How do I track my Credit Earnings?

Visit the Click History page to see which stores you've clicked through that are being tracked. Once the store notifies us of your purchase, which can take a few hours, we'll update your credit balance and send you an email.


What if I earn credits than return, exchange or cancel the purchase?

Returned, cancelled and exchanged orders will void credits and they will be deducted from your Credit Balance.

To make sure that you will get your Credits on any exchanged orders, return the order and place an entirely new order at that store via Shopcred.


How do I redeem my credits?

Simply just click on 'Redeem' and choose your reward

All confirmed and available credit balances that total over 2000 are available for redemption.


What is the difference between 'Pending' and 'Available' Credits?

'Pending' is when your purchase has been tracked by the store and your credits are 'pending' prior to final confirmation from the store. Final confirmation is usually received after the return period of the goods or services has passed and/or the transaction is verified by the stores.

Available' credits are when the return period of the goods has passed and/or the transaction is verified by the stores.

Once your account has over 1000 credits balance, you can redeem them by clicking 'Redeem Credits' and choosing your reward.

Please be advised that once you have submitted or updated your existing bank account details you will need to wait 48 hours before submitting a payment request. Once requested, payments may take up to a maximum 5 business days to be processed.


My Credits have been reported lower than expected?

You can only eran Credits on the purchase price excluding GST and shipping, delivery and any other such costs.

If you still believe the credits are incorrect please submit an Enquiry on the help page under your account.
