How do I claim my 0% commission?
Claiming your 0% commission is simple. Create an OddsMonkey account via any of the links above, then go to Manage my account > Exchanges > Smarkets Integration.
From there, you can click ‘OPT IN to Smarkets 0% commission’ and enter the email address on your Smarkets account.
Once you receive Smarket’s confirmation email, return to the OddsMonkey page and click ‘Link to Smarkets now’. OddsMonkey will take you through some simple steps to connect your Smarkets account.
Once connected, you only need to place a Smarkets bet via one of their various Matcher tools – OddsMatcher, 2UP Matcher, Extra Place Matcher etc. Your 0% commission will be applied to your account for the next 30 days.
To renew your 30 days, place another Smarkets bet via any of their tools.

Be sure to check your spam folder. Many email providers automatically sort your emails into separate inboxes like ‘promotions’ or ‘updates’, so check those too.
Remember, you can check your active commission rate via the ‘Trading Stats & Commission’ section of your Smarkets account. You can contact Smarkets’ live chat support if you still need clarification.
