    Quidco Question and Answers 8th Jun 11 at 11:14 AM
    MSE Additional reading:

    You might like to read our latest Cashback sites news story: Are you a cashback site loser?

    Back to the original post...

    Hi everyone.

    We're very aware from past discussion threads that issues surrounding the collapse of the DGM affiliate network and the non-payment of cashback is still an issue that people feel needs discussion. We're entirely happy for people to discuss it on this separate DGM discussion thread so that it doesn't prevent other forum users getting the answers they need to their other queries. In the past this has often clogged up other threads with pages of posts and has disrupted the question and answer format for other users.

    So we're going to start things from scratch, with a clean slate, with two separate discussion threads, one for DGM discussion, one for cashback questions for Quidco (this one).

    Please remember though, libellous posts including any implication of fraud, lying, cheating aren't tolerated on this forum. Where they're reported to us they'll be removed and we will stop user accounts that keep pushing acceptable boundaries as we are liable.

    Again, any posts made about DGM on this or other threads will be removed when reported and if persistent will result in further action on that user account.

    Please also remember to keep on topic. This is for people to ask about Quidco. If you want to discuss other cashback sites then please start a separate thread if there isn't one already.

    Please help us with this.

    Finally a reminder that MSE has no special relationship with Quidco. It's included in our Cashback Sites guide along with other cashback sites so we take comments to the contrary very seriously.

    Thanks

    Hi everyone,

    @GrantF - I apologise for this, I am happy to take a look at this for you and will raise you a ticket.

    @shymanuk - Are you still experiencing this problem? I have just tested the link and it appears to be working correctly for me.

    @madammim - I am happy to take a look into this for you and I apologise for any disappointment caused. Please be aware that all declining comes from the merchants and affiliate networks. The outcome would be the same with every site like ours.

    Could you please e-mail your username to juliewells@quidco.com? I can then take a close look into this for you.

    Thanks everyone

    LV Cashback - Still waiting

    Ticket raised for transaction 21301460

    Hi

    As a regular Quidco user I am getting really frustrated with this. I bought an LV policy in November and I am still waiting for the cashback. All I keep being told is that their is a slight delay. It's June, its a bit more than a slight delay. I am now getting concerned as Cashback that was always paid quickly is now taking an age to get paid.

    Any suggestions Quidco Rep, apart from wait?

    Hi,

    @Poorhouse - I am very sorry for the delay with this transaction. I do know that there is a delayed batch from this merchant and it is currently being worked on.

    I do fully understand how frustrating it can be whilst you are waiting but please be assured that we are doing everything to ensure this is resolved as soon as possible.

    Kind regards,

    sorry quidco, this just doesnt add up...

    are you saying quidco and TCB are dealt with the same way ref. Vernons?

    3 family members, all different, different addresses and different PC's all signed up via TCB mid Novemember.

    3 DIFFERENT family members did the same but via Quidco.

    all 6 still play there and tracking was quick at both quidco and TCB. all deposited more than enough and have deposited more since.

    all 3 TCB were validated before the end of Jan, and paid shortly after, yet over a month later the 3 Quidco ones are all stuck at tracked, not even validated.

    there HAS to be a quidco issue here. what can it be?

    i would just like to add, your stats are incorrect.

    you state "100% of payments received within 180 days". well, the 3 i refered to back in March are still showing "tracked" only".

    these are now going back to Nov 2010. TCB were tracked AND paid within 8 weeks.

    surely theres something you can do and you must know which 3 accounts i am refering to as it seems those 3 must be the only ones not paid?

    Hi,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention as it does appear that the stats are incorrect for this merchant. I can get this reported to our team who can look into this. There are a few stats that will be incorrect but we are happy to take a look once highlighted to us.

    Regarding your transactions I am very sorry that this is taking longer than we would have liked. These do appear to be delayed and I can assure you that as soon as we do have an update for you we will let you know.

    I do appreciate it can be frustrating waiting and I have noted your comments about other cashback sites. I can't make any comments about other sites but at Quidco we will not make a payment to you until we have received this ourselves.

    I hope that this comes through for you soon.

    Kind regards,

    Is it possible to say why Eon are not on the 'query' list - the drop down list of companies that we can query re no cashback etc...Quidco offer Eon cashback - but don't list them as a query option?
    Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.
    Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
  • quidco Company Representative
    Hi everyone,

    @LittleJaffa - We do allow E.ON cashback claims. Unfortunately if they are not showing in your drop down list then this means that you have not visited them whilst being logged into your Quidco account.

