What should you expect?
You will not get every order that becomes available, even with automation. It is unlikely that you are the only one using automation. Besides, you don’t want every order, just the amount that you can handle.
You should expect a measurable improvement in your success rate.
Automation levels the playing field. You are now able to compete on the same basis as the others . Without automation, you’re sitting in the bleachers – watching.
Users are reporting up to 3 orders on the first day of installation. Much happiness. There is no guarantee that you will achieve this, but it has happened more than once. If this is possible in So Cal, probably one of the most competitive markets in the US, then allowing you to pay after you’ve captured your first order is not really a big risk – It works.
