Virtually any external source/tipster can be automated via smartbet.io. The best option for automating a source would be to contact the tipster/source owner himself and invite them to submit their picks directly in smartbet.io. This is beneficial to both tipster and followers as outlined in https://smartbet.io/faqs/view/28/why-use-smartbet-io-for-submitting-my-picks
If for any reason this is not possible, then a source can be indirectly "bridged" to a smartbet.io source via one of the smartbet.io pick submission methods described in https://smartbet.io/faqs/view/38/how-can-i-submit-picks. Submission by email or by the POST method would be particularly suited for automatic pick submission.
Telegram channels, Twitter, websites, arb alert services, etc., can all be automated by scraping the picks from the source, then submitting them via email or POST to smartbet.io, so they can be followed by any number of following bots.
Although the implementation of such a scraper is relatively straightforward, it does require programming knowledge. Users with no programming experience will need to hire a programmer to accomplish this. Most types of external sources would take a medium-skilled programmer no more than 1-2 days to automate through smartbet.io with a budget of 100-200 EUR.
You can hire a programmer by posting a project on websites such as freelancer.com and point them at https://smartbet.io/faqs/view/36/how-can-i-submit-picks-with-the-post-method along with the details of the source that you want to scrape picks from.
Alternatively, you can contact other smartbet.io users that have developed similar solutions and are familiar with the smartbet.io pick submission API:
