The steps below are just extra things you can do to help the tracking process on Cashback Sites. If it’s all too much work then it’s still worth going through a Cashback Site without doing anything special. Tracking usually works without users doing anything - or else advertising on the internet wouldn’t work!
A few Steps when using a Cashback Sites:
- Clear out your Cookies.
It is possible that you visited the online retailer in the past by following a link from an advert or other Cashback Site. To ensure that the retailer rewards the Cashback Site for the sale and not another site that won’t give you cashback, it is a very good idea to clean out your cookies
- Turn off your popup blocker
Some online retailers use popups as part of their method of tracking. The majority don’t but it’s worth disabling your blocker just in case.
- Check that nothing else will prevent tracking
If you have some other systems on your computer designed to block advertisements or prevent tracking cookies, you should check that it won’t stop the sale being tracked
- Go to the Cashback Site
Log into your preferred cashback site and find the online shop you want to use.
- Click through and buy
Click through to the online shop and buy the product(s) you want. If there are any transaction numbers mentioned then be sure to make a note of them so that you can quote them if the Cashback Site has to put in a manual claim for your Cashback
