For the purpose of calculating Betfair Points, your commission, or implied commission, on a market is converted to British Pounds at the time of settlement.

Freezing your Betfair Points.

When you're not betting on the Exchange, you can freeze your Betfair points to prevent a weekly 15% reduction and your commission rate will stay the same.

A Betfair points freeze lasts for one week. You earn one week when you register and one additional week every three months thereafter. You may freeze your Betfair points at any time but cannot accrue more than four unused weeks on your account.

You can bet during this time, but you will not earn Betfair points for any markets settled during this period. You may cancel a points freeze anytime up to three hours before the 15% reduction occurs (Every Sunday at 9pm GMT).
