what is xplore?

xplore is a new way to pay and enjoy cashback across independent businesses and communities they call home:

  • Discover unique independent businesses, artisan markets and much more in your own community, or one you're exploring for the first time.
  • Simply add money to your account using a bank transfer or debit card so you're always ready to pay using xplore.
  • Enjoy cashback on everything you buy using xplore. For every purchase you make you get cashback. It's real cash, so you can spend it however you want across our community of independent businesses.

is xplore free to use?

The xplore mobile app is completely free to download and use to explore and discover all things local.

There is a small top-up fee each time you add funds to your xplore wallet. It's a single fee whether you top-up £5, £500 or somewhere in between.

xplore businesses offer an average 5.5% cashback on each purchase, which means that for every £50 you spend using xplore, you will enjoy £2.75 cashback. So you'll recoup the Top Up fee after just a couple of coffees!

By charging a small top-up fee, xplore businesses benefit from 0% card transaction fees.

With businesses spending billions on card transaction fees every year, xplore has been created to save independent businesses from increasingly high running costs, so that they can continue to be the beating heart of our local communities.

*xplore does not benefit financially from the top-up fee. Independent businesses do.
