Bookie Tips: How to Change Your Pay Per Head Provider

Change Your Pay Per Head Provider. Before we dive into the simple steps to changing your provider, I want to review what you should consider when choosing the right one for you.

How to Change Your Pay Per Head Provider

Compare Features, Not Necessities

You should always compare prices when looking for the best bookie software, but there are certain industry-standard features you should never compromise on just to save a few bucks.

  • Uptime. Don’t even look at a provider that does not guarantee a high uptime. You don’t want to take the chance that your website goes down in the middle of an important game because you could lose some of your players. No one can guarantee 100% uptime, but something very close to that is necessary – something like 99.9%.
  • Security. When you’re dealing with people’s money, they need to feel that their money is safe and won’t be lost or stolen. Make sure they offer DDoS protection and 128-bit encryption security. If you go with a bargain company that gives you better rates but not this level of security, you could be gambling with your customers’ money and your sportsbook.
  • Paying and collecting online. This was originally a feature that was ahead of its time. Even with the introduction of the Internet, payments were still inconvenient and challenging. Now, payments can be made online. This is now a necessity because it will be hard to keep your clients without it. They’ll go with what’s most convenient for them. However, not all systems are the same. You still need to find a provider with as many payment methods as possible because everyone has their favorite way of transferring money. Not everyone wants to do it with cryptocurrencies.
  • Mobile friendly. Does their service work with mobile phones? Ideally, with smartphones being used more often than computers, the provider should have their site designed on a mobile platform. Most companies have demos you can try. If they do, try them on your phone to ensure your players will be happy betting that way.
  • Customer service. When researching the available providers, this one is a little tougher to compare, but I thought it was still worth mentioning. If the customer service is not up to your standards, run away. When you’ve picked a provider, and the representative you’re talking to isn’t pleasant and helpful, find someone else. If they’re that bad when trying to gain your business, just imagine how bad they’ll be when they’ve closed you and already have your business.

What Features Are Your Necessities?

Not all bookie software companies offer the same features. You don’t want to work with a company that doesn’t provide all the bells and whistles you “need,” but you don’t want to pay for a bunch of items you aren’t going to use. This is where you start your price comparisons.

Most companies will have a standard set of features, so choose the ones with all the items you want and then compare their prices. Some of the features they might provide are:

  • A standard digital casino for your players between games or seasons.
  • Management software that makes running your sportsbook easy with reports and the ability to set limits, create alarms, and move the lines.
  • Access to a layoff account when you need to lay off a bet.
  • Premium features that you can choose to add or not. They may include items like live dealer casinos, props bets, or live game betting.

Now You’re Ready to Transfer Your Provider

Choosing the right provider is usually the most challenging and longest part of changing companies. Once you’ve decided, the rest is easy because the pay per head company does most of the heavy lifting for you.

  1. Call the company and tell them you want to join them.
  2. They’ll take your name and contact information.
  3. They’ll also need the list of your players.
  4. Now, you wait while they take care of the transfer.

It’s usually done very quickly, depending on the number of players you have. You don’t have to cancel with your current provider. Your new company will do that for you and transfer all your players.
