New Help Center User Interface - Quick Tour

We’ve updated and upgraded your user experience in the Publisher Help Center to make it easier for you to find the information you need. This new user interface is also optimized so that you can browse the Help Center on your mobile device

You must be signed in to see and search all articles. If you have any problems with signing in, please contact Customer Support so they can understand your individual situation and personally assist you.

This article will take you through a quick tour of the new interface.

Help Center Homepage

We’ve added new features to the homepage to guide you through the Help Center.

Click on the image for a larger version.

Below are the features you will see in the interface; click the + for more information:

Search box
We’ve kept the prominent search box because we know that you like to use search to find what you are looking for. For best results, type in a full question.
Languages available
The entire user interface and article contents are available in US English, French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Korean, and Mandarin Chinese. Select your preferred language from the drop-down menu at the top for an improved user experience.
Custom blocks
A great new feature we have in the new user interface is called “custom blocks.” These are the four boxes below the search box. Each one links to an article or important information particularly geared towards publishers that are new to Rakuten Advertising. There you will find:
  • A road map to success with tips for affiliate publishers.
  • A glossary of common affiliate marketing terms that we know can be confusing to newcomers.
  • A link to a short video explaining how affiliate marketing works
  • A link to an article on how to reach our customer support team. Contacting customer support is a quick way to get more help if you don't find what you're looking for immediately in the Help Center articles.
"Popular Articles"
These are the top 15 most popular articles among our publishers based on our data. If one of these is of interest to you and you think that it might answer your question, you can click directly into the article from the section.
"What's New?"
Here you will see the latest new articles added to the Help Center, along with new comments on articles.
"Browse by Category"
The “Browse by Category” section is yet another way for you to discover helpful articles. It shows all the categories we have in the Help Center:
