Important things to know

If you've made a purchase using WeShop and the transaction has been updated to remove your shares, here's a few different reasons why your purchase was declined:

If you've partially returned your purchase (e.g. you've bought 3 items and returned 1 of the items), the value of your transaction will change in your dashboard and shares awarded will be adjusted accordingly.
You've made a purchase and it broke the Important Things to Know by the retailer (for example, you've booked a flight using, where we only award shares for accommodation bookings).
You've made a purchase and it was flagged as fraudulent.
You've made a purchase and the transaction didn't go through due to payment failure (including failing credit checks).
You've used a discount code (including blue light, student discounts & discount codes) that wasn't supported by WeShop.
