Can I check what constitutes as minimum bet abuse, from what I can tell online it's people/bots placing lots of very small bets whereby Betfair can't take their % commission due to rounding issues?

The reason I ask is I'm currently testing a bot and have been for weeks now, it usually places bets above the £2 mark but sometimes depending on the odds it can fire a back bet in as low as .70p, bets generally aren't greened.

I've paid commission on all bets and haven't had an email or warning from Betfair but is it wise to maybe look at increasing account size and stakes just in case?

I was also wondering similar and is bet rounding the same as described above?

Does this affect lay bets only, or are back bets affected as well?

We've just updated the build to 1.54.2b with slightly different parameters which hopefully will be good enough to see us through the rest of the weekend!
Same download links as before, just install over the top of the last version.
Thanks dev team for doing this so promptly, as an ex developer I know how difficult it is to put out fixes when you've not even got a spec to work from.

We updated it again this morning to 1.54.2b with different parameters for the patch, so if your About box isn't showing that version, then please download again and retry

We are pleased to announce a special release of Bet Angel Professional is available v1.54.2

There are no new features in this release, but it does contain a fix to workaround a unannounced change made by Betfair to their API to prevent consistent attempts to take advantage of bet rounding. This change has resulted in errors occuring and orders now being rejected when greening up with small stakes

We have raised this with Betfair and are awaiting a response to work out a way forward, In the meantime for anyone who is using smaller stakes and has found their bets and green up orders being rejected we'd recommend you download the latest version from the links below

What would you advise other traders not using Betangel? Would you say not to trade if their software has not had a work around?

If using smaller stakes and are being effected then yes we'd say leave it until a its been sorted, it was what we were advising BA users do for the first few hours yesterday until we got this fix in place
