External sources are tipsters that operate outside the smartbet.io platform and usually distribute their picks with conventional methods, like email.
Support for such sources is implemented by having your bot monitor the email address in which you are receiving emails from external sources for picks. When such an email is received the bot will extract the pick either directly from the email message, or by visiting a web page if the pick details are not available in the email.
We can add support for tipsters that operate in already supported platforms: blogabet.com, pyckio.com, betonsuccess.com.
For other platforms or tipsters you will need to build the source parser yourself and then submit the picks to smartbet.io, as outlined in https://smartbet.io/forums/topic/view/4/automating-any-external-source
Guidlines for posting requests for external sources:
- Use a descriptive title, that contains the name of the platform and possibly the name of the tipsters themselves if they can fit in the title.
- Create a new topic for each request. A request can contain multiple tipsters. Do not post new requests as replies to the original request.
