Join Rakuten Affiliate Network - Canada

The Rakuten Affiliate Network Canada network includes Canadian advertisers and U.S. advertisers that ship to Canada. Join the growing Rakuten Affiliate Network in Canada  and take advantage of Canada's young and growing online market.

New publishers joining the Rakuten Affiliate Network (or new Marketing Channels added) after 2012 are automatically opted-in to all networks for which they are eligible. So you don't need to take any action to join international networks -- just sign up as a publisher. If you joined the Rakuten Affiliate Network (formerly LinkShare) prior to 2012, you can add the Canada Network to your account.

Here are some reasons to get started with the Canada Network:

  1. E-commerce in Canada has been growing by more than 38 percent in the past four years.
  2. The Canadian economy is the eighth largest in the world—approximately 70 percent of the population uses the Internet, that's roughly 22 million users!
  3. 82 percent of Canadians would prefer to shop at a Canadian-owned and operated Web site if "price and product were the same."
  4. Capture every sale! Feature Canadian links along with U.S. links and allow your customers to self-select so you capture every sale.
  5. Since many Canadian consumers shop through U.S. sites, offer value to your Canadian visitors by linking to Canadian advertisers and U.S. advertisers that ship to Canada. Add a "For Canadian Users" section to your site or launch a Canada version of your site and see great results!

    Hi Kimberly, you make a good point! I've updated the article with links to information on how to sign up as a new publisher or to add the Canada network if you're already a Rakuten Affiliate Network publisher. As a new publisher, you will automatically be opted-in to all the international networks for which you are eligible. Hope that's helpful!
