Tag Along
  • Q. What is Tag Along?

    Tag Along is a rewards program where you can earn C2i cash by recommending products. Below are a few important points

    You can tag products by clicking on the tag button on the product page. A product can be tagged only by one user at one time. Once a product is tagged no other user can tag it until it has been un-tagged

    Every purchase made by any user for a tagged product, the Tagger will earn a certain amount of bucks on that transaction. One C2I Buck = One INR (this can be used on your next transaction)

    A user can tag up to 10 products at any given time

    Each tag is un-tagged automatically at the end of 15 days. This basically means that your tag on a product would last for 15 days. You may retag the same product only after a window of 48 hours. This is to allow a fair chance to all to participate on top selling products.

    Tagging will be enabled after your first transaction. This is to ensure we have a clean user base with no individual spamming the concept.

    C2i cash will be deposited and usable only after the product is delivered. They will be negated if the transaction is cancelled.

  • Q. What are C2i cash?

    C2i cash is a reward program where you earn reward points against each transaction that you make with us. This is a program to reward our loyal customers.

    C2i cash can be applied only to 50% of the total transaction amount. If you are making a purchase of Rs 5000 then only a maximum of 2500 bucks can be utilized on that transaction.

    C2i cash will be deposited and usable only after the product is delivered. They will be negated if the transaction is cancelled.
