Need For Speed: How Fast Do Our Merchants Pay Out?

If you’re a member of TopCashback, you already know about our amazing deals at the best rates. However, while shopping, you might wonder: “How long will it take to get my cash back?”

Well, good news! We have compiled a nifty list of our top merchants and their “Estimated Payout Speeds.” This way, when you shop, you’ll know what estimated timeframe to expect to see that cash back become payable in your account.

dreamingofwdwMarch 31 2021, 09:36 I agree that you need to do a better job of turning this around, especially in this day and age of electronic transactions. Don't buy anything through TopCashBack from Levi's. I have one transaction that says 27 weeks. I'm still waiting for money to post from a purchase in November. Yes, it's less than 27 weeks but why should any transaction take that long? Similar to what Pacestorm said below, 6-8 weeks is reasonable to wait, but 27 weeks is poor business.

Hi There,

Thank you for your feedback.

As I said below, unfortunately each member will have their own "Estimated Payable Speed" that is out of our control.

We try to be trasnparent so you can view this payout timeframe before deciding if you would be okay with waiting that time to obtain your cashback.

Since we are the only cashback service that doesn't keep a portion of the cashback, we will always have to wait for the retailer to release the funds to us first before passing them over. This is how we are able to offer 100% Of the cashback to our members.

Best Wishes,
Pacestorm February 7 2021, 16:59 You guys need to do a better job getting these monies quicker to the users accts. To have to wait for some 4-6 months is just ridiculous. 1-2months I feel is reasonable, anything over that is just poor business.
Hi There,

Thank you for your feedback.Timelines for payout will vary by retailer (example some retailers pay out in as little as a few weeks, whereas others may take longer) We always try to be transparent about payout timelines (whenever you click on a merchant, you will be able to see their estimated payable speed to the right if you scroll down a bit), so in the event that a retailer's timeline may feel a little long for you, you may want to consider comparing that timeline of a similar retailer which may be able to provide you a faster payout experience.To provide some comparison as well, we pass 100% Cash back on to our members, with no minimum for payout, versus you'll find that many of our competitors either have a minimum or payout every 3 months for a lesser rate.

Best Wishes,
DeborahGreene451January 16 2021, 07:27 I contacted you a while ago
Because you blocked my account and the money was in the waiting list and you said that you will not be able to use your account again, but until now the account is working, but I cannot log in to it and you have transferred the money to the confirmation section, meaning that you want to take my money by stealing to my uncle I can access the account in my own way. If you did not re-activate the account, I will post a video on my channel and let nordvpn know what you are doing I only want my right and it is to reactivate the account without problems and activate the accounts of my friends whom I invited Thank you.

I hope to solve the problem

Hi There,

While we don't currently have Brighton on site, I will pass this request on to our Partnerships Team so that perhaps the store may be added to the site in the future!

Best Wishes,

haha1September 19 2020, 13:27 I don't think so. Even though many of my cashbacks were confirmed over 3 months ago, those transctions are still not payable.
