Transactions and Payments of Generated Funds

3.1 Consumer Rights

All purchases/transactions are between you and the individual retailer. The individual retailer’s sales Terms and Conditions apply. Any defect or faults with the goods purchased are the sole responsibility of the retailer from whom you purchased the goods. YourChange cannot accept any liability for goods or service purchased by you from retailer (third party) sites.

3.2 Commission and Remuneration Generation

As part of the YourChange’s service, you will generate donations (commission) when shopping from our listed retailer’s. The retailers agree to donate a fixed lump sum per purchase or percentage of the purchase net amount. The applicable deal is clearly stated in YourChange website for each individual retailer. You and your nominated community group split the donation amount 50/50% respectively. The cashback amount is based on the net purchase amount (e.g. exclusive of GST and any shipping costs). You can at any time change your member account default setting to generate from 50% to 100% to your nominated community group. You may also have more than one nominated community group. You may also choose to donate all funds, when you request withdrawal/ payout, to your private bank account.

Note: there may be retailers that demand that the full donation is allocated your nominated community group. In this case, it will be clearly detailed in the retailer section in the YourChange website.

From time to time retailers may increase or decrease the donation paid, in which case the donation illustrated on the YourChange website may be incorrect. The retailer donation conditions change without notification at any time by the individual retailer. The change will be implemented into the YourChange website. YourChange will do our best to maintain accurate information, although we cannot be made responsible for out of date information.

A completed purchase is tracked and the generated funds are displayed in the YourChange member’s account after a minimum of three (3) hours. Your account will show your transactions as ‘uncleared funds’ and ‘cleared funds’. Each retailer has different payout duration and it can take up to three (3) months or longer before the retailer approves and pay the funds to YourChange. This may depend on the returns period for the goods which varies by retailer. The funds will continue to indicate ‘uncleared funds’ until the funds are approved by the retailer and made available to you. No withdrawal request will be accepted until YourChange has received the retailer's payment.

The commission conditions and details are stated for each retailer on our website. Note that certain products, services, or promotions are specifically excluded from the deal of commission. In such instances, some terms, conditions or requirements may apply only to that promotion or sale. It is your responsibility to read and fully understand these terms and conditions, exclusions, and requirements as presented before you commence transaction. Note that some retailers may trade in foreign currency and that your member account will not display the converted amount. However, at payout YourChange will covert and correct your withdraw amount to match the correct conversion in AUD.

If the purchase transaction is rejected (due to rejection by bank or retailer, or goods returned or cancelled by you etc.), the donation will not be received. Should the funds already be in the member’s account and/or community group account, YourChange reserves the right to adjust the account and return incorrect funds to the retailer if requested and available. Please acknowledge that a donation can only be earned when you are logged into your YourChange member’s account and click through to a retailer's website from a link provided on the YourChange website.

It is vital to follow the YourChange’s instructions given on the website and these Terms of Service to enable transaction tracking for your purchase to generate the retailer donation. YourChange cannot be held responsible if the retailer fails to report your purchase transaction to us. Retailers have their own criteria which determine which transactions are valid and genuine. There are various reasons for why a transaction could be deemed invalid and get rejected. These criteria may or may not be advertised by YourChange or the retailer and may be discretionary.

You should notify YourChange if you are missing transactions. There is a feature to utilise in the members account to notify us of missed or failed transactions, and YourChange may conduct an investigation. Should any faults or problems occur we can claim remuneration from the retailer but we may at any point in time stop this process and the retailer’s decision is final. The retailer has the authority to determine if the purchase digital correspondence is correct and valid to enable rebate.

You must submit your claim within 30 days of the missing/failed transaction. You shall provide accurate and correct information about the transaction. Failure to provide required transaction information may result in rejection of your claim. Moreover, some retailers will not accept any manual claims and in such a case YourChange is unable to claim for commission on your behalf.

All claims are to be communicated to YourChange directly. Under no circumstance must the members contact the retailer(s) in regards to these claims. However, subject to circumstance, we may need to direct you to contact the retailer or another third party directly.

Please note that some pages in YourChange’s website may contain links to age-restricted retailer websites that may contain adult material of a sexual nature. You must not click on these links or enter these websites if you are under 18 years of age.

3.3 Withdrawal of Member Generated Funds and Account Validity

You should use the withdrawal feature in the members account to request for your cleared earnings to be paid into your personal nominated bank account. The following conditions apply:

  1. No withdrawal request will be accepted until a transaction has been confirmed cleared in your members account and after YourChange has received payment from the retailer(s),

  2. Minimum withdrawal threshold of $10,

  3. Payment is actioned by YourChange on the first bank day following month after the funds have been declared as ‘cleared’,

  4. Payment to Australian bank accounts is only acceptable.

Allow for bank transfer times of maximum 5 days before the funds are available in your nominated bank account. YourChange have no control of the bank's transaction times or processes.

You should not use promotion codes or vouchers from other sources than YourChange in combination with our service. Transactions, as described, may be deemed invalid and rebate rejected hence the purchase is unlikely to be tracked back to us. YourChange is not responsible and is not liable for missed commission or rebate due to user error. Note that YourChange does not control the validity of the vouchers and sales offers consequently cannot be held responsible for the validity of the voucher code or sales offer.

YourChange will always pay donations/commission where money has been received from a retailer and tracked to your member account provided your account with YourChange remains active. This with the conditions that the transactions are deemed genuine, valid and the terms of the purchase to the retailer is met.

Until your generated funds balance reaches the minimum threshold withdrawal amount, YourChange is not liable to you for any payment. Note that, the minimum amount is not holding donation payments to your nominated community group.

3.4 Payment into Member nominated bank account

You are entirely responsible for the account information you provide and the accuracy of the provided information. YourChange will only approve and process a bank transfer for payments of generated funds where the nominated bank account name is the same as or, in the case of a joint bank account, includes the name under which your membership account was registered.

YourChange will not take any action to track or attempt to reverse a transaction to an account you have provided in error or refund such a transaction.

In the case of a rejected bank transfer, YourChange may charge you an administration fee of $15.

If funds are credited to your nominated account due to accidental computer error, software error or human error. YourChange will without notice adjust, reverse or in other ways correct the transaction.

Commissions are not taxable and the donations to your nominated community group are not tax deductible nor made in your name. Therefore, YourChange cannot issue a receipt for any donation.

3.5 Payment Schedule to Member and Community Group Accounts

Member Payments

Subject to your withdrawal request, YourChange will execute the bank transfer for your cleared funds to your nominated bank account on the first business day of the following month. Allow 3-5 business days for the funds to arrive into your bank account.

Community Group Payments
