The listing of a Retailer should not be construed as a recommendation.
- If You enter into a contract with a Retailer listed on API Leisure & Lifestyle (such as a contract of sale), the contract shall exist only between You and the Retailer. In the event of a problem with the product or service that has been ordered all queries, except those relating to Cashback should be directed to the Retailer concerned.
- The tracking of Cashback relies on third party systems used by the Retailer over which We have no control. No liability will be accepted by Reward Gateway Pty Limited for failure in the tracking process on third party systems.
- Cashback may be affected by certain settings or software products installed on a computer which prevent the Retailer from tracking Your actions. If a technical failure on the part of the Retailer, or an incompatibility with the settings on a computer, prevents the Retailer from tracking the qualifying action then We reserve the right not to allocate Cashback. We provide features on the Website for You to check that Your Cashback will be correctly tracked and it is Your responsibility to ensure that you have undertaken this test with a positive result.
- If You report to Reward Gateway Pty Limited within 60 days of a qualifying action taking place that the action has not been reported by the Retailer then Reward Gateway Pty Limited will contact the Retailer on Your behalf in order to try and recover the funds. In no circumstances should You contact the Retailer directly to try and obtain missing Cashback payments. Reward Gateway Pty Limited may choose to make a goodwill payment in some circumstances but this is absolutely at Reward Gateway Pty Limited's sole discretion. We are unable to pursue missing Cashback enquiries with the Retailer where more than 60 days has elapsed since the qualifying action.
- All Cashback payments are subject to Reward Gateway Pty Limited receiving payment from the Retailer. Cashback in Your account has a nominal cash value of AUD0.00001 for every AUD1.00 of Cashback. When Reward Gateway Pty Limited authorises a withdrawal request, Cashback will be converted into $ at the higher rate of AUD0.01 of Cashback = AUD0.01. A withdrawal will only be authorised once payment has been received by Reward Gateway Pty Limited from the Retailer. Transactions where payment has been received can be clearly viewed as "Confirmed" on Your "My Account" tab. In some cases it may take up to 90 days to receive payment from the Retailer. Reward Gateway Pty Limited will be unable to pursue the Retailer for payment where 90 days of a qualifying action taking place has not passed.
- Eligibility for Cashback offers are governed by the terms and conditions of each vendor. It is at the vendors discretion whether a Cashback offer is applicable with the site's existing discounts, advertised offers or methods of payments. These are subject to change by the vendor. You should check the vendor's terms & conditions for any changes to Cashback eligibility.
- Our discount codes work in conjunction with the Cashback offered on our site, but they won’t work with discount codes from other sources. If you do decide to use a discount code from another source, it’s unlikely we’ll be able to award you Cashback as the retailer will pay the Cashback to the site that you got the code from.
Eligibility of Purchases For Cashback
- Unless otherwise stated, Cashback payments are only available on purchases completed online. No Cashback will be paid on phone or post orders. Orders placed online that are later completed or revised by phone are also not eligible for Cashback. In these circumstances You are advised to cancel the order and place a new order online.
- If You return an item, or cancel a subscription before Your obligations with the Retailer are complete then no Cashback will be awarded and Cashback already credited to Your account will be removed. Should You become aware of receiving a Cashback payment that You are not eligible to receive, You must inform Us by contacting the Helpdesk at the earliest opportunity so that the transaction can be removed.

We reserve the right to cancel or amend any Cashback that at Our sole discretion is deemed to have been awarded in error.
Withdrawal of Cashback

The status codes of Cashback payments in Your account are for guidance only and represent 's best understanding of the status of the payment
