1. Can I use a different settings profile with the same BetFair account?

Yes, you can use as many as you want. When you are logging in to the program, make use of these special buttons:

Another question which is closely related to this one is, can I run more than one copy of MarketFeeder Pro at the same time?

Yes, you can, but if you are betting in real mode (i.e. with real money), make sure your triggers do not interfere with each other. I.e. if your triggers use a loss recovery plan where you check the profit/loss in settled markets, make sure the triggers take into account that you may be betting from two different copies of MarketFeeder Pro.

For example, if you bet in Tennis and Greyhound racing, choose the right type of sport for the right triggers, and set the scope of global trigger variables (such as loss counters, current bet, etc.) to “Individually for each sport”:

Triggers act separately in different sports

2. How to set the minimum difference between the price of the first and second favourite in a trigger condition?

Second Favourite’s Back Price is equal or greater than r_ticks(r_1_back_price, min_tcks)

Where min_tcks is the minimum number of price ticks between the prices of the first and second favs.

To define the opposite, e.g. the maximum difference, use this condition:

Favourite’s Back Price is equal or greater than r_ticks(r_2_back_price, -max_tcks)

Where max_tcks is the maximum difference in price ticks.

3. What is the minimum allowed bet size on BetFair?

The minimum bet size depends on the currency you trade in. Here is a list of most commonly used currencies and their respective minimum bet sizes:


Min. Bet Amount

Min. SP Bet Liability
















In MarketFeeder Pro, there is a trigger variable for the minimum bet size in your currency, min_stake.

While there is a way to lift this limitation in MarketFeeder Pro by turning on “Allow small bets” in “Betting Options”, it is not recommended to abuse bets below the minimum, because this may lead to the suspension of your BetFair account.

4. How to incorporate a stop-loss/stop-profit plan in my triggers?

By a stop-loss/stop-profit plan, we mean stopping your triggers once you’ve generated a certain percentage of bank in profit or in loss. You can add a stop-loss/stop-profit plan to any triggers placing bets, regardless of where you already have a loss recovery plan. To do this, follow the instructions on this page:

Setting Target Profit and Maximum Loss for your triggered betting session

5. I am using a Market Locator search template that I downloaded from your website. How do I know how often it searches for markets?

Just check the Scheduled Market Search settings:
