REFUND GIANT REFERRAL PARTNERS
WHAT IS REFUND GIANT?
Refund Giant is a mobile app which helps tourists reclaim 20% VAT on all their UK shopping.
Before Refund Giant, claiming back VAT meant filling in forms at each store you go to, queuing for an hour at the airport, waiting months for your refund, and paying a 50% service fee.
Now, all tourists have to do is download our app and fill in their details. We'll handle the rest. So your guests can focus on shopping, and forget about paperwork.
WHAT IS THE REFUND GIANT REFERRAL SCHEME?
To make tourists aware that they can use Refund Giant to avoid filling in all those forms and paying 50% service fees, we partner with hotels, shops, and tour companies so they can let their guests know about Refund Giant.
In return, the referral partner receives 15% commission on all revenue occurring as a result of their referral. On average, this results in an extra £5.01 in revenue per guest for the referral partner.
For example, if you are a hotel who receives 5000 non-EU guests every year then this is an extra £16,750 in profitable revenue.
HOW DOES THE REFERRAL SCHEME WORK?
Frequently asked questions
Who can use Refund Giant?
Refund Giant can be used by all tourists who live in a country outside the EU.
How does Refund Giant make money?
We charge a 25% service fee. This is half the usual 50% service fee.
This is where our referral partner's revenue comes from.
What if a tourist receives multiple referral codes?
A tourist is asked for a referral code immediately after downloading the app. So as long as a tourist downloaded the app as a result of your referral, you will receive the commission.
How do I work out how much commission I will receive?
To work out your commission, you can do a simple maths calculation.
Emma uses Refund Giant to claim £1000 worth of refunds.
Emma's VAT refund is 20% of £1000, which is £200.
Refund Giant's revenue is 25% of Emma's VAT refund, which is 25% of £200, or £50.
Your commission is 10% of Refund Giant's revenue, which is 10% of £50, which is £5.
