Betfair API Key | Automate Your Betting – Betfair

Betfair has it’s own Exchange API. You can use it to programmatically retrieve live markets, automate successful trading strategies or create your own customised trading interface. Professional punters use it for these functions and many more.
This guide helps Australian and New Zealand customers with obtaining their Betfair API Key. If you’re outside of these two regions please go to the UK’s Developer Program website.
Please note throughout this article the terms ‘API key’, ‘Application Key’ and ‘App key’ are used interchangeably.
The simplest way to setup your browser with the SSOID is to click this link, and login
After clicking login, you’ll be sent to the main Betfair website. Note: it may not show that you’re logged in on the site. You can ignore that. Proceed to step two.
Navigate to the API-NG accounts visualiser.
If you’ve followed step 1 correctly, your SSOID token should be automatically populated in the visualiser.
Next click on ‘createDeveloperAppKeys’ in the left hand navigation.
Type in an application name; this will be the name of your bot, and click ‘Execute’ down the bottom of the page.
If you receive an error message saying that your app key couldn’t be created, it’s most likely because you already have one. Use the ‘getDeveloperAppKeys’ method in the left hand menu to check whether there’s already an app key associated with your account.
After your key is created, you should see in the right hand panel your application:
You’ll notice that two application keys have been created;
• Version – 1.0-Delay: is a delayed app key for development purposes
• Version – 1.0: is the live pricing app key; on yours it should have a status ‘No’ in Active.
Grab the application key listed for the live price one; for the example above, that is ‘MkcBqyZrD53V6A..’
This process will generate two app keys:
Please note that if the live key is used to pull data from the Exchange without corresponding bets being placed a delay may be automatically applied to the live key.
