The benefit as mentioned above comes from all the options that get opened up which now become possible that only require margins over 2% rather than nearer 5%
Greater liquidity in markets and low tax increases higher yield through more transactions

Im not calling him a liar, but to get rid of the 'buffer' would mean losses take at least x amount more time to recoupe, where X=PC rate

So 40% more wasted time
Nah

Report dustybin October 2, 2019 7:27 PM BST
just to be clear...1.5% is the absolute extreme case, and the only time that happens will be customers on 5% natural rate, and to be on 5% they'd have to be playing in buttons, so it would be 1.5% of not very much anyway

If you were natural rate 4% and won 5K a week, they only be giving you £2600 over the year....and they hope youll use it in the exchange....just like their experiement last year for layers Id imagine

The simple summary of PC is below:
> Once you are profitable AND your lifetime commission is less than 20% of lifetime profit you 'qualify' for the PC.
> Assuming your lifetime profit is less than £250k then the PC will be 20% of profit in any week (Mon to Sun) where you make a profit. PC increases to 40% or 60% once lifetime profit goes above £250k.
> The PC will roughly equal the difference between total commission paid and 20% of your profit. It's not quite as simple as this but near-as-dammit for this summary.
> The first £1k of PC owed is not chargeable. I guess this is to give people a buffer while BF contact you with the "good news".
> There is NO carry over or buffer from week to week. If you make loss one week this will have no bearing on the charge in a following profitable week (unless the loss takes you back out of the PC bracket).

There are more complex factors at play that have smaller impact so I have ignored them for the purpose of a simple summary.

Working off 40% or even 60% PC is possible if your game is consistent. If you are making £1k each and every week then you can budget for a £400 weekly charge. If your system loses £2k 75% of the time and wins £10k 25% of the time then you are stuffed.

Report jamee1 October 3, 2019 12:28 AM BST
OK, sorry. I think the reason there is eventually no buffer for a consistently profitable account is because the 20% charges to profit ratio is based on "gross profit" and not "net profit". (*By ‘gross profits’ we mean the amounts won, excluding total charges, less the amounts lost, on all Betfair markets.)

Therefore once you start paying the PC your gross profit will shoot away ahead of your net profit and charges to profit ratio will continue to decrease.

I used to be good at maths. Now my head just hurts!

an example of the new deal.

im on 3.5%..i place 11 x £1000 even money bets..6 win..so,gross win is £1000..
net win is (£1000 -(6 x £35) = (£1000 - £210) = £790 implied losses are 5 x £30 = £150
charges that week are £210 + £150/2 = £180
PC £1000 x 40% = (£400 -£180) = PC £220
£790 -£220 = £570 net profit.


now im on 2%..i place 11 x £1000 even money bets..6 win..so,gross win is £1000..
net win is (£1000 -(6 x £20) = (£1000 - £120) = £880 implied losses are 5 x £30 = £150
charges that week are £120 + £150/2 = £135
PC £1000 x 40% = £400 -£135 = PC £265
£880 -£265 = £615 net profit.

Ive stopped looking but all very good

Now you see what I was getting at all that time ago regarding the higher the comm rate fixed, the worse deal you get over all due to the difference above market base rate of 3%
Cool

old comm rate 3.5% net profit £4825 gross £5000
charges 175/2 = 87.5
pc 5000 x 40% = 2000 -87.5 = 1912.5 = 2912.50 net profit.

2% comm rate  net profit 4900 gross 5000
charges 100/2 = 50
pc 5000 x 40% = 2000 -50 = 1950 = 2950 net profit.
