The use of a browser that does not allow the creation of cookies may hinder you from earning cashback. ShopBack highly recommends the use of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Safari. Due to the number of third party browsers available, we cannot verify that any other than the ones mentioned will work properly with ShopBack.

Your browser may sometimes be “confused”, resulting in errors that may prevent you from earning cashback. Clear the cache to ensure cashback tracking (it takes less than a minute)! See here for more information.

Security software such as Kaspersky or other protection software can block the tracking cookies ShopBack uses to earn cashback for your order. If you are using this type of software, you will need to ensure that it is set up to allow cookies from ShopBack and our Merchant Partner. Similarly, if you’re using a firewall such as Zone Alarm, Norton Internet Security or a similar firewall, you will need to keep the “Ad Blocking” turned off.

Some toolbars can redirect the commission ShopBack earns to another affiliate. If you have any toolbars installed, you may need to check and see if they are linked to any other shopping rewards or coupon sites.

If you are using ad blockers such as Adblock or uBlock, you might also experience issues receiving cashback. See here for more information.
