PT assistant Guide

You will use these keys in your application.properties file to enable the bot to connect to your exchange account.
You will also be asked for the first public API key upon checkout.

Finding PT Assistant

  • Join the Discord
  • Talk to the “PT Assistant” bot. You can simply search for the bot and send a message to the bot to start it, as shown below:

The Search field in Discord


Begin Typing “PT ” in the search field to find the bot. Select PT Assistant#3821 and start a conversation with it.


Alternatively, you may locate the @PT Assistant bot a discord channel, by either typing the command “!license” into the chat or by right clicking the PT Assistant bot user name to the right and selecting Message.


Once you start the discussion, you will see a list of the commands. If not, type “Hello”.


Validating Your License

In order to access the Support channels on Discord you need to verify that you are a paying customer. We do this by linking one of your ProfitTrailer License(s) to your Discord Account. You only need to do this one time.


First ensure that you have direct message access in discord:


1 - Click on the ProfitTrailer icon in discord, next click on the server Name at the top


2 - Click on 'Privacy Settings' in the menu


3 - Enable the slider for 'Allow direct messages from server members'. Accept the confirmation if you see one.


After ensuring you have access to the direct message feature in discord:

  1. Type !letmein in a private message with PT Assistant.
  2. PT Assistant will ask for your PT License number.
  3. After confirming your License the Assistant should respond with “You are now a Trailer. Talk freely in the ProfitTrailer server.”


You will also see you now have a second Discord Role: Trailer.


This will give you full access to the support channels. You will not receive setup support if you skip this step.



Registering API keys

Once you have purchased ProfitTrailer and received your License via email you can complete this step.

  • You do not need to register your Exchange API Key if you created one and entered it during checkout. If you have a problem when you try to start your PT bot and get an INVALID LICENSE error or you are setting up a second bot, come back to this step to re-register your API key.
    • Note: This is only for an initial purchase of the bot. If you are re-creating a new api key for other purposes you will copy the key from the api key creation page on your exchange.
  • You will need to register the new “Default” API key for each new instance of PT you set up. (Also, if you need to know how to set up a new instance of PT, see these instructions Setup a Second Bot Instance.)


  • Once in the chat with the PT Assistant bot, type “!addkey”. It will ask for your PT License. This license will be in the email that you receive after you finish paying and waiting for your transaction to confirm (note this could take some time so don’t panic).
  • Next it will ask you for the API key you wish to activate. This is the key you created on the exchange and also the default_api_key in your application properties file.
    • Copy and paste the public key (never the secret key).
  • PT Assistant will ask you to confirm your key with !yes or !no. Once that is successful, it will tell you that your key has been activated.
  • When activation is successful, you may go to the next step. If not, get help in the Discord group, #pre-purchase channel.




Redeeming a Voucher

Pt assistant is used to link any addon purchases you have made to your ProfitTrailer licence.

When talking with PT Assistant use the following commands to link your voucher codes to your Licence:

  • !redeemapi
  • !redeemconfig
  • !redeemsignal

PT assistant will ask for your licence first and then the voucher code that was emailed to you after making the purchase from the ProfitTrailer Shop
