Yes, pending cashback amounts are temporary and subject to change after confirmation from the online store.

When a purchase is tracked, most online stores do not provide us all the information required to accurately estimate the cashback amount. For example, the cashback may vary based on whether you are an existing or new user at the online store. Also, the platform used for purchase (e.g. desktop) and the category of the product purchased may affect the cashback. Many pieces of this information are made available to Items.com only after the cashback confirmation and so the pending cashback amount is an estimate and subject to change.

In case you believe your cashback was confirmed for an incorrect amount, please visit the contact us page to file a complaint under "Cashback Confirmed For Incorrect Amount".

All purchases are first marked as "Tentative" before they can be approved. Each merchant has unique rules and exceptions that we must adhere to. Your rewards will be marked "Approved" only when they are approved by the merchant affiliate program. Please note that this process varies for different merchants and can sometimes take up to 90 days after the purchase.
