SO IS SHOPBACK LEGIT?
Indeed. I was hesitant to try Shopback at first knowing that scamming is very rampant nowadays. However, I realized that I won't lose anything if I try and there's nothing at stake anyway. Since I am somehow who does online shopping more than dropping by at actual stores, I think earning a little something from it might be a better and smarter idea. I am sharing this blog to you as we all know that technology is a widespread idea and people spend their time doing transactions online. If you are like me who places orders through giant websites, you will enjoy having Shopback installed too in your phone.
The app isn't hard to utilize if that's what you think. It's free and convenient in a way that every time you shop at your favorite e-commerce sites, all you have to do is open their websites through their platform and you will automatically get cash rebates once you successfully did a purchase.
HERE'S HOW SHOPBACK WORKS
First, you have to download the application from the App Store. You can sign in with your Facebook account or sign up with e-mail.
Every time you are planning top shop online, make sure to open the partner merchants through Shopback's platform to ensure getting rebates from every purchase made. You'll get notifications within 72 hours about the status of the rebates earned. You can check all available balance by clicking on the profile button on the upper right hand corner of the screen (see photo above). You will be redirected to the page that gives you information about the exact balance that is withdraw-able.
You can click on the 'Check Cashback History' to display available balance, pending earnings, withdrawn cash as well as the points earned from the purchase made. Available balance (are the approved transactions), pending earnings (are the unconfirmed rebates) and withdrawn (successfully transferred money to your bank account).
When using Shopback, you have to be patient because it takes months before partner merchants and Shopback confirmed that there weren't any cancellations made. Yes, if you cancelled/returned any order placed through the platform, cashbacks shall be considered null and void. Only successful transactions will be honored.
Shopback requires a minimum amount of P200 available balance before a withdrawal can be made. Yes, it would take several purchases to reach 200-peso threshold. Upon accumulating that much amount for the first time, Shopback will reward you an extra P100.
Now that we reached the required threshold, we are now ready to withdraw the available balance as real money! How?
You can opt for cashouts through Paypal or bank transfer. When opting for bank transfer, you have to add a bank account and verify it through e-mail. Shopback supports several banks like BDO, BPI, Metrobank, Chinabank, East West, Globe Gcash, PNB, RCBC, Security Bank, Union bank and UCPB.
You just have to navigate to your e-mail and click the link to verify the new cashout method. I encounter error verifying the bank account through my phone so if it happens to you, use your desktop instead. I guess this feature is only available for desktop use.
Proceed to withdrawing the money and you may have to enter an OTP code sent to your registered phone. This is an additional verification step. Lastly, you may also have to verify your e-mail address by checking your mail again.
You will then receive another e-mail confirming the cashout request.
And that's it! You will receive a notification e-mail once money was successfully transferred to your preferred cashout method. You can also simply monitor your bank account to make sure it gets credited! I received the money after exactly 7 days!
Using Shopback is really a smarter way of shopping online, don't you think? If you have further inquiries, you may just drop it on the comment section and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. Happy shopping!
