    Hi. Can people please explain to me in detail what quidco is and how it works as well as any advantages and disadvantages

    I am doing my own research obviously, but I feel it would be good to get some info from the experienced people on this forum.

    Thanks a lot,

    quidco is a cooperative.
    For the consumer, it offers retrospective cashback deals on a range of retailers and works through cookies.
    The cashback varies according to retailer and the retailers benefit from direct links etc

    lol, i just never looked into quidco, but with everyone saying how much money theyve saved and earned i thought i might as well

    The Quidco site explains "in detail" how it works. Have you bothered reading the help? Joining, though, is up to you. It's difficult to see how you could actually lose money with Quidco but, if you think that this is possible, don't sign up.

    I've read the help yeh, and theres a couple things i dont understand;
    what does that £50 in PayPal thing mean? Have you people on this forum actually earned a lot of money from Quidco?

    if you have more in your account than £50 it will not payout through payal, you will need your settings set to BACS

    quidco

    Here's my overview, if you ignore £85 from december which shouldn't even be tracking... quidco will never make me rich (obviously) but it's money I wouldn't have got without it.

    BACS is probably better as it goes straight to your bank account and you can withdraw it as cash for free. PayPal charge fees for receiving and withdrawing money.

    Another thing I'm confused about; there are many deals posted on this forum for example the Asus Laptop yesterday; if I follow the direct link given on this forum, how do I get my quidco cashback? How do I go for deals submitted on this forum while still getting Quidco cashback?

    Thanks again,

    What are they?

    Cashback sites pay you money if you purchase products through their links.

    How do they work?

    Cashback sites are a form of internet advertising. There are many internet shops out there and these shops reward websites for directing traffic to them. When you click on an advert banner or link on one website (affiliate/publisher site) and then go on to purchase an item from the site they link to (seller site), the publisher will often get a commision. This is called affiliate marketing. Heres a diagram to help explain how it works.

    When normally the affiliate site will keep the commision they get cashback sites will pass this commision onto the customer. This means if you are a regular internet shopper you could save yourself lots of money.

    How do cashback sites make money?
    There are a few ways that cashback sites make money.
    They do not pass on 100% of the commision, often cashback sites will only give you half of the commision and keep some for themselves. Although some will give you all the commision.
    Charge an annual fee. Some cashback sites will charge a small annual fee for their services usually taken from the cashback you earn.
    Charge a fee to withdraw your savings. They may charge a small fee for you to transfer your savings to your bank account.
    Earn interest from your money. Many cashback sites will require you to earn a certain amount in cashback before you can withdraw it, this means that they can earn interest on your savings in the meantime.

    Personally I prefer to use topcashback it doesnt charge an annual fee, however it has less merchants compared to quidco.
