Be a Rakuten Influencer

Spread the word about Rakuten and get rewarded! The Rakuten referral program has helped us grow to more than 8 million members, so we make sure to thank those who champion Rakuten. Find out more about how you can become an Rakuten influencer below. Or click here to apply now!

What is the Rakuten influencer program?

We created the influencer program to thank you for spreading your love of Rakuten. There are tons of perks for you and offers to get your followers excited about Rakuten. Unlike many other affiliate programs, we offer a flat fee for every qualified referral instead of a percentage of a sale.

What are the benefits for joining the influencer program?                                                             

Our program rewards you for being an Rakuten ambassador. Here are some of the perks:

  • A $25 cash bonus for every qualified referral you make
  • Invitations to private events and opportunities to meet other influencers
  • Exclusive access to insider news via an influencer newsletter and Facebook group (coming soon!)
  • Best practices to help you maximize referral bonuses
  • Opportunities to participate in giveaways and partnerships
  • And much more to come!

Glad you asked! We host a variety of events to thank our influencers and give them a chance to network with each other.

Everyone had a blast meeting each other, watching the game and hanging out in gorgeous San Francisco.

    How do you track our referrals? I assume a payable referral is when someone sets up an Ebates account?

      Hi Lori,

      You can track your referrals here:

      A referral becomes eligible for the $25 Cash Bonus when that person makes a first purchase of at least $25 with Ebates.
