Sainsbury's warns Nectar customers 'it'll no longer be possible' from September

Sainsbury’s is making a big change to Nectar in weeks for anyone who shops on eBay. In just over seven weeks, shoppers will no longer be able to collect or spend Nectar points directly on the eBay website or app, Sainsbury's has confirmed.

At the moment, shoppers who spend on eBay can earn one Nectar point for every £1 they spend. However, this will no longer be possible in a few weeks. To earn points on eBay, you'll need to shop through Nectar from September 1.

Customers can earn two points for every £1 they spend via Nectar. New rules announced today say that in order to earn Nectar points when buying something on eBay, customers will need to shop via Nectar.
