Shop Rewards Terms and Conditions

Last modified: January 13, 2023

The Shop Cash rewards program, including Shop Cash Promos and Earned Shop Cash (defined below) (“Shop Rewards”) is offered by Shopify Inc. and its affiliates (“Shopify”, “we”, “us” or “our”). Participation in Shop Rewards is subject to these Shop Rewards Terms and Conditions (“Shop Rewards Terms”), the Shop Terms of Service, the Shopify Privacy Policy, and any other agreement you may enter into with Shopify from time to time (the “Shop Terms of Service”), which are incorporated herein by reference. Any new features or tools that are added to the current Shop Rewards offering will also be subject to the Shop Rewards Terms.

1. Eligibility

In order to participate as a Rewards Member in Shop Rewards you must reside in the United States and be 18 years of age or older with a valid Shop account in good standing (“Shop Account”). You may only have one Shop Account and may not share memberships or have multiple memberships. However, there may be more than one Shop Account in a household. Memberships cannot be merged or transferred. Shopify may make Shop Rewards available on a rolling or staggered basis such that not all individuals will become eligible for Shop Rewards at the same time or receive the same benefits. By participating in Shop Rewards you agree to the Shop Rewards Terms. If you do not agree to the Shop Rewards Terms, do not participate in Shop Rewards.

2. Promotional Offers

  1. As part of Shop Rewards, Shopify may, in Shopify’s sole discretion, create and make available to you promotional offers that may be redeemed for discounts on purchases in the Shop App, or other features or benefits related to the Shop Services, subject to any additional terms that Shopify establishes on a per promotional offer basis (“Shop Cash Promo(s)”). Shopify or third parties may offer additional or accelerated Shop Cash Promos or other benefits, which may be time-limited or while quantities last, and will be awarded as described in the applicable Shop Cash Promo and subject to any additional terms set forth in such Shop Cash Promo. Shop Cash Promo availability is confirmed at checkout.

  2. From time to time, you may receive Shop Cash Promos that are different amounts, or result in different amounts charged for the same or similar services or goods obtained through the use of the Shop Services.

  3. Similar offers may run at the same time, and qualification for a particular Shop Cash Promo does not constitute qualification for any other Shop Cash Promo, Shop Reward or other offer or benefit.

3. Earning Shop Cash

  1. As part of Shop Rewards, Shopify may, in Shopify’s sole discretion, allow certain Shop Users to earn Shop Cash on the total purchase amount of an Eligible Shop Pay Transaction (“Earned Shop Cash”).

  2. For clarity, Shop Rewards cannot be earned on purchases made using Shop Pay on third party websites, such as Facebook or Instagram, or via SMS “text-to-buy”, and cannot be earned on the following ineligible items: gift cards, digital downloads, subscriptions, or items using Shop Pay Installments. If a Shop User’s purchase includes one of the foregoing ineligible items, no Shop Rewards will be earned, even on those items that would otherwise be eligible to earn Shop Rewards.

  3. Your ability to use Shop Rewards may be terminated by Shopify at any time. An offer to use Shop Rewards is not confirmed until you see the Shop Rewards applied in your cart at checkout.

4. Acceptance, Redemption, Timing, and Expiration

  1. A Shop Cash Promo may provide a date by which you must accept the Shop Cash Promo. If you do not accept the Shop Cash Promo by the stated date, you will not receive the Shop Cash Promo.

  2. If you earn or redeem Shop Rewards, you become a Rewards Member and these Shop Rewards Terms apply to you.

  3. Shop Rewards are in U.S. dollars (USD) and can only be redeemed on purchases made from US-based Shop Merchants who accept USD. Shop Rewards are applied to the total order value, including shipping and taxes.

  4. Shop Rewards may not be redeemable for all purchases or with all Shop Merchants. For example, Shop Rewards cannot be redeemed for a purchase using a gift card, a purchase of digital goods, a purchase using Shop Pay installments or a purchase of a subscription.

  5. Shop Rewards expire on the date set forth in the Shop Cash section of the Shop App. Shop Rewards may have different expiration periods, and unless otherwise noted in the Shop App, Shop Rewards will expire ninety (90) days after your last Qualifying Activity. In the event of a conflict between the expiration period stated in these Shop Rewards Terms, and the expiration period stated in the Shop Cash section of the Shop App, the expiration period in the Shop App will govern.

