    Question Please how do i start a cash back site ?
    I have been thinking on how to start a cash back site, knowing the theoretical side to it; that the cash back site shares its commission with the customer. what i haven't been above to figure out is:

    - How do i track customer "A" purchase activity on the merchant platform in other to reward customer "A" accordingly.
    - Is it API? Cookies? i really don't know

    How can i do that?

    How do i achieve the technical part of a cash back site ?

    If my question is not well structured, kindly ask me

    Thank you

    <rant> The answer is way more intense than you're going to get in a forum. I'm sure there's probably a template that you can buy for it, but you need to ask yourself what you're going to do to make your cashback site different than the others that are established. Do you have budget to promote it and build a brand? If not, you might want to try something else. There are tons and tons of cashback sites out there and very few stand out or distinguish themselves to the point where they can be successful. I'd really love it if people who were trying to get started would think beyond "it's working for RetailMeNot, so I can do it too... or, if eBates is successful, I should do that. "

    Solve problems for people, do something in a new way that adds a benefit. This cookie cutter coupon and cashback play is a waste of pretty much everyone's time if you haven't given consideration on how to differentiate and how to fund it all.

    You should consult a webdeveloper and see if they can build you something
