    Default Geeks Toy for Matchbook.com general discussion thread.

    I've started this thread for general discussion round Geeks Toy and Matchbook so we can keep the beta thread for resolving any issues that crop up.

    This would have been great if Matchbook didnt charge for lossing trades too.. Either you win or you loose you will be charged so matchbook is useless for traders

    We are in discussions with Matchbook in relation to NET win accounts similar to Betfair & Betdaq comission structure for geeks toy users. Will update you when we know anything certain.

    I think that this is an great news overall even with the Matchbook charging commision on losing trades as well as winning ones but when thinking of premium charge and high commision of Betfair's the Matchbook's comission aint that bad at all. I mean Betfair desperately needs real competition and I think this is good step into that direction since atleast in my mind the biggest reason for not using Matchbook all that much has been the absence of trading programs like GeeksToy and the low ammount of markets in football (not even correct score in play) and the low ammount of matches that go in live betting. Obviously the last two are still a problem but maybe someday they have been improved aswell...

    If someone back in one market 1000 at 5.0 then lay 1000 at 4.8 then he would have been charged both for win and lose bets.

    Great initiative!

    I have problems when trying to load tennis markets, especially WTA - showing no matches for WTA. Only WTA match visibly is the Wozniacky match.

    EDIT: "Stupid is, who...." - Matchbook only has semis inplay.

    Congratulations, great job, as always.

    I did yesterday 2 games to test and in both games the Matchbook charge 1% in each entry.

    Example lay al Real Madrid 2:50 and then back to 2.60 (pay 2 times 1%)
    The Matchbook considers each entry as a new bet and not trading.

    Betfair pay the 6.5% at the end of the game if we profit

    Matchbook charges on each transaction.


    This problem should be resolved to increase the number of followers in Matchbook and so were all happy.

    I am waiting for answer

    Thanks, clicking on Matchbook anywhere on the forums does the trick.

    Would have been out months ago but we've had our hands full with the effing migration to Betfairs new API.

    I'm sure it won't take Peter too many months to do a version now we have, as although in his words he'd probably have to pay people to use Matchbook, experience has taught me he really hates with a passion being perceived as second at anything.

    I have heard that matchbook is planning to offer horse racing in the first months of 2015.
    Can you tell us the date?
    Will australia horse racing be offered too?

    Hi mmanagement,

    We don't have that feature available at the moment I'm afraid.

    There may be some users on the forum here that can validate these claims, but the pre-match liquidity on Matchbook, especially for the major leagues, is as good, if not better, than other exchanges the majority of the time.

    Best thing to do is check out the markets for yourself.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Hi m123321m,

    The date for horse-racing has been pushed back now, and it will be closer to the end of the year before it is available.

    We'll definitely be launching it with UK & Irish racing, and would like to offer Australian as well. We'll keep the forum posted as these plans evolve during the year.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    please just use betfair's original commission structure and price increments and everyone will flood over to you.

    It will be great if Matchbook will create MSP(Matchbook SP betting) for horses.

    No they won't. Betdaq has the same commission structure as Betfair.
