Be notified of your earned cashback credit
After you’ve clicked through to a supported merchant from Coinbates and completed a purchase at their website, it typically takes 24 hours for your earned cashback to be credited to your Coinbates account. It may take longer in some cases, but rest assured once we’ve been notified by the merchant of your purchase we’ll immediately credit your earned cashback to your Coinbates account.
You’ll receive a notification to the email associated with your Coinbates account similar to this one:
The earned cashback amount is calculated based on your spend at the supporting merchant, excluding shipping and taxes.
For example, I spent $100 at Ray-Ban for a B12 Aviator, while my total was $112 including local sales tax and shipping charges. Since the cashback rate at Ray-Ban was 9% during my shopping session, my Coinbates account is credited with 9% of $100, or $9.
Withdraw your cashback balance as crypto
Cashback balances are stored in your account as US dollars. There are two types of cashback balances: Pending Balances and Available Balances.
Pending Balances are credited to your account in the days after you complete checkouts at our supported merchants. Pending Balances become Available Balances after a locking period which confirms that both you and the merchant are happy with your purchase. Learn more about this at our Help Center.
Once a Pending Balance is ready to withdraw, or in other words, become an Available Balance, we’ll send you a notification email. You’ll also be able to track the status of your cashback balance on the Balance page.
When you're ready to withdraw an Available Balance as your favorite crypto, just click ‘Withdraw’ on your Balance page or in the notification email to be taken to the following screen:
Here you’ll be able to enter the crypto wallet address you wish to receive your crypto cashback payout.
The above is an example of a Manual Withdrawal. We also plan to support Automatic Withdrawals: the moment a Pending Balance becomes an Available Balance, we’ll convert the dollars into your digital asset of choice and send it to a pre-defined wallet address of your choosing.
Do it again, and again, and again
That’s it - that’s how easy it is to earn crypto for online purchases through Coinbates!Start shopping
