API and Commission

Hi,
Does using the API affect your commission ? ( all other things being equal)

Eg. If I’m on 0% (Commission Promotion) and I use the API will I still be on 0% ?

Cheers,
Bob.

Hi Bob,

Please note that trading through the HTTP API is subject to our Pro Tier commission band where 1% commission is charged on winnings or losses per each individual bet that settles, and order rate is limited to 1 bet/s.
The Smarkets Streaming API is available for market makers only and is subject to commission equal to 20% on lifetime P&L.

If you would like to access to either of these two services, you can apply by outlining your proposal here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1qI8RqypNimakPx-bmoUE_lA0YSP3YogKfL8N14STNSM/viewform?edit_requested=true
