I saw some liquidity on Smarkets on an odds comparison site for a bet I wanted today. I doublechecked it on their site - this was after 9pm on a Saturday evening.Opened an account - had to fund it - then tried to place the bet - only the liquidity wasn't there.

Liquidity is key when searching for markets. Truth is on any minor event alot of time the liquidity may appear to be there but in fact it is simply one or two people placing the odds.

Liquidity is the only way you can wager and win at a site like this...

I've been dabbling on Smarkets to small money.Their liquidity isn't great - probably less than Matchbook's,at a guess,but their odds aren't bad and their commission rate is always 2% on winnings,which is better than Betfair's overall and better than Matchbook's when taking an offer for UK - based-punters. Haven't tried getting paid yet,though.
