Don’t worry if it seems a bit complicated, it’s super easy once you’ve done it!

Is There A Catch With TopCashback?

Seems weird they would pay you a bit of cash to do your online shopping right?

There’s no catch. Online retailers and brands have an ‘affiliate’ agreement with TopCashback. That means TopCashback receive a commission on each sale that results from a shopper visiting via the TopCashback website. Part of that commission goes into your pocket. Simples! It’s a form of marketing for online retailers to boost their sales.

How Much Cash Can I Earn?

The percentage cashback you receive on every order you place will vary. It’ll always clearly tell you on the TopCashback website before you visit the retailer. If you’re a regular online shopper you can earn reasonable amounts over time.

How Do I Get Paid By

There’s no minimum balance needed to withdraw your money. Even if your balance is only pennies you can still withdraw it! You can transfer your cash balance from TopCashback to PayPal. BACs is also available. There’s also a range of gift cards for British retailers available.

We recommend using this little trick to boost your payouts.

When you have successfully got cashback tracked in your account you’ll have to wait for it to have a status of “payable” before you can withdraw it. Sometimes it takes a while to reach “payable” status, other times it happens within weeks. This is partly to ensure unscrupulous users can’t abuse the system. Otherwise, shoppers could request refunds from retailers after they’ve been paid the cashback.
