What is it?

Dear customers, we are pleased to offer you an opportunity to benefit from your loyalty to NIVO Interactive Shopping. As of the 12th of May 2010, we have added a feature where new customers who open a NIVO account, upon checkout of their first purchase will have the opportunity to specify an email address of a fellow NIVO customer, who referred them to us. For each referred customer who made a successful purchase at NIVO, the referrer will be awarded 2% of the order value (rounded to the nearest whole number) or a minimum of 10 nBucks. nBucks are loyalty points with 1 nBuck being equivalent to R 1.00. You can use your accumulated nBucks as a discount when purchasing from NIVO.


Lets say you have a NIVO account, and you overheard that one of your colleagues is looking for a new notebook. You tell him/her about NIVO and our wide selection of notebooks. He eventually decides to buy from us. Upon checkout he will be prompted for the email address of the person who referred him to us. It is important that he enters your email address as that person, and it is important that this email address is the same as the one used in your NIVO account. He completes the purchase and pays. Upon his/hers order being shipped, you are allocated the appropriate amount of nBucks, which you can see on your nBucks Statement (login required). When placing your next order with us, you will be given the option to use the accumulated nBucks toward the payment for your new order.

The nBucks amount is calculated as follow:

Say your colleague orders a notebook worth R 7,799 and accessories (e.g. Bag & Mouse) worth extra R 700.00. His/her order total will be R 8,499.00. You get 2% of this total credited as nBucks to your NIVO account. The amount will be R 8,499 x 2% = R 169.98 rounded to R 170.00. Thus 170 nBucks will be credited to your account and you will have the opportunity to use them as R 170.00 discount on your next purchase, or accumulate them to a larger amount. Simple!
