Using Discovery Miles to Pay for Items
Posted by bidorbuy Marketing, Last modified by bidorbuy Marketing on 02 March 2016 09:17 AM

Discovery Miles

Now you can spend your Discovery Miles on a variety of products available from Sellers who have opted to accept this payment method. Sellers have the ability to turn this facility on and off, so not all items will include Discovery Miles as a payment option.

Currently, 1 Discovery Mile = 10 cents or 10 Discovery Miles = R1.

Sounds great, but how do I redeem my Discovery Miles on bidorbuy?

It's really easy.

Step 1

First thing you need to do is to check that the item you wish to buy can be purchased with Discovery Miles.

You can do this by one of the following three methods:

Method 1: Visit the Discovery Miles section on bidorbuy to find all items you can buy with your Discovery Miles.

Method 2: When browsing or searching for items, use the Discovery Miles Payment option filter, situated in the column on the left.

Method 3: Stumbled upon an item you’d like to buy? Open the listing and click on the "Payment & Shipping" tab.  If you see there a Discovery Miles icon, it means that you can buy that item with your Discovery Miles. (Note: Deal of the Week items have this information under "Payment").


Step 2:

Proceed through checkout as you would for any other item. When you get to the end of checkout, select the "Pay with Discovery Miles" option.


Step 3

Enter the amount that you would like to pay with your Discovery Miles. You can pay the full amount with your Discovery Miles, or you can make a partial payment and top-up with another method. Please note that if you would like to make a partial payment, you need to enter the Discovery Miles amount at this step. Important: you need to keep that amount the same at the next step. (You may want to visit the Discovery Miles website to check your Miles balance).


Step 4

You will now be redirected to Pay-U where the allocation of your Discovery Miles will take place. After logging in with your Discovery Miles details, you will be able to view how many Discovery Miles you have available and enter the amount that you set in the previous step.


Click "Pay now" and you're done. You will be redirected back to bidorbuy to your payment confirmation page.

You will then receive your payment confirmation email, with the Seller's details, as you would for any other purchase.

What Discovery Miles can’t pay for

Discovery Miles is unfortunately not available for:

  1. Products not set to accept Discovery Miles (please see Step 1 of this article).

  3. Orders under R20.
