 Commission

Understanding how Matchbook commission is calculated is key to success when betting and trading on the Matchbook exchange. It’s also crucial to understand if you want to take advantage of Matchbook’s new customer offer.

For every £1 that you pay in Matchbook commission, you will receive as cash back up to a maximum of £500 across your first five weeks of signing up with Matchbook. The more Matchbook commission that you pay, the more you will earn as cash credited to your Matchbook account.

What are Matchbook’s Commission rates?

Betting exchanges such as Matchbook and Betfair, do not apply a margin to odds they offer on betting markets. While a traditional bookmaker will apply a margin to their odds, for example odds of 1.90 on Asian handicap markets rather than fair odds of 2.00, Matchbook charges their customers a commission on bets placed.

Matchbook charges commission on bets matched on their exchange. So for example, you may place a bet on odds offered of 1.96, with a commission charged on your bet once the event has been settled.

How much commission do Matchbook charge? It depends upon the market you are betting on. The typical Matchbook commission rate is 1.5%, but as we stated, this rate can vary depending upon which market you are betting on. Sometimes Matchbook will have promotional offers where you can bet at a reduced commission rate. For example, Matchbook often offer 0% commission on select promoted markets such as the Champions League.

While the standard Matchbook commission rate is 1.5%, it should be noted that Matchbook will charge 0.75% commission when you accept odds already offered on the exchange. If you post your own odds and wait for those odds to bet matched, you will pay the standard 1.5%. But if you accept odds already offered, your commission charge will be 0.75%.

It should also be noted that you will be charged commission regardless of whether your bet is a winning or losing wager. If your bet is a winner you will be charged commission on the profit you earn.

On the other hand, if your bet is a loser, you will be charged commission on either your bet stake or the potential profit, whichever of these is the higher.

Also note that commission charges apply consistently regardless of whether your bet is a back bet or a lay bet.

Calculating Your Matchbook Points

To illustrate, let’s look at an example. Below you will see the match odds for an upcoming Premier League match between Liverpool and Crystal Palace.

Matchbook review

For this example we will place a bet of £100 on Liverpool to win at odds of 1.495. If our bet wins, the profit will earn will be £49.50. In this example, with Liverpool winning the match, this profit is what we will be charged commission on at the standard rate of 1.5%. Remember that the rate will be 0.75% if we accept odds already posted on the exchange.

So how much commission will we pay on this wager?

If Liverpool win the match, we will pay a commission of 1.5% on our profit of £49.50. So our commission rate will be £0.745.

Matchbook review

So in this example we would earn 0.745 Matchbook Points towards our maximum of 50 over the first five weeks of registering with Matchbook. Every time we earn 5 Matchbook Points, we will have £5 credited to our Matchbook account.

What if our Liverpool bet lost? What would we pay in commission then?

As we stated earlier, the commission we pay on losing Matchbook bets is determined by which is higher, your bet stake or the potential profit of the wager. If your bet stake is higher than your potential profit, your commission will be charged on your stake. If your potential profit is higher than your bet stake, your commission charged will be based on your potential profit.

So in our example, we will pay commission based on our bet stake of £100 as it is higher than our potential profit of £49.50. If our potential profit had been higher than our bet stake, commission would be charged on the potential profit.

So in this example, if Liverpool lose, we would pay 1.5% commission on our bet stake of £100, meaning we are charged £1.50, with 1.5 Matchbook Points going towards our total points earned.

Live Betting at Matchbook

What distinguishes Matchbook from other betting platforms such as traditional bookmakers like Ladbrokes or William Hill, is the ability to bet and to bet against outcomes. Betting on an outcome to occur, such as betting on a team to win a match, is known as back betting, while betting against an outcome to occur, such as betting against a team to win, is known as lay betting. This dynamic provides Matchbook bettors and traders with a uniquely flexible betting experience.

You can bet in play at Matchbook on select markets, with numerous leagues and tournaments available. Matchbook does not offer the same depth of coverage as traditional bookmakers, but in fairness to Matchbook, their list of leagues and sports available for both pre-match and live betting continues to expand.

If you enjoy betting on major sporting leagues such as the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Champions and Europa Leagues as well as major American leagues such as the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL, you’ll be more than satisfied with what Matchbook has to offer in terms of live betting.
