1, Increase CPU usage for NIKE SNKRS

Your mobile phone is a computer essentially. A computer has limited memory and therefore it has to prioritize tasks. If you have a bunch of applications opened up at the same time, your phone’s memory gets depleted and this makes your phone slow. So if your phone gets lazy then it won’t be able to participate in the SNKRS raffle effectively. It’s just as simple as that.

So how do you counter this? You start by making sure that your phone is not running any other applications in the background. For iPhone users, the process is as easy as swiping up on the home screen and then swiping all the applications up to close them. This frees up space in your phone’s memory and it can focus on dedicating its entire efforts to the Nike SNKRS application.

Even a delay of a second during the raffle can mean that you won’t be able to cop your favorite sneaker. Therefore, while this tip might seem common sense, it’s pretty damn effective.


2, Internet Speed

Most of us either use LTE or our own home Wifi but do we really know for sure which is faster? What if your LTE is faster than your Wifi but you keep using your WiFi for raffles? Could this mean that you’re losing out on sneakers simply because you don’t have the most optimum network at your disposal? It certainly could.

Therefore, to check which network is faster, head over to SpeedTest.net and check out for yourself. The networks will be measured on three criteria – Ping, Download Speed, and Upload Speed. You want to choose the network (for Nike SNKRS) that has the lowest ping and highest Download/Upload speeds.


3, Nike Membership

We all hate shipping charges. It doesn’t matter how insignificant of an amount they might seem, we just despise paying extra. And if you’re a reseller, your customers want the best price possible. Therefore, the lower the cost for you, the greater the value for them.

Therefore, head over to Nike.com/Member and register yourself. Becoming a member has it perks such as FREE SHIPPING. So if you’re purchasing the latest Jordan or Dunk, you don’t have to pay anything above the retail price. That sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me.


4, Optimum Payment Method for Nike SNKRS

Why does a different payment even matter? Well, it does for Nike. And the best payment method for Nike is PayPal, here’s why. When you have a Paypal account, this gives Nike the assurance that you’re an actual human being behind the account. You’re not some bot trying to hack the system and cop a sneaker. Apple Pay unfortunately does not have the same features and you don’t want to lose out on a sneaker just because of a silly payment method. Therefore, switch to Paypal and make your life easier.


5, Gender Option on Nike SNKRS

Now, this is a bit controversial. But I’ve seen it happen myself. Most of the accounts on Nike SNKRS are male and due to the cluster, Nike tends to favor female accounts a bit more. If you set your account’s gender to female, this gives you that increased chance of copping SNKRS. Nike wants to be inclusive and therefore female accounts are able to check out quickly.

Moreover, if you switch your account’s gender, Nike doesn’t even ask for any further verification. So there’s really no harm in switching your gender on Nike SNKRS.


6, Researching Drops for Nike SNKRS

If you’re a reseller, then this tip is for you. StockX will be your best friend. Before a sneaker drop, what you should be doing is looking at the shoe listing on StockX and check out the Bid and Ask prices. What you’re primarily looking for is, what sizes are in high demand. Now if a certain size range, for e.g., 9-11 are being sold on StockX then you know there’s a greater supply for them which makes the resale price competitive and therefore reduces profits.

So what you want to do is figure out what sizes aren’t available and then purchase those sizes from SNKRS. When you’re the only seller with a specific size, this makes the buyer desperate to appeal to your offer rather than counter it. Sneaker reselling is a business and you have to tap the untapped market in order to get ahead, therefore researching comes in handy for that.
