Do I need to be a tipster to register?
Not at all! Everyone, tipster or not, is welcome to open an account at ProTipster.
After all, ProTipster will surely be your chance to prove that you are way better than others who call themselves tipsters …
Can I make money by referring other members? Does it cost money to become a member?
No. It is absolutely free to open an account at ProTipster. You can also sign in with your Facebook or Twitter account.
…but there is something called Pro membership and it is not free?
Yes. If you want to be a Pro member, you need to pay a small monthly contribution but you can also get away with it by having a small turnover each month. No need to be alarmed – Pro membership is only needed if you are willing to earn money with your tips and knowledge. It is absolutely free to use ProTipster otherwise.

So how does ProTipster make money?
We take commission from data trade that happens within the portal. The seller pays the commission and the commission percentage depends on various parameters.
How much commission do you charge?
It depends on the turnover of the seller and some other parameters but we start with 30%.
How many membership types are there?
For now two: Basic and Pro. Basic membership is free of charge and Pro membership requires a small monthly contribution.
Why do you charge for Pro membership?
It is simple: Pro members take advantage of the marketing, maintenance and technology we are providing them to make money. Hence, we ask for a small contribution to cover a minor part of the costs.
What are the advantages of Pro membership?
Pro members can earn money from the website by selling the content they produce. Moreover, Live Reports are exclusive to Pro members.
Can I have multiple accounts?
It is only possible to have one account per email address. Having multiple accounts is possible in theory. Yet, this is against you in practice if you are willing to earn money by supplying content. Your ratings will be divided and your products will be spread across many different accounts.
Can I login with more than 1 account at the same time?
No, we only allow one account to be logged in from one computer.
How can I find info about a particular game?
You need to find that game and go to its event subpage. To find a game, use one of the three options:
- Check the right block called “Latest” if the game is due in a short while or is already running.
- Check Event Calendar and click “Recent Events” if the event is starting soon.
- Check Event Calendar and click “Search Events”. You can use the parameters to narrow down the search and get what you are looking for as well.
How can I post picks and infos?
You need to go to the event subpage first. See “how can I find info about a particular game?” above. Once you are at the event subpage, you will see Picks, Infos and Live Reports listed in separate tabs. Click on the tab of the product you want and select “Post Pick/Info” or “Schedule Broadcast”.
How can I do Live Report?
First you need to schedule one. To schedule a Live Report, you need to go to the event subpage and click Live Report tab. Once you schedule a Live Report, you can go back to the Event Subpage and click on the eye-shaped icon to go and see the Live Report applet.
Using the applet is simple. You need to Start the Live Report and then use the buttons to send commands and use the text box to send comments. The first thing to do is to start the live report and then each command can be sent separately following the course of the event.
What are Tags?
Tags are used to categorize and define the products. Pick tags are used to determine which market the recommended bet is targeting. Info tags are chosen to display the kind of information is shared. Live Report tags show if the Live Report is betting-oriented e.g. including in-running picks or statistical or editorial.
It is possible to get quick results in search with the help of properly used tags.
Are there any content production rules I must follow?
There are no concrete rules but there is common sense. Odds must be correct and the tags must reflect the selected market while a pick is posted. Infos must have good content to satisfy the readers/consumers. Finally, Live Reports must be very accurate and command/comment updates must be timely.
Always keep in mind that each piece of content in ProTipster is rated by the consumers so bad ratings mean you will not have much chance to get your next product sold/consumed.
Can I charge as much as I want for my products?
Definitely but the question is if consumers would like to pay as much as you want to charge. Always be reasonable when pricing up your products. If you have killer information on a very low division game, you can charge higher prices. Yet try to remember that the limits on that competition might be too low to take large bets so your consumers might not be willing to pay such a high amount.
How many Live Reports can I do at the same time?
ProTipsters can only do one Live Report at a time.
How many Live Reports can I follow at the same time?
Consumers can follow as many Live Reports as they like at the same time.
How can I request content?
Content requests are made at the event subpages. It is exactly similar to posting content. Just specify the tag and the maximum price you are willing to pay for the content and wait for an alert that someone produced it for you!
Why would I pay for Picks and Infos? They are free all over the internet.
That’s right, there are thousands of free websites for over 10 years on the internet. The difference is the quality over quantity – ProTipster brings you an open market and the tipsters who are willing to sell their knowledge and take responsibility for them. On top of that, it is designed in the best way to save you time and effort when you are searching for information. You will quickly get access to what you are looking for instead of filtering time-consuming stuff on different sources.
Why would I pay for a Live Report?
Live Reports are unique and they are designed for live betting aid. They are not just reporting statistics but also letting you know the comments of the ProTipster. If you are betting live, you must check a few Live Reports and see their impact on your profitability.
What happens if my connection is gone while I am doing a Live Report?
We thought of this, too. By purchasing support option and paying a reasonable contribution fee, you ensure that a trained member of ProTipster team will contact you immediately when we notice that you are having connection issues. We will then enter the commands and comments for you temporarily until you get your connection back.
Can I cancel a Live Report I scheduled?
Yes you can but only if nobody bought it. Otherwise, ProTipster admin can cancel it for you.

Therefore, make sure you only schedule Live Reports you will be able to do.
