You asked for it: instant cashback!

When we asked users about the improvements they’d like us make to Live Search cashback, many said they want to receive cashback instantly instead of waiting for 60 days. Well, I’m happy to announce that we’ve just released the Instant cashback feature with eBay. Instant cashback will be eligible for some, but not all users. Eligible shoppers will be notified online after completing a purchase on eBay.

Here’s how it works

  1. When you search for a product on Live Search — say an Xbox — within the results returned you’ll see an eBay ad with the gold coin cashback icon Image of cashback icon and “Live Search cashback.”
  2. Click the eBay ad to go to and make your purchase.
  3. After completing the payment with PayPal, you’ll receive a message saying you’re eligible for “instant cashback.” Yippee!

  4. The cashback amount is automatically deposited into your Paypal account and posted to your cashback account.

This new Live Search cashback feature ought to make your holiday shopping all the more rewarding. I look forward to sharing many more improvements with you in the coming months.

Happy shopping, everyone!
