Shoppix is an app-based service that pays you to upload your shopping receipts and earn points. The points can then be converted into gift cards.
Using the app, you take a photo of your receipt and rate the shopping trip (it takes 1 second to rate), and then once the receipt has been validated, you are awarded points which are then added to your Shoppix account.
Once you reach 3200 points, you can then cash out £5.00 (or keep the points in there and cash out later and cash out a more significant amount). You can choose to have the cash via PayPal with iTunes, Amazon, or Love to shop gift cards.
Receipts are typically awarded between 25 and 30 points each. There are rules as to what sort of receipts are valid to be used, and it's mainly handwritten receipts, car park tickets and unreadable receipts that are not accepted.
It's a straightforward process, and it makes use of the receipts you already have, acquired on your daily shopping trips. You need to make sure that you upload the receipts within seven days. Otherwise, they will not be accepted.
You can also forward selected online shopping receipts to the service as well. You sign up to do this via the Shoppix app. They will allocate you with a dedicated email address; you forward your online shopping receipts to the email address you gave and will then be given points for your email receipt. Not every online retailer is included in the service, but most of the more prominent name retailers are. If not, the app will tell you the receipt is not recognised, and they will then double-check the receipt, and if ok, they will accept it; if not, you won't receive any points. I've noticed a decrease in the amount of time between cashing out on this app; I forward all my online receipts, so it is worthwhile doing.
You can also earn extra points by conducting special surveys on the app, often asking more in-depth questions about a recent /shopping trip and what you think about the brand, and you will be awarded additional points for doing these, plus you also then get a scratch card, which you may be awarded extra points as well. Still, sometimes you are unlucky, and it's a no-win card!
It can be pretty addictive, and I guarantee you will consider picking up that receipt you have seen on the floor, that someone has dropped, and using that one as well... think of it as keeping Britain tidy!
