I have a confession to make… I am an addict… yeah, you read that right! I am an online shopping addict! What’s not to like about it? You get to find good items just by browsing and clicking! Plus you get to do all your shopping at the comforts of your own home, while sitting in a nice comfy couch (yeah yeah I am lazy).
But little did I know that there is actually a better way to shop online now… and get some cash back the more I shop! It’s like I’m getting paid to shop, isn’t that nice?
I got a chance to chat with one of the Shopback staff to know more about them.
What is ShopBack all about?
Shopback is an e-commerce online shopping site that offers our customers cashback when they shop through our partner merchants like Zalora, Groupon, Lazada, Hermo and 300+ other local, regional and international merchants. We are constantly adding new merchants every single week so that our customers can get cashback from all of their favourite brands.
With ShopBack, you are still purchasing directly from our Groupon, Lazada etc, but when you click through from ShopBack, we can track how much you spend on these merchants using your internet browser cookies. The best thing is, we provide cashback on top of any voucher codes and promo codes from these merchants!
When did Shopback start?
ShopBack is a very young business—we were founded in April 2014.
How can we sign up for Shopback?
Head on over to ShopBackand SIGN UP by using either your email or your Facebook account.
How does purchasing and earning at Shopback work? What is cashback and how does that work?
For starters, you can check out our introductory and tutorial video. The concept behind ShopBack’s cashback mechanism is actually very simple. ShopBack is paid commission from their partnered merchants for driving traffic to their site, and ShopBack shares that commission back to you, the customer! You can get up to 30% of cashback on your order, so you quite literally get paid to shop!
My question though is in the “redeemable in” part, that means we can only use the cashback after 49 days (or whatever days indicated there) right?
Yes that is correct. You can cash out the amount into your bank account or PayPal account once the amount becomes redeemable and provided your redeemable cashback amounts to RM 10.01 (not including any bonus amounts).
Sounds awesome right? I was so shocked at the possibility of earning while shopping so I went ahead and tried it myself.
Just sign-up for a ShopBack account and shop away! Shop from your favourite merchants or discover new stores everyday! When you’ve decided on a merchant, simply click on “Get Cashback” to get redirected to the store’s website and shop as per normal.
2. Pay on the merchant’s site
Once you’ve clicked through from ShopBack, browse and pay on the merchant’s site. Remember to use the latest voucher codes and promotions as well, so you can get the greatest savings, on top of the cashback!
ShopBack can track how much you spent on each store and will credit the amount into your ShopBack account within 48 hours. Once your cashback is ready for redemption, you can cash it out into your bank account or PayPal account at the end of the month.
