Purchasing Sneaker DC Proxies

Our sneaker DC proxies are available in four plans - 1, 30, 60, and 90 days. You can select the exact number of proxies you need in each plan. By purchasing a larger number of proxies for a longer period, you can take advantage of our discounts that reduce the starting price significantly (to as low as $1.80 per IP).

Select Sneaker DC Proxies from the list on the left (1) and click the Create new order button (2).


In the new window, select the plan (3), the location for your proxies (4), the number of proxies (5), and enter the URLs of websites you plan to use your proxies on (6). If you need your order extended automatically, tick the Auto extend order box (7). The system will calculate the total price, which includes discounts based on the plan and the number of proxies (8). Click Confirm (9).


In the new window, you’ll get an order overview. You need to select the payment method here (10). You can use your account balance or one of the available payment methods.

Note: Cryptocurrency payments are only available from the Deposit page. Click Pay (11).


You’ll get an order confirmation containing all the relevant information and the status of your order.


Once the order is confirmed, you’ll get an email. You can return to the Sneaker DC Proxies page and check your order status at the bottom.


As soon as the status changes to Confirmed, you can start using your proxies.

Once you purchase a plan, you also have the option to renew it for 1, 30, 60, or 90 days by clicking the Extend button in the dashboard.


Choosing to renew an active order gets you additional discounts (5% off with the 60-day plan and 10% off with the 90-day plan). These discounts stack with the existing ones.


When you extend an order, you will still be able to use the time remaining from the original one. For example, if you decide to extend an order for 60 days while you still have 15 days of use left, your proxies will be available to you for the full duration (75 days in this case).

If you require a custom solution for your project, please contact our sales team.

How to Set Up Automatic Order Extensions

Also, you can test our sneaker DC proxies at a minimal cost by purchasing a 1-day plan (which is non-refundable).

How to Configure IPRoyal Sneaker DC Proxies

Before you start using your proxies, you need to set them up. While sneaker DC proxies are pre-configured and ready for use as soon as your order is confirmed, you can still customize them. Here’s a specific example.

1. Let’s say we want to change the credentials for our proxies and set a custom username and password for each IP. We can do that in the Change proxies credentials section. Type in the new username and password in the appropriate fields, or you can let the system generate a password for you by checking the Random password option. Make sure both the username and the password only contain letters and numbers. Once you’re done, click the Change credentials button.

2. Once you’re done, the change will be reflected in the Product info section.

4. Finally, you can customize the format of your proxy credentials to suit your needs. Select the desired format and your proxy list will update automatically, so you can copy your proxy credentials straight to your tools.

5. If you ever decide to remove custom credentials from your proxies, you can do it manually for each IP as described above or reset all of them by clicking the Reset credentials button. Again, you can use this feature once per hour.


Do sneaker DC proxies support the IP:PORT authentication/whitelist option?

Sneaker DC proxies only support the username and password authentication method. Only our Royal residential proxies support IP whitelisting along with username and password authentication methods.

What is the thread limit on your proxies?

Our sneaker DC proxies have no thread limits as long as these threads come from different IP addresses. Our residential proxies also support unlimited threads and you can use them from different IP addresses simultaneously.

If a proxy gets banned before my 30-day plan expires, can you replace it?

We can replace your proxies within 24 hours after your order is confirmed. Once this period is over, the proxies you bought can’t be replaced. We can’t guarantee that your proxies will remain unbanned for the period you purchased them. Users occasionally get banned from websites, and we can’t control this. The proxies we provide are unbanned at the time of purchase. However, we’re not responsible for what happens to them after the initial 24 hours.

What is the difference between sneaker DC proxies and datacenter proxies?

Both sneaker and datacenter proxies offer unlimited bandwidth, same location support, and similar pricing. However, our sneaker DC proxies come from a private proxy pool with unique IPs optimized for sneaker and retail websites.

How long can you use each sneaker DC proxy?

The sneaker DC proxy you’re using remains the same and is reserved for you as long as your sneaker DC proxy plan is active. If you decide to extend it, the IP address remains the same.
