Common questions about

bet me

Over the past few months, we’ve gone more public about the betting exchange as it gets closer to launch. It is clear to us from the responses we have received that many users of betting exchanges generally are excited by the possibility of a new entrant to a market which is currently dominated by Betfair followed by three smaller exchanges, Matchbook, Betdaq and Smarkets.

We’ve looked over the most common queries we’ve been receiving and put them altogether in one handy to read guide. Feel free to contact us on twitter @betme or at if you want to know anything further.

Why build a betting exchange?

More choice in a marketplace can only be a good thing for the consumer and we firmly believe there is scope for a new entrant to the betting exchange marketplace. An entrant whose platform offers transparency, versatility and adaptability coupled with an innovative user experience. We want to create a gambling eco-system with all the latest real time information at a customer’s fingertips. At the same time giving the customer the ability to pick and choose the information they consider most relevant to their betting strategy and be able to create fully customisable personalised trading screens.

Who are you regulated by?

The exchange is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission (Account Reference: 47655) for the purposes of being a Betting Intermediary and for Gambling Software. We also have a Remote Betting Intermediary’s licence for the Republic of Ireland.

What jurisdictions do you accept customers from?

We are licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and we operate under a remote Betting Intermediary's licence for the Republic of Ireland. For our initial launch we will be accepting customers from the UK and Ireland only, but hope to expand this in due course.

How are you different from the other exchanges?

Our betting exchange provides a fully customisable trading platform, giving you a wealth of betting tools to enhance your betting or trading experience. Features such as the Ladder and enhanced charts, usually only available on third-party software, now come as standard on our exchange. Take a look at our Features.

How will you get liquidity?

Having used exchanges for years ourselves, we are very much aware that liquidity is an integral factor in the success of a betting exchange. We are exploring and developing all avenues in this regard, but like all other exchanges before us, we expect it will take time before liquidity levels satisfy everyone.

Do you have an API?

It is our intention to offer API access in the not too distant future. If you would like to know more, or have a proposal for using our API, please let us know.

What is your commission rate?

Our standard commission rate is at 2% of net winnings on a market

What payment methods will you accept?

For our initial launch, deposits and withdrawals can be made via debit card followed by Skrill/Neteller e-wallets. Our intention is to add to this to create a varied range of payment methods in the future.

Is this software just layered onto another exchange?

The exchange has been developed in-house. It is all our own software and our own platform, so we are a truly ‘independent’ exchange. Additionally, the range of betting tools that we provide at no extra cost on our exchange have also been developed in house. This enables us to deliver real value through technology.

Will you have horse racing?

Horse Racing is an important sport for us, especially as a UK & Ireland facing betting exchange. This will also feature in-play horse racing as well.

Will you have in-play betting and what delays will you have?

Having live betting is a key focus for us and will be featured on our platform. In-Play delays depend on the competition or sport that is taking place. It is our belief that these delays should be kept to a minimum.
