When will I see my cash-back rewards?

You may see rewards in your Payce profile as soon as a day after an eligible purchase. However, it's important to note that the speed can vary. Some stores report sales promptly, while others, especially those that wait until the product ships, may take a bit longer. Rest assured, your rewards are on their way.

Receiving payments for your cash-back rewards is simple! Once your rewards are confirmed, they are automatically paid out monthly, provided your account surpasses the $10 minimum payout threshold.

How many rewards can I earn from each store?

There is no cap on the number of rewards you can earn from a single store.

Coupons are currently supported on our Chrome browser extension, which can be downloaded from the Chrome Store.

When you're on the checkout page of an eligible merchant, the Payce extension will show an alert showcasing the number of available coupons. With a simple click, Payce will apply the best deal from the coupons available on your order.

What should I do if I know a sale occurred but don't see it on my dashboard?

If you're aware of a sale, but it's not reflecting on your dashboard, it may simply mean the merchant hasn't notified us yet. The timing can vary, with some merchants notifying us within an hour and others taking up to ten days. If it's been more than ten days and you still don't see your sale pending, visit our support page to troubleshoot and fill out a "Report & Resolve Missed Earnings" form. Our dedicated team will promptly investigate to ensure you receive the rewards you deserve.

What does it mean if a sale is pending?

When a sale is completed through one of your activated cash-back rewards shopping sessions, the corresponding rewards will initially appear in your dashboard as pending. Cash-back rewards may be marked as pending due to a store placing a temporary hold on the sale. Stores typically employ a hold period of 30 days or more to ensure the order is not cancelled or returned. Keep in mind, for certain transactions like hotel bookings, the hold period can extend until after your stay ends. Once the store's hold period is cleared, your transaction status will seamlessly transition from pending to confirmed, and your rewards will be on their way to you.

Why do I not see Payce alerts on my Chrome browser anymore?

If you've noticed a lack of Payce alerts on your Chrome browser, it's smart to start with a quick check. Look out for any ad blockers or firewalls that might be hindering the extension's functionality. Sometimes, even being signed onto a work VPN can affect how extensions work. Addressing these potential blockers will likely get your Payce alerts back up and running smoothly. If you continue to have issues, reach out to our support team for assistance.
