6. EARNING CASH BACK

Online: In order to earn Cashback on our online stores, you must be signed in to www.yakoyo.com, use the shopping links within the platform and complete your transaction during the same shopping session you started after clicking on the shopping link (“Qualifying Purchase”). If you disable “cookies” on your computer, you will not be able to earn Cashback because cookies are used to authenticate the user and verify whose Member Account is eligible for the Cashback. To determine if a transaction shall qualify for a cashback, shall be at the sole discretion of Yakoyo and the Member understands and agrees to the same. Also, Yakoyo shall not be responsible if by chance a transaction experienced some form of technical or other error that makes it difficult for Yakoyo to trace a sale back to the Member and does not qualify the transaction for cashback.

Offline: In order to earn cashback on our offline stores, once a purchase is completed, you will have to upload a copy of the receipt or a valid document to show proof of the completed transaction. If you fail to upload the receipt or a valid document for the transaction on our platform, you will not be able to earn cashback because we can only trace the transaction through the submitted receipt.

 

7. RECEIVING PAYMENT

To receive your prompt cashback, you must set up and maintain an account with Yakoyo ("Active Account") with all the relevant information needed to process your payment: a working email address where you are able to receive mails, an active bank account, your first and last name, and a password to protect your account. To maintain your Active Account, you must update your information in case of any changes and have shopped via www.yakoyo.com.

Before you can request for the payment of the accrued earnings (Cashback) in your e-wallet, the earnings must have at least three thousand naira (#3000) hence, you cannot make a withdrawal request. The status of your cashback would remain pending until we are able to confirm your transaction from our affiliate partners, hence you shall only receive payment after such transaction whatsoever is completed and we have received the commission payments from our affiliate partners.

In our sole discretion, we may deduct Cash Back from your account in order to make adjustments for returns and cancellations with respect to Qualifying Purchases. Any such adjustments, however, will be made in accordance with this Agreement, any applicable Yakoyo policies and terms, the terms any Affiliate Store offers, and any and all applicable laws, rules, and regulations. The determination of whether a purchase made through a Yakoyo Affiliate Store qualifies for Cashback is at the sole discretion of Yakoyo. If an Affiliate Store fails to confirm a transaction to Yakoyo or fails to make payment of commission to Yakoyo for any reason, Yakoyo reserves the right to cancel the Cash Back associated with that transaction. It is your responsibility to check your Account regularly to ensure that Cash Back has been properly credited and paid when you request for withdrawal and that your Account balance is accurate. If you believe that Cashback has not been correctly credited to your account, you must contact Yakoyo Customer Service within ninety (90) days of the transaction. Should you disagree with any adjustments made to your account or payments made to you, your sole remedy is to withdraw from the usage of our platform.

Also, Yakoyo shall not be responsible if by chance a transaction experienced some form of technical or other error that makes it difficult for Yakoyo to trace a sale back to the Member and does not qualify the transaction for cashback.
