    Default You cannot bet less than $4 !!!

    This afternoon, crashes on the Betfair exchange began. In the UK markets I canít make a LAY bet of less than $ 4 via Geek. I put on dogs and horses. The same situation is not only in Britain, but also in Ireland, the USA.
    What happened? Somebody knows?

    Similar issue here. I can't lay less than £2 on Football markets (haven't tried any others). Backing less than £2 is fine. - Don't recall this issue being there on Wednesday's Football...

    Seems to be a problem with Betfair API. Other software have had the same problem.

    looks like betfair made some changes yesterday, that broke the existing functionality for lay bets at small stakes.
    Would have been nice if they had of told us of this BEFORE rolling it out, as it has affected hedging for everyone.

    So far, there has been no response from betfair about this.

    We are now looking into what we can do to work around this situation created by betfair.

    Crazy that they can just change things without saying anything! Couldn't hedge my possitions yesterday, will it be the same today?

    Any potential update on this please as still affecting. Two of your closest competitors have already dealt with it by releasing a patch?

    The problem is still apparent today Saturday 6 June. It's wise to have Betfair open on the cash out page to use that instead.

    I am trying to work on it at the moment,

    But it is just me today, and everyone keeps emailing ... what's going on or when will it be fixed.
    wasting dev time.

    I will have it fixed sooner if everyone could read the forums first, and wait for an announcement, instead of bombarding with emails.

    removed link to build, as it's still not working correctly for other currencies.
