How do I apply to join a Rakuten Affiliate Network international network?

Publishers joining the Rakuten Affiliate Network are automatically opted-in to all advertiser networks for which they are eligible. Eligibility is based on your location and the commission payment method you select.

To see which network(s) you are opted-in to, log into your Rakuten Affiliate Network Publisher Dashboard and go to My Account >  Marketing Channels. You should see a screen like this, below, where the Advertiser Networks are listed:

 

 

You can apply to any of the global advertiser networks for which you are eligible by simply checking the boxes in the Advertiser Network section.

Please note: Once you opt into a network, you cannot opt out of it.


If you don’t see available networks to join, it could be because of your payment method settings. You can change your payment method settings in your Publisher Dashboard.

Learn more about your options for getting paid and which networks accept which payment methods in the various international advertiser networks.

    I have an issues, people told me they have purchased from affiliations from my site but I am not receiving any type of paid or percentage as agreed on for advertising for these companies, are Rakuten receiving the money for my advertising for these business and not paying me for my work done to make sales for all these companies/businesses? I have over 46,000 people view my site also and Rakuten has 0.00 and no purchased for all these people who access my site to check out affiliations business, are Rakuten, telling me that not one of 46,000 viewer brought nothing from these sites?

    Hi Sharon, you can check into the status of transactions (orders) in your Publisher Dashboard. Learn how: https://pubhelp.rakutenmarketing.com/hc/en-us/articles/201046796-Transaction-Inquiries-Overview. You'll need to get the order details from the people who say they purchased from your affiliate links first. Just as in any business, you will likely only get sales from a small percentage of the views of your website pages with affiliate marketing links and ads.To learn about what you can do to increase your conversion rate (getting sales from views with well-designed web pages), review these articles https://pubhelp.rakutenmarketing.com/hc/en-us/sections/200634845-Increasing-Conversions-and-Customer-Retention and do more research online and seek out additional marketing training. If you need further assistance with our transaction inquiries, please contact Customer Support using the live chat Support widget at the bottom right, or via email. You can find their contact information in the Support tab at the top of this page.
