I've got the same problem, BACK is OK, LAY just generates the '£2.00 at 1.01' part of the bet and doesn't complete.

This has happened to me also. 2:06pm UK time was my last successful lay bet my bot put in. My bot won't function now until this is fixed.

Hi
On Betfair forum there are related posts, it's not just MFP. I believe another software vendor has reported the issue to Betfair.
Please read the following disclaimer with regards to the information you may request and obtain on our forum. This specifically concerns trigger files and various instructions as to how to implement a strategy.

I've done a few tests and it seems ok from £0.80 and above, it doesn't work below that for lay bets.

Yes, that was mean.
We do all our best to find a solution.
Meanwhile please switch off "Allow small bets" option.
If it's not acceptable for your strategy please stop betting - the behaviour is unpredictable.
I'm happy to help Monday - Friday, 08:00-18:00 GMT
Буду рад помочь с понедельника по пятницу, 08:00-18:00 GMT

Hello!

Been able to place bets of both types, so looking for ways to reproduce the problem...

Another one.

I can confirm that very small bets, e.g. 0.05 are rejected. I'm looking to find the minimum liability allowed.
