  • As far as my knowledge goes about cashback sites, I think a cashback site can succeed or function even without having a payment gateway. You can do payments manually to your members (using internet banking) or you can send cheques at the members registered addresses.

    You can even start payment processing by various other methods like offering gift vouchers of leading ecommerce stores or by even introducing an option recharge their mobiles/dth.

    So in my opinion, it is not necessary to have online payment gateway service to operate your cashback site.

  • Cash back website is a great way to earn money online without any hassles. It's a simple method which helps the e-Commerce websites to boost their sales, online income for cash back website owners and profitable online shopping solution for the buyers. When a buyer purchases from an eCommerce website through the cash back website, cash back website will get a commission when they confirms the purchase and this commission is shared with the customers. The payments are normally done by PayPal, bank transfer, cheques, gift vouchers from different online shopping websites etc. So if you want to open a cash back website you don't need any payment gateway. You can easily distribute the commission to your customers via PayPal or cheques etc. The gift vouchers from different e-commerce websites are also impressive. However you can also include online recharge in association with this website. In my opinion, it will be a great hit in the web. Some cash back websites are also providing paid online surveys, daily deals, discussion forums etc to make their customers in their website.
