What is Cashbacking? How does it work?

Cashbacking, formed in 2005, lists hundreds of online shops such as Amazon, Boots, eBay, Expedia and uSwitch who pay Cashbacking a commission for referring customers to their website who subsequently purchase something or complete an offer. Cashbacking then shares the commission with it’s members in the form of Cashback.

We forge partnerships with these retailers through Affiliate Networks such as Commission Junction and TradeDoubler.

Cashbacking credits all new accounts with a £5 bonus, then all a user needs to do is click through from the Cashbacking website before they shop online to track their purchase and so the retailer can identify where the customer originated to credit us the commission. Once they reach £15 cashback, they can request a payment in the form of bank transfer or online gift voucher to shopper favourites Amazon, HMV and more.

How would Cashbacking benefit your readers?

Simply by shopping online after they visit Cashbacking, many of the users earn well over £1000 per year. Even better, it is possible to earn cashback without spending any money. Members can earn £100’s per year in cashback simply by taking advantage of free offers which also pay cashback.

For example: You could buy your car insurance from your chosen insurer for £300. As a member of Cashbacking, you could buy the same policy from the same insurer at the same price, but get £105 cashback.

LONDON, United Kingdom—July 9, 2009—Recession Boosts Cashback Shopping

PRESS RELEASE

The current economic downturn is forcing many people to cut back on non-essential spending and find ways of making their hard-earned cash go further, to pay those all-important household bills and one way is earning money for shopping online.

Cashback website Cashbacking.co.uk has seen a 13% increase in new memberships during the first quarter of 2009 and expects this to increase further as the recession takes its toll. Many of it’s users earn in excess of £1000 a year, simply by doing what they already do online. It partners with online retailers such as Tesco and Marks & Spencer and those retailers pay a commission for a sale which is referred via it’s website. Cashbacking then shares that commission with it’s users in the form of cashback.

Over 900 retailers and service providers are already offering deals through Cashbacking, including supermarkets such as Tesco and Sainsbury’s, technology stores such as Curry’s, Dixons, PC World and Sony and mobile phone, utilities and financial services from brands including Orange, O2, HSBC and Scottish Power. Cashbacking users can also get cash back from fashion brands such as Debenhams, UNI QLO and Nike Store.

There is no joining fee before users can start to earn. Users will also be eligible to a £5 free sign-up bonus once they have accrued their first £10 and will be sent their earnings via cheque, PayPal, BACS or online gift voucher each month automatically if they have over £15 in cashback.

Research has shown that 70 per cent of consumers start their online shopping trip with a search engine, a cashback website or a price comparison website, rather than going directly to the retailer’s website. This is prompting brands to widen their promotional strategies to include cashback incentives, helping them tap into a hard-to-reach online community of ad-resistant consumers. In the current economic climate, cashback websites look set to benefit from a rise in the number of consumers hunting for online savings.

Co-owner of Cashbacking.co.uk, Daniel Stewardson said “We expect 2009 to be the best year for cashback websites so far as we tap into those estimated 20 million people in the UK who don’t use cashback websites. You could buy car insurance from your chosen insurer for £300. As a member of Cashbacking, you could buy the same policy from the same insurer at the same price, but get £105 cashback.”

Daniel added: “Cashback shopping is a definite win, the member gets the same lowest online price, but they also get cashback on the purchase.”
