Exchange users do not create markets. So at least they need someone to set the markets where to bet. Maybe not experts. Just copy betfair  :)

They also need reliability and clever ideas to get the position in the market they would like to.

reliability comes from good programmers and good position in the market is a job for marketing department is it not ?

The only annoying thing about Matchbook is that they don't automatically give you the best price available.
It happened already three times in the last weekend that when I was livebetting I for example entered odds of 1,55 knowing that 1,565 was available but I wanted to be suer my bet got matched. Then I see it got matched at 1,55 while even after refreshing 1,565 was still available....weird..

Matchbook cannot really challenge betfair due to the way they charge commission. They are not a trading platform. Even for arbing some tactics work better in betfair.

Daily withdrawal limit is 18k and weekly limit 72k, these number should be higher. Some users are allowed to withdraw only 4 times per month for free, then there is a fee of 2-3%...

Guys,

I still don't get this commission on losing bets. Can you correct me if below example is wrong?
Suppose I am laying 50unit on odds 3.0, my liability becomes 100 units
If I loose this bet, I've lost 100+1% commission in total 101 units?
If I win it, I've would have won 50-1%commission, in total 49.5 units?

thx

I just had a great experience with the Matchbook customer support, as I had signed up through outdated affiliate link. Support told me that Oddschecker (google it) had the only free bet offer available and changed my affiliate to Oddschecker and granted me the bonus. Very professional experience with them so far.

I have a very bad opinion as far as it concerns affiliation with them. Very very unprofessional.

I'm not sure i understand but maybe you made a trade and ended up in profit? In this case your funds become available right away.

Bigger than 1000?. Bigger than 1000-800-150 is ok. This happens also on betfair (don't know other). As you are laying two independent outcomes, they know you can't lose both bets. I never did   the calculation, but I assume they let you bet considering you would win one that gives you less money (at least you will have this money). Something like that...
