Acquiring Nectar Points: An eBay Shopping Guide

Every time you make a purchase on eBay, you have the opportunity to accumulate those highly valuable Nectar card points. Setting up this process is incredibly simple, yet many individuals fail to take advantage of it.

When you pay with PayPal, whether it be on the website, mobile website, or app, you earn a remarkable 1 point for every £1 spent. This is applicable to nearly all transactions. It's important to note that the maximum number of points that can be earned per item is 5,000, equivalent to spending £5,000.

How many Nectar points can you accrue?

Points are determined based on the price of the item itself and do not include postage charges. Interestingly (and rarely seen elsewhere), points are rounded up when they reach 99p. For instance, if you purchase an item for £10.99, the value is rounded up to 11 points. However, if the item costs £10.95, you would only receive 10 Nectar points.

Which eBay listings are eligible for earning points?

Virtually all listings on eBay will contribute to your Nectar point balance. This includes auctions, where you place bids on items. Additionally, if an item has a "buy it now" price, you will receive points based on the amount you pay. Even if you make an offer (Best Offer) and it is accepted, you will earn points based on the final agreed-upon price of the item. Please keep in mind that it takes up to 28 days for the points to appear in your account after making a purchase. If you receive a refund for an item, the corresponding points will be deducted within 28 days as well.

Collect Nectar points on eBay

How to accumulate Nectar points on eBay

Linking your Nectar account to your eBay account is an incredibly straightforward process. Simply navigate to the Nectar page under "My eBay" and enter your Nectar card number. Once you receive confirmation, you will begin collecting points whenever you make a purchase and pay with PayPal.

Extra Nectar point offers

Occasionally, there are opportunities to earn bonus points on certain eBay products. These offers will be displayed on the auction page for the specific item. It is important to note that the maximum number of Nectar points you can collect per purchase is 5,000 points, and this limit also applies to any bonus points. For example, if you purchase an item for £6,000 (earning the maximum of 5,000 base Nectar points) and there is a bonus points offer allowing you to collect double points, you will accumulate a total of 10,000 Nectar points.

What items are ineligible for points?

Regrettably, not all purchases are eligible for points. Firstly, in order to earn points, your purchase must exceed 98p. Additionally, points cannot be collected on items in the following categories:

  • Cars, Motorcycles & Vehicles (excluding Parts & Accessories)
  • Holidays & Travel
  • Property
  • Gift Vouchers & Coupons
  • Baby Feeding: Formula

Furthermore, two specific sellers, the Tesco outlet and Genesisuk, do not offer Nectar points.

If you employ sniping tools in an attempt to emerge victorious in an auction, you will procure your desired item through the ".com" platform. However, it is vital to bear in mind that the only means by which you can obtain points is through the employment of the "" site.

In essence, the primary objective is to ascertain whether or not you can amass points. Each listing will exhibit a prominent Nectar logo, accompanied by an indication that points can be accumulated upon making a purchase. Regrettably, this particular feature is not visible on the mobile app or mobile website. Nevertheless, points can still be accrued for eligible items.


Utilizing Nectar Points on eBay

Upon enlisting to accumulate points, an additional option presents itself: the possibility to expend acquired points.

For every 500 points accumulated from Nectar, a sum of £2.50 is made available for expenditure.

In order to commence expenditure, follow these steps:

  • Visit the Nectar page.
  • Verify your Nectar card particulars.
  • Nectar will dispatch an email to assist in confirming your details.
  • At this juncture, you will be able to convert your points into vouchers, which may be employed to make purchases on eBay.
  • Upon checkout, designate this option as the payment method.

Conversion of Points and Utilization of Vouchers

Once you are fully established in terms of point expenditure, you may now request vouchers for use in acquiring items on eBay.

It is imperative to determine the precise number of points you wish to convert and subsequently select "Get It Now."

Vouchers need to be obtained in increments of 500 points (£2.50) at a time, with a maximum cap of 40,000 points (£200) per voucher.

All of your vouchers will be stored, readily accessible for utilization within the confines of My eBay. Simply select them as the designated payment method (you will initially need to choose PayPal).

When it comes to shopping, the total purchase amount must be at least £10, exclusive of any postage expenses. However, it is permissible to employ multiple vouchers.

In an added stroke of fortune, you will still amass Nectar points on your acquisition, even if you are utilizing Nectar points to finalize the purchase!

Beware: Nectar Points Have an Expiration Date!

It is crucial to note that the vouchers possess an expiration date. Therefore, it is imperative that you possess a clear plan for their utilization before exchanging them! You have a span of 12 months from the date of issuance to employ them, failing which you will forfeit their value. Your account enables you to track their respective expiration dates (excluding the mobile website or app).

Furthermore, once the vouchers have been exchanged, reversion to points is not a viable option.
