey drops are very popular so your competition is continually increasing making it harder to score. The market is flooded with Snoop Just Eat Dogg prints, so if you can get someone in the states to send you it at marked low value at a good shipping cost, you can escape high shipping/VAT fees which can sometimes offset the flip price.

the scale is more like 25 people buying as many as wanted- 25 copies or more

the failure rates are sky rocketing

not sure why the delivery addresses arent being used to ban - a simple access query would flush out huge terds :roll:

Yes, the last several drops have hit the store at almost exactly 10:00:30. Your connection isn’t slow.

100 of these just sitting on ebay and you all are worried about getting refunded on those orders?

150 if you include sold ones and listings with 2-5 available in 6-10 listings. How does someone score 5 when I can't score one?

When you wrote the code and support the product personally... 700k sales is pretty much 700k net.

Look I'm not just guessing, I've talked to this dude before and I've owned his bot. He makes serious coin.