    Any click that you make is recorded and will show in this list even if the merchant does not accept claims.

    I am very sorry that I don't have better news for you on this occasion.

    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    Whenever i raise a ticket with Topcashback, about 99% are succesful. With Quidco, about 99% fail. Topcashback have even offered to pay me from their own money.

    All i ever get from Quidco - is that my payment was paid to another affiliate.

    I have never done cashback without first clearing cookies and restarting the Browser. I also use a different browser for the three cashback sites i use.

    4 questions:-

    1/Is the 3rd party that is getting my money actually Quidco? You always seem to have an excuse or clause from t&c's not to pay up.
    2/Do you ever take action against sites that continue to refuse to pay up.
    3/ Why would you not remove companies who continue to abuse the system - happy to get the custom - but not happy to pay up?
    4/ Many insurance companies now seem to have special landing page for cashback sites - are some adding the cashback to the cost of the policy and charging different rates than going direct? I never seem to get such good prices anymore.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey Quidco,

    Any further news on the Its My View payments which were held up after they switched networks? It is come up for 6 months now.
  • quidco Company Representative
    Hi everyone,

    @techspec – I am very sorry to hear this. I can assure you that we are not the other referrer. We pay all the cashback on to you so if this decline reason is given then there is no benefit to us at all. It is just as disappointing for us. We use the same affiliate networks as every cashback website and it is them who send the resolutions to us. The reason you are given with us would be the same whichever cashback website you used. I do fully understand how frustrating this must be for you.

    If we ever found a merchant was refusing to pay then this would not be tolerated at all but there are only a small number of declined transactions per merchant. If we do ever feel something is wrong then we always investigate this with them. I can also assure you that if we find out that a merchant was deliberately upping their prices for going through us then we would investigate this for you as it would not be tolerated. If you can supply examples then I am happy to take a look into this for you. You should get the same price going through Quidco as you do when you go through directly.

    I really am sorry that you have had these problems. We do find that clearing your cookies should ensure that your transactions are not declined. If you are doing this then it is very rare that a transaction should be declined. Whilst there is usually nothing we can do I am happy to take a look into your account for you if you supply your username to julieswells@quidco.com

    @addictedtosoreen – As this payment will never be claimed we should be able to reclaim this for you. If you can e-mail your username to juliewells@quidco.com then I will get our team to take a look into this for you.

    @terriandaaron – I am sorry to hear your payment has not yet come through. I can assure you that our payment team is working on any outstanding payments and we will hopefully have this for you soon.

    Can you confirm if you ever use any voucher codes with Next not supplied by Quidco and do you ever return any items or amend your order?

    @Poolie – This batch of outstanding payment is specifically being worked on by our payment team. At this stage I cannot give you an update other than to say that it is still being worked on.

    Thanks everyone,

    I hope you all have a great weekend.

    hi i made some online purchases a few months ago and they tracked successfully and payment made this week

    i was very surprised because out of the 6 orders with the same company i returned items from about 4 of the orders

    can quidco now debit my account for a % of the refunded items or not-the confirmation and payment took place well after the refunds were processed

    I thought I'd ask why you've not received payment from this network for old New Vista and High Street Web, When Topcashback received payment from the same merchant last week? Could you explain to me why this is?

    Thanks in advance.
  • quidco Company Representative
    Good morning everyone,

    I hope you've all had a great weekend.


    @celebrate – I'm very sorry about this, and thank you very much for your honesty. Sometimes some transactions can slip through the net, but don’t worry as we can certainly return the cashback to the retailer for you. In order for us to look into this further for you, can I ask you to contact the Quidcare Team by going to Help – I have a transaction/cashback in my Activity Page for something I haven’t bought, what can I do? – Contact Quidcare Team.

    @skyline – I’m afraid we are still chasing up Populus Surveys for payment, I am very sorry for how long this is taking and please be assured we are doing all we can to rectify this problem.

    @iduno86 – I’m afraid we can’t comment on other cashback websites, but as with all cashback; until we receive the payment from the network we are unable to pass this on to you. We do realise how frustrating this is but please be assured that our dedicated payments team are chasing them up on a daily basis.

    Kind regards,
