I was changing some code this morning and I decided to use a new url for retrieving data from Betfair. The URL is http://uk-api.betfair.com/www/sports/exchange/readonly/v1.0/bymarket? and I suddenly realised that the param marketids is plural so with mounting excitement I entered marketIds=1.106044240,1.106044222 and lo and behold, I got the data returned for both events. How cool is that I thought, but then I started wandering if Betfair will count this as a single call or will they charge me once for each eventid in the url? So what I am wondering is: if I make a request with 10 eventids, will I be restricted to 1 of these requests per second or 10 of them per second before I have to start paying Betfair for the number of requests?
The second question I have is; Another parameter in this URL is types that is in the form &types=MARKET_STATE%2CMARKET_RATES%2CMARKET_DESCRIPTION%2CEVENT%2CRUNNER_DESCRIPTION%2CRUNNER_STATE%2CRUNNER_EXCHANGE_PRICES_BEST%2CRUNNER_METADATA
Does anyone know if there are any other types of data one could request in the same call? Current bets would be nice :-)
Thank you in advance for any feed back
I should have mentioned, I did search for an answer and the closest I came (so far) is http://jhw.github.com/blog/2012/05/10/betfair-unofficial-json-api/ who is only aware of the types I mentioned above.
