Quick Invest vs. API vs. Third Party
« on: April 11, 2017, 10:13:23 AM »
I am just curious how investors on this board automate their investments.  For instance, are most investors simply relying on the "Quick Invest" or other automated feature on the Prosper site?  If not are you using a third party application or paying a website (like LendingRobot) to manage your portfolio.  Finally, how many of you have built your own API interface to automate your Prosper investments?

I have tried all three, and am curious if my experience is similar to everyone else's.  I have finally landed on having a standalone Java app running on a PC to handle loan purchases and basic cash management.

I used P2P-Picks until Bryce shut it down. I sure miss Bryce. Now I just use Prosper's Quick Invest. It's worked fine for me, but I'm no fan of their new Recurring Investment replacement for Quick Invest. I would love something more flexible, but I also want something that's free.
The more knowledge we share, the better and more successful we’ll all be.

I wrote my own Go app to do this called ProsperBot and published all the source on Github.

I wrote a blog post to explain how it works and how anyone can extend it or write their own:

I'd be happy to answer any questions if anyone is interested in using it.
