Q: How do I get started?
A:The first step is to sign up as a Preferred Customer so we can begin rewarding you for your online purchases.
Next, start thinking about the types of items you buy on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, and special purchases you make throughout the year, such as gifts for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, holidays and other special occasions.
Check out our product categories on SHOP.COM for more possibilities. Then, start flexing your purchasing power and begin earning the rewards you deserve.
Remember, at SHOP.COM, you get paid to shop with Cashback for the things you normally buy and for everything else you want and need!
Q: How will I receive my cash?
A: When you request to redeem cash back from your account, you'll need to verify your name and shipping information so we'll know where to send your Cashback check. Remember, you can request actual cash back as long as you have accumulated AUD $12 in your account.
Q: Is Cashback real money?
A: Yes, it's real. For Market America branded purchases or Premier Partner purchases where you check out using our OneCart®, the cashback amount is applied to your account usually within 24-48 hours. You can then apply your cashback earnings immediately as a payment option for subsequent purchases. For all other qualifying partner store purchases, your cashback will show a Pending status in your account until cleared by the participating store to account for returns, refunds, fraud and other processing issues. If you prefer to redeem your available cashback for actual cash, please remember you need to at least have accrued the program's required threshold amount of AUD $12.
Q: How do I make sure my purchase qualifies for Cashback?
A:When you shop for products using SHOP.COM and see the green Cashback symbol, you'll know those products are eligible for cashback. You can also see how much cashback you'll earn for each qualifying item. You can compare and sort products by various attributes, including the bottom line price. Click the best deal to go to that store. Additionally, you can also click a Cashback link within a sponsored ad.
Please note: When you click the Cashback link within a sponsored ad, you may be asked to provide your e-mail address again. Please be sure to do so to ensure you receive your cashback after you have purchased a product, as your e-mail address allows us to track your purchases.
Q: What are some of the limitations for getting Cashback?
A: In addition to Cashback limitations outlined in our Terms of Service, some stores may have further restrictions for getting cashback. For example, a special sales event may make a purchase ineligible for cashback. Using a coupon for some stores could potentially void the cashback for that store, including those you may receive via e-mail, see on a deal/coupon site or offered on a store's website. Since all stores have different terms and conditions, we cannot pay cashback where stores follow this type of policy and impose certain purchasing restrictions.
Q: What should I do when a purchase isn't showing up in my account? A:
Most cashback for eligible purchases appears in your Cashback account within a day or two as Available or Pending. Other possible reasons the purchase is not showing up in your account may include:
- The store might not recognize the purchase as complete because the item(s) might be on backorder, payment is processing, or other reasons. Contact the store directly to confirm that the purchase was processed. If the merchant confirms that the purchase was processed, please contact your Shop Consultant for further help.
- You opened a partner store's website in a different web browser. All partner store transactions must be initiated via SHOP.COM.
- Your browser is not configured to accept cookies.
- Your order was cancelled or the goods or services were returned.
- You also used a separate discount or coupon, gift card, or a gift certificate.
- Additional limitations for purchases on certain partner store sites might apply. See that store's policy for further information.
Q: How can I use my Cashback immediately?
A: When you make qualifying purchases using our OneCart checkout (Market America branded products and Premier Partner store products), your cashback can be redeemed and applied to subsequent purchases as a payment option as soon as it appears in your Cashback account as Available.
Remember, in order to redeem for actual cash, you must at least have accrued the program's required threshold amount of AUD $12.
Q: When and how do I get my Cashback?
A: When you sign into your Cashback account, you'll see your current pending, available and total awarded cashback amounts. When you make qualifying purchases using our OneCart checkout (Market America branded products and Premier Partner store products), your cashback appears in your Cashback account as Available. It can then be redeemed and applied to subsequent purchases as a payment option. If you prefer to redeem your available cashback for actual cash, please remember you need to at least have accrued the program's required threshold amount of AUD $12.
Q: How does SHOP.COM know that I've made a qualifying purchase?
A: When you sign up and are logged in before you shop, qualifying purchases you make are tracked using your login information. Cashback on Market America branded products and those from our Premier Partners will show up in your Cashback account within a day or two. Purchases from other partner stores will show Pending in your account until the necessary pending period has elapsed to allow for possible returns and refunds.
Q: What happens if I return, exchange or cancel a purchase?
A: Returns, exchanges and cancellations are subject to the individual store's return policy. If you return, cancel or exchange part or all of a purchase, the store may reverse your purchase with us.
