You will never miss a cashback opportunity ever again with the “easy-to-use and install” Backify browser extension. It has been carefully designed and created to automatically detect when you’re on a website with which we are partnered. It will then send you a prompt to activate your cashback, and the rest is done for you.

What is a Browser Extension?

A browser extension can be part of a stand-alone app or part of an internet browser. For example, a browser extension expands a web browser's functionality by installing specific toolbars, adding buttons, links, or other useful functions, like pop-up blocking.

The Backify browser extension is referred to as a “reminder tool”, which alerts you when you are visiting a store that Backify is partnered with, allowing you to earn cashback that you would have missed otherwise.


Step One

The first thing to do is install the extension, and you can start this process in one of two ways. Either head over to our Homepage and scroll down until you reach the section titled “Get Backify in your browser” and click the “Install Now” button.


Step Two

Our link will take you to the Google Chrome Store. If you are using Microsoft Edge or Safari, you will have to follow their specific steps:

  • Microsoft Edge -

  1. Open Microsoft Edge and go to the Chrome Web Store.

  2. Select Allow extensions from other stores in the banner at the top of the page.

  3. Select Allow to confirm.

  4. Select the extension you want to add (Backify Browser Extension) and select Add to Chrome.

  5. At the prompt showing permissions required by the extension, carefully review the permissions, and select the Add extension button.

  6. You'll see a final prompt confirming the extension has been added.

  • Safari - TBC

  1. Option for Safari is to be confirmed in the near future

If you are using Chrome as your browser, click the “Add to Chrome” button.


Step Three

A pop-up box will appear and ask you to confirm whether you want to “Add ‘Backify’?”. Click on the “Add extension” button to confirm.


When the installation is completed, you will be prompted to sync across all of your devices. Make sure you turn this on to avoid missing out on any cashback.


Step Four

An icon shaped like a puzzle piece will appear on the top right of your web browser. Click on this icon and a box will appear that shows you your installed extensions. Click the “Pin” button to keep the Backify extension visible in your browser and which will allow easy access to all of its features.


The extension is now successfully installed on your browser.


Step Five

You will now need to log in through the extension icon to connect with your Backify account. Once you have done this, you will be automatically redirected to the Backify website, and you will be ready to begin shopping.

If you ever want to change the settings within the extension, simply click the Backify logo in your web browser. All of the available features can be managed under the ‘Settings’ tab within the extension itself. You are in full control.


All the steps to install the extension are now completed, and if you have popups activated, you will never miss a cashback opportunity ever again.

Using the Browser Extension

The Cashback Popup

When you visit a store that Backify supports, a pop-up will appear in the top right corner of the page to notify you that there is some cashback to be earned! Hit that “Activate” button, and continue shopping as normal.


Google Search Integration

Even if you’re not sure where you want to shop quite yet, or you’re just browsing on Google, Backify has your back. With the Backify extension active you will see that we offer cashback on stores before you even visit them.


Always make sure that you are visiting the store that covers the region you live in. For instance, if you are shopping at Foot Locker and you are located in the UK, the correct store would be rather than

Now you are truly ready to start earning whilst you shop!
