  • When will my transaction be approved?

    After making a purchase using Opera Cashback, the transaction will be visible in your account with the status Pending.

    After receiving confirmation from the merchant that the transaction was finalized, the status will change to Approved. The amount of time this takes will depend on the merchant. More details on waiting times are available on individual merchant websites.
