Introducing ShopBack

ShopBack is a cashback site that originally started in Singapore and is now the #1 cashback platform in Australia with over 600K users. If you’re not familiar with ShopBack, here’s how they work:

ShopBack partner with over 1000+ online retailers and will pay you a percentage or fixed amount based on the sales total. The cashback percentage varies between retailers and from time to time there are boosted promotions on offer. Cashback sites like ShopBack essentially give you a share of the total sale commission they receive from the retailer.

How does ShopBack work?

For your cashback to be tracked correctly, you must download the ShopBack app or website (www.shopback.com.au). You then search for any travel brand like Booking.com, Expedia, AGODA, Virgin Australia and then you’ll be redirected to the brand’s website/app, as usual, to make you’re booking. As long as your browser cookies are enabled; the sale will track, and the cashback will be allocated to your ShopBack online account.

Usually, there is a waiting period before you can withdraw the money, this is a safety precaution to make sure the sale actually happened, and no refunds were made.

The great thing about cashback is that you can use this on top of credit card points, buy now pay later and stack with promo codes so there is no reason to not save extra money. To give you an example of some of the cashback rates that are on ShopBack, have a look at the below:
