I would always think that the idea of you getting paid instead of paying for stuff when you shop as something hilarious and out-of-this-world! But then again, the world is changing so fast that nothing seems impossible already. Then, I came across Shopback.ph and it blew my mind!

Shoppers, like you and me, get to earn cash when they shop online through ShopBack. It might sound too good to be true, but it is indeed a legitimate business model which took flight in the West. And now it is here, in The Philippines.


How is this possible? Well, the concept is rather brilliant! When a shopper makes a successful transaction on any online store that is linked from ShopBack’s platform, the merchant who gains from the purchase will give a commission to ShopBack. Thereafter, ShopBack will return a cut of its commission back to the shopper.

And get this! The rebate or the Cashback is given to the shopper on top of all existing discounts and credit card rebates, which means that shopper gets to save even more! To retrieve the Cashback, shopper can choose to transfer to either the shopper’s preferred local bank or PayPal account.

There are a lot of categories that you can choose from. Shopback is linked to various eCommerce sites on travel, fashion, food, electronics, etc. You name it! :) My favorite stores, like Lazada and Zalora are there!

So how to do you shop and earn credits?

  1. Just click on your favorite store. In this case, I clicked on Lazada.

2) Go through the normal shopping process in your favorite store.

3) A few days after a purchase is made on your favorite store, your Cashback will automatically be added to your ShopBack account within a few days. Once redeemable, the cash can in turn be “cashed out” via transfer to yourlocal bank or PayPal account.
