I love finding new ways to make extra cash from home, so when I fo und out about Shoppix I was very intrigued. Can I really make extra cash by taking pictures of my receipts? Let’s find out!
What is Shoppix?
Shoppix is a money making App available on both Android and iPhone where you can snap receipts, complete short surveys, win prizes & collect tokens. These tokens can then be redeemed for gift cards or you can cash out with PayPal. I’ve had the app installed on my phone for around 2 months now and I already have a £5 gift card waiting to be redeemed.
*UPDATE* I reached £20 after around 5 months and received my Amazon gift within a few days. The whole transaction was very smooth and I had no problems redeeming my gift card.
** 2021 UPDATE* I have received so many gift cards from Shoppix now that I’ve actually lost count! These come in so handy around Christmas or my children’s birthdays.
Although Shoppix is great for making £20 here and there, it isn’t the quickest way to make extra money. You can make money in a quicker timeframe with matched betting, mystery shopping or by completing surveys.

Get an extra 200 tokens
Use code D9XLIMDA and you will get an extra 200 tokens once you have snapped your first valid receipt & completed the profile survey. This is my referral code and as always I’m super grateful if you choose to use it.
How to make money with Shoppix?
You simply take a picture of your receipt to be awarded with 25 tokens. There is an extra ‘time bonus’ of 5 tokens if you snap your receipt on the day of purchase and it really is that simple! Shoppix will take a look at your receipt and process it, then, unless they have any queries they will issue you with the tokens.
There are often short surveys available to complete on Shoppix, although these may depend on your demographic. They tend to award you with 10 tokens for each minute it will take. So for instance if you completed a 4 minute survey they would award you 40 tokens.
My regular readers will know that I enjoy completing surveys for extra cash and regularly make £200+ each month from them. You can use Shoppix to get started with surveys without signing up to other survey sites.
As well as tokens you get awarded with scratch cards for completing certain tasks. These scratch cards can often contain more tokens. I have boosted my tokens a lot with these scratch cards as they are usually winners of some amount.
Weekly Prize draw
Each week there is a prize draw on Sunday at 3pm. You can enter the prize draw by picking up scratch cards through the week by entering receipts and completing surveys.
Once you have enough tokens you can redeem them for vouchers or cash through Paypal! The gift cards available at the moment are for Amazon, iTunes and Love2Shop and the cash out levels are as follows.
- 3200 Tokens = £5
- 6000 Tokens = £10
- 11500 Tokens = £20
As you can see it makes sense to save your tokens to hit a higher pay out option if you can. However if you are in doubt then cashing out sooner means you’ve got the gift card guaranteed and ready to use when you need it.
I save my tokens and redeem them once I hit a higher cash out goal. This usually goes towards Christmas alongside my other gift vouchers. If I find I have enough mid year then they also get put towards the children’s birthday gifts.