  6. You can view and track your Shop Rewards balance and available Shop Rewards, as well as any additional benefits for which you may be eligible as a Shop Rewards member, by using the Shop App. You can also find more information about Shop Rewards and how they expire here.

  7. Shop Rewards (including Shop Cash Promos) will expire (i) one year after the applicable Shop Cash Promo is accepted, or (ii) if you are a Shop User who uses Shop Pay, one year after your last Eligible Shop Pay Transaction, whichever is later (“Expiration Period”).

5. Restrictions

  1. You agree that Shop Rewards: (i) must be used for the intended audience and purpose, and in a lawful manner; (ii) may not be duplicated, sold or transferred in any manner, or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public forum or otherwise), unless expressly permitted by Shopify; (iii) are subject to change and or withdrawal by Shopify at any time and for any reason without liability to Shopify; (iv) may only be used pursuant to the specific terms that Shopify establishes for such Shop Cash Promo; (v) are not valid for cash and may not be used outside of the Shop App; and (vi) may expire prior to your use.

  2. Shop Rewards have no monetary value, and you may not obtain any cash, money or anything of value in exchange for your Shop Rewards except as made available by Shopify. Any use of Shop Rewards are final, and will not be returned except as outlined below, and are subject to review and verification.

  3. Except in the event of a partial return, if item(s) purchased using Shop Rewards are returned and the Expiration Period has not expired, Shopify will first refund the money spent to the payment method used to complete the eligible purchase amount, and then will return the Shop Cash Reward to your Shop Rewards balance. If you use a Shop Cash Promo that multiplies your Shop Rewards for that purchase, and you request a refund, your Shop Rewards balance will only be refunded the amount of Shop Rewards before they were multiplied, and not the multiplied amount. If item(s) purchased using Shop Rewards are returned and the Expiration Period has expired, the Shop Rewards will not be returned to your Shop Rewards balance. For clarity, Shop Rewards will only be returned to your Shop Rewards balance if a return is initiated for all items in the order for which Shop Rewards were used, and Shop Rewards will not be returned to your Shop Rewards balance if only part of the order is returned.

6. Shopify Rights

  1. Shopify reserves the right to withhold or deduct credits or other features or benefits obtained using Shop Rewards by you or any other user in the event that Shopify determines or believes that the use or redemption of the Shop Rewards was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of the applicable Shop Rewards terms or these Terms.

  2. Shop Rewards may be revoked where Shopify believes in its discretion that Shop Rewards were earned in connection with any fraud, abuse of the platform, or violation of the Shop Rewards Terms.

  3. Shopify reserves the right to cancel, suspend, terminate or modify Shop Rewards or any part thereof, at any time without notice and without further obligations to Rewards Members, including, but not limited to modifications which govern how Shop Rewards are earned on and after the date of change or change the value of rewards or other benefits. No Shop Rewards will be earned or redeemed after the effective date of termination. Any and all changes or amendments to these Shop Rewards Terms will become binding upon all members immediately.

  4. Shopify’s rights and obligations under Shop Rewards may be assigned or transferred by Shopify to any other related or unrelated entity at any time, and performances shall be the responsibility of that entity.

  5. All questions relating to Shop Rewards or interpretations of these Shop Rewards Terms will be at Shopify's sole discretion and Shopify's decisions will be final.

7. How to view your Shop Rewards

You can view your current Shop Rewards balance by navigating to your profile settings in the Shop App. If you think your Shop Rewards balance is incorrect, you must report your issue using the help center section in the Shop App. You should retain all receipts and documentation as may be necessary to verify your issue. For verification, you may be asked to provide certain information. All personal information collected from you in connection with your use of Shop is governed by the Shop Privacy Policy. Failure to supply necessary information or documentation may result in an inability to reward Shop Rewards.

8. Account termination

Participation in the Shop Rewards is a privilege granted to Rewards Members, and as such can be suspended, revoked or terminated by Shopify at any time and for any reason. If your Shop Rewards membership is terminated, all Shop Rewards associated with your Shop Rewards membership or any other benefits will be forfeited immediately upon termination. If your Shop Rewards membership is terminated due to fraudulent activity or noncompliance with the Shop Rewards Terms, in addition to forfeiting all Shop Rewards and any other benefits associated with your Shop Rewards membership immediately, you cannot participate in or rejoin Shop Rewards or the Shop Services. If your Shop Account is closed or terminated, you will lose all Shop Rewards. This section does not limit any other rights or remedies Shopify may have under the Shop Terms of Service or other agreements with you.
