I did Smart Buy purchase on Amazon during last month Xmas offer (upto 15X). I placed order using chrome troguh HDFC smart buy website but it is not detected as Smart buy Transactions. In statement it is posted as normal Amazon transactions.

Anyone experienced same or want to share their experience on HDFC smart buy tracking.

I use Chrome, HDFC smartbuy, amazon. No fuss in recording the transactions under SmartBuy. And most importantly adblocker disabled on these sites. This is what is suggested.
You need to add products after navigating to amazon from smartbuy portal, and not to close any related tab until you are done with the transaction.

You should have cancelled the order after the transaction is not seen as smartbuy in the transaction details of the card if you are serious of the cashback.

Always clear your history and cookies before placing smartbuy order. If you don’t do that, it will be tracked under the previous cookies session or affiliate link which you opened long back or recently .

Will they track if transaction is done on Chrome incognito mode?

They will write “Amazon HDFC Smartbuy Mumbai” for Smart buy txns, else normal txns posted as “Amazon Seller Services Mumbai”

Not always. Sometimes it will be just Amazon SSM.
