Live Search Launches Instant Cashback For eBay Purchases
Microsoft just announced Live Search instant cashback rewards. This instant reward currently only applies to items purchased at eBay. If you make a purchase at eBay, using Live Search Cashback, you should see the rewards instantly in your PayPal account. Yes, you won’t have to wait 60 days to see the money.
Clearly, having instant cashback rewards with all their partners is something we would love to see. But for now, having eBay give you instant cash back is really nice to have.
What about all the past rewards pending 60 day approval via eBay? Well, I checked one of my orders and I currently do not see my cash back reward in my PayPal account. So I assume this won’t impact past orders.
This is one way to get users to trust the Microsoft Live Search Cashback program is to offer the rewards instantly. This is not exactly their response to the major distrust they earned over Black Friday, but it does help.
