Hi
So started on Profit Accumulator with their free trial on Sunday and should have made the promised £40 someodd when funds finally clear into my account from Betfred...there's nearly £90 hanging about in he ether which is making me a bit nervous but hear it could take 5 days to clear. I've not done Smarkets yet.
I've done a very basic spreadsheet and seems to be working, I just can't figure out how
I'm struggling to believe that this is a real thing! Like it's too good to be true.

However, I would like to keep going and actually give it a decent go. Do I have to use my debit card. I would prefer for all these transactions not to be on my bank account. But the Profit Accumulator says not to use PayPal or the offer won't stand.
Is that only for when you start?
Can I add a PayPal account afterwards?

I have MANY questions.

Thanks!

Check the terms at each individual bookie to see if they accept PayPal (or follow PA's guides).

Perhaps use a bank account with a different bank to your main current account.

I think that PayPal don't like betting transactions and neither do some online bookies.

Yeah I wouldn't use paypal for deposits. Use a debit card

Also Profit Accumulator has its own built in profit tracker so you may find it easier to use that ;)

It is a real thing, I've made over £50,000+ from it now, others much more ;)

Ah I see, thanks. I have seen a couple with PayPal listed but I'm the profit accumulator instructions they are quite particular about using a debit card. So best stick to that I guess.

Honestly it seems too good to be true, but I see the money is in my account, so can't ignore that hard fact!
I have a random cash account that I have been working with, but it is with that same bank that I run a current and business account with. So may have to get something separate. Though there's a part of me that doesn't give a monkey's!!!

I don't know why they say that. Pay Pal is fine. Most of my bookmaker accounts are funded with paypal. Just check the T&Cs with each bookmaker, but there are only one or two that dont allow offers if you use it.

I think for reloads PayPal is fine but a handful of the sign up offers say bank account / debit card only

Having loads of money floating about is something you are going to have to live with if you pursue match betting, it's only going to get worse with the amount of money in these accounts (I have about 2k in accounts and exchanges) but on the plus side companies like betfred aren't going to steal your money. Just move on to the next offer, it will all work out in the end.

I'm struggling to believe that this is a real thing! Like it's too good to be true.
yes it's a real thing you will make money, again move on to next offer and see for your self

I would personally make another bank account for matching betting purposes, this way there is no confusion. I'm not sure if PayPal like betting transactions coming in. It's always smart to keep it seperate

I opened a separate bank account for matched betting, purely to keep transactions separate so I didn't get confused. I only use that account/debit card for mb. Some offers won't work if you use PayPal - always check the individual offer t&cs
