Try changing your reward package,basic package charges 2%
Report longbridge October 1, 2019 3:26 PM BST
My Account -> My Betfair Account -> look half way down on the right and see what package you are on - "Basic" is 2%, "Rewards" is 5% and "Rewards+" is 8%.

I dont play Games/Casino at all and Sportsbook hardly at all, so picked Basic.

thanks longbridge. Just changed mine to basic. How long has this been possible ?
Report longbridge October 1, 2019 3:44 PM BST
New today I think.
Report howard October 1, 2019 3:47 PM BST
Thanks. Haven't had a bet since last week and certainly didn't pay 8% on that.  Looks like they put you on that  unless you move to basic
Report sparrow October 1, 2019 3:55 PM BST
You need to select a package howard otherwise you won't get the concession.
Report BARROWBOY October 1, 2019 4:02 PM BST
Longbridge,it’s been available for the last 3 or 4 months
Report howard October 1, 2019 4:05 PM BST
I've selected it sparrow. Barrowboy I think mine was on the 8% one but I haven't been charged that.

@barrowboy

Ah OK, I must have missed it for all that time.
Report Jack Bauer '24' October 1, 2019 4:16 PM BST
It has not been available to everyone.
Report sparrow October 1, 2019 4:26 PM BST
Jack is correct only a limited number of people were offered the concession by email.

Thanks Guys just found it, I guess we won't need to book " points Holidays " anymore then?  to keep extra deductions off rate
Or am I missing something ?
Report dustybin October 1, 2019 4:44 PM BST
It does say in the TCs that it can be taken away again, and its in 'beta' mode so I wouldnt count your chickens just yet
Report portmanpark October 1, 2019 8:20 PM BST

Thanks longbridge

I won’t be having a bet until Sunday but have clicked on the basic.

Can someone confirm my commission will now go from 5.9% to 2%
Report elisjohn October 1, 2019 9:33 PM BST
as far as i know happysan, yes, im on between 3.5 and 4.5 and ive gone on basic
Report Latalomne October 1, 2019 9:38 PM BST
The fact you are on 5.9% suggests you're outside the UK.  It should be really obvious from your "My Betfair Rewards" page whether the 2% is available to you or not (I've no idea if it's available to those outside the UK).
Report happysandwich October 1, 2019 9:51 PM BST
Latalomme,

I'm in London and got an email from Betfair today.


elisjohn,

I haven't had a bet since 19th August because I decided then to put my winnings on the Arc.
Report UBLE/REGY October 1, 2019 10:27 PM BST
Ta for that Stow.

They have been charging me up to 6 %, although 4.7% at mo, not winning so much lately.

I have selected 2% I hope my bets are settled at that....ta very muchHappy

So are we all now on 2% commission? Got to be a catch?

Hopefully it's competition and they got sick of purple calling themselves the 2% commission exchange
Report Brian October 2, 2019 3:01 PM BST
Didn't expect that. As someone else said it is a no-brainer particularly for exchange only punters.
