    Looks awesome Steve, best of luck with P101.

    Any idea when it/if will be available for MacOS?

  2. admin says:

    Thanks.
    No timeframe for Mac. Likely next step would be a chrome extension as the end goal would be to make it work on mobile phones.

    Hey Steve, looks good, will you change the site to be https so login data is secure?

  4. admin says:

    Hey Hayden, of course. Was on my to do list 🙂

    Thanks Carlos,

    Glad you like it

    Can it get your history from all bookie websites

  8. admin says:

    Hi Neil,
    Eventually yes, but currently only TAB, Pinnacle and Sportsmarket. We will be adding new bookmakers each month based on which ones the community vote on.

    Hi Steve,

    This product have potential, but part where you put username and password is very tricky. I as a software developer knows that can be easily hacked and what is garantiee that is stored only on my computer?

    I suggest you to for other bookies use scraping data via custom browser pluggin or specify format for csv/xls to import bets from any file.

    Also keep in mind that user can have more accounts at same bookmaker.

    I definitely will keep eye on this product.

    Regards

    As you say, you have a MVP with the existing software _except_ for those of us without accounts at those three sports books. The priority should be on adding more sports books.

  11. admin says:

    Hi Lou,
    Every new sportsbook added costs between $500 and $1,000. We will get there eventually but first I need to know if this is something people actually want.
    Also, TAB has over 1 million customers and I’m sure Pinnacle isn’t far off that. So even with only a few bookmakers, it should still satisfy some early guys.
    Let me know what bookmaker you would like to see added next.
    Thanks
    Steve

    Hi,
    Security is paramount when dealing with money. Your suggestion is exactly what we already do 🙂 Only Pinnacle uses their API.

    In regards to multi accounts, it’s not a concern for us. Someone with multi accounts would know not to log into more than 1 account on the same computer/IP. It won’t stop them using the tool on multiple computers though.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I am in the U.S., so we are more limited in bookmaker options. How about 5Dimes and Bookmaker for offshore and some of the newly legal ones opening up, say William Hill and Scientific Games.

  14. admin says:

    The US market is something we will look at soon. But we will concentrate on Aus and Europe for now. But 5Dimes will be added soonish.

    What is the business model for the site? How will revenue be derived?

  16. admin says:

    It’s a SAAS business. So we will allow free accounts forever if all they want is to see their profit/loss figure. For more data (such as pinnacle closing lines) they will pay a monthly subscription.
    It won’t be a site with affiliate deals everywhere.
    There are a heap of other ways we can eventually monetise (partnerships, data, courses, and many more).

    But I’m not looking to make anything for the foreseeable future. Just making the best product I can.
