Evoshare is the very first platform to offer cash-back rewards into your retirement account or towards your student loan. As of today, they have partnered with over 650 online retailers to offer up to 30% cash-back on the everyday purchases you are already making online.
EvoShare is also great for small business owners looking to create a greater appreciation and loyalty to their product or service. Unlike Groupon that offers your customers a one-time discounted offer, EvoShare offers ongoing value by providing your customers with ongoing cash-back into either their retirement accounts or towards their student loans.
Whether you are someone who is already shopping online or a small-business owner looking for a unique way to provide your customers with ongoing value via cash-back, you will love how EvoShare provides a ton of value to both businesses and consumers.

Getting Started with EvoShare in Minutes
Setting up an account is extremely simple, however I am going to walk you step-by-step through the process so you know exactly how it works, what it looks like, and what to expect.
Step 1: Sign Up for Free
Head on over to Evoshare’s website and click on “Sign Up”
Step 2: Create an Account
Choose whether you would like your cash-back rewards applied to your retirement accounts or towards your student loans. This can be changed again later if you’re not quite sure.
Step 3: Link Your Debit/Credit Card, Bank Account, or PayPal Account
EvoShare does not store any of your banking credentials and your private information is kept safe using Yodlee. Yodlee is a leading data aggregation and data analytics platform and their clients include 12 of the 20 largest U.S. banks and 1,000s of other companies.
You can choose from the common banks listed below or you can type in your bank, credit union, or financial institution in the space provided. I was able to find my small local credit union right away.
Step 4: Login To Your Bank or Credit Union
Depending on the security rules for your bank, you may need to have your phone nearby to verify access to your bank/credit union. Also, notice how Yodlee is actually handling this process and not Evoshare. You can read up on how Yodlee keeps you safe here.
Step 5: Link Your Retirement Account
You can choose from all different retirement options, however if you do choose “other”, you will be directed to contact EvoShare to have them help you over the phone. Many government employees who have a 457 or a TSP will need to choose this option.
If you are linking your 401(k), you will be asked to provide your employer’s name and contact information. If linking to a ROTH IRA or traditional IRA, you will only be required to have both routing and account number for your IRA institution.
Note: EvoShare will be contacting your retirement plan coordinator on your behalf to facilitate the transfer of funds from inside your EvoShare dashboard and into your retirement account of choice. There is a $3 per month cost per employee for your employer.
Step 6: Shop Online and Earn Cash-Back
Shopping online via EvoShare is extremely simple. If you are using a Google Chrome, you can download the extension here. The extension will light up in your browser whenever you land on a site EvoShare is affiliated with and you can start earning cash-back with a click of a button.
If you are not using Google Chrome, then the best option is for you to shop through your EvoShare Dashboard.
