Q. When will I receive my cashback payment?
We aim to make payments within 2-3 weeks of the e-mail confirming the validation of your claim – this is not within 28 days of your registration. Once received, cashback applications need to be processed by Canon to ensure that we have all the necessary information to validate your claim and arrange payment. Missing or incorrect information risks delaying the validation and payment so please check that you have provided all the necessary correct information.
NOTE: it can take between 3 – 5 days for some banks to process the payment and for it to show on your statement.
We want this process to be as smooth as possible, but Canon cannot be held responsible for any retailers / sellers incorrectly advising customers that payments are made within 2-3 weeks of the date of purchase.
Please note you can check your claim here anytime by logging into your account and using your unique claim reference number (this is on the top right of the confirmation email sent to you which you would have received when you submitted your claim).
Q. How will I know if my claim is delayed due to incorrect or missing information?
Upon having successfully registered online for a Canon cashback promotion, you will be sent by email a confirmation of your application containing both your reference number and personalized log- in details for a website on which you can check the status of your claim and its progress to payment.
If you have registered any incorrect information, this will reflect on that site and you will also be sent an email informing you of the information still required. The quickest way for you to provide us with any missing information is by logging in to that website and updating your details.
You can quickly check the status of your claim here by logging into your account and using your unique claim reference number (this is on the top right of the confirmation email sent to you which you would have received when you submitted your claim).
If you are experiencing difficulties providing the information via the website you may drop us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q. . How will the payment reflect on my bank account?
Cashback payments are made by our fulfilment provider and payments are always referenced as ‘Canon’. Please check your bank account for this reference.
Q: Why is my bank charging me transfer fees?
We will transfer the exact amount of cashback in local currency as advertised and endeavour to use local banks where possible to avoid beneficiary charges. However, Canon cannot be held liable for additional charges levied by your bank and you will need to speak to them if that occurs.
I paid for my product by credit card so why can my payment not simply be refunded back onto that same credit card?
Canon cashback payments can only be made by bank transfer from our bank to the personal bank account details that you have provided at the time of registration.
