I'm in the wrong country, according to BF website.

Manual cash out is OK on android app.

I don't seem to be having any issues using the API directly but getting odd errors through the site.

Just had a 'Betfair business rules do not allow this order to be placed' on my lay bet

That has just cost me £125, I had a win bet on the favourite and couldn't cash out. I tried cashing out on the betfair website, I had a message come up saying

"The following bet(s) could not be placed: Most likely this is due to you being located in a country where we currently can't offer our services. If you have questions please contact our Helpdesk at [email protected]."

No chance they will give me a refund. By the way I am in England.

All my bets are getting rejected as invalid due to invalid business rules. Exchange has thrown a right wobbler there. Stop using the exchange immediately.
Mine too and I've got an open back position. I'm in contact with Betfair but it seems they're very busy atm

I'd expect them to void the market
