Rakuten Canada

If you’re a Canadian resident, we encourage you to join Rakuten.ca, our Canadian site dedicated to bringing you the best Cash Back shopping experience.

Benefits of becoming a Rakuten.ca member

  • Big Fat Checks and PayPal payments are paid in Canadian dollars
  • All stores on Rakuten.ca are either based in Canada or have been verified to have Canada-friendly shipping policies

Canadian shopping on Rakuten.com

While Rakuten.ca stores all ship to Canadian addresses, some stores on Rakuten.com may not. If you’re a Canadian resident and decide to shop with Rakuten.com instead of Rakuten.ca, you'll want to verify that the stores you shop at will ship to Canada.

In addition, please be aware of the following currency conversion details:

  • Rakuten.com Cash Back Balances are displayed in U.S. dollars, not Canadian dollars
  • Orders reported to Rakuten.com in Canadian dollars are converted to U.S. dollars
  • Rakuten.com Big Fat Checks are paid in U.S. dollars, so check with your financial institution regarding policies, fees and currency conversion
  • Rakuten.com PayPal payments are converted to Canadian dollars; please see PayPal’s User Agreement for more information

Company Overview

Welcome to Rakuten, the best way to earn Cash Back and find deep discounts when you shop. Since 1997, Rakuten has helped shape the way people shop online. We acquired Ebates in 2014 and have grown to over 12 million members to remain the largest, free member-based savings programs in the U.S. To date, our members have earned over $1 billion in Cash Back.

How does Rakuten work?

Rakuten saves you money by using a simple business model: Stores pay Rakuten a commission for sending our members to shop at their websites. Rakuten then splits that commission with you, in the form of Cash Back.

To earn Cash Back:

  1. Join Rakuten: It’s free and only requires an email address and a password.
  2. Start a shopping trip with Rakuten by clicking on one of our links (on our site, in an email or in our mobile app, for example).
  3. You’ll be notified that Cash Back has been activated, and then just shop as you normally would.

And that’s it! Once the store notifies us of your order, Cash Back will be added to your account. Then, every quarter, we send you your Cash Back as a Big Fat Check or PayPal payment.

How is Rakuten different?

Whenever you click through a link to shop at a store (from social media or in promoted search results, for example), it’s likely that store is paying for your click. The difference in shopping with Rakuten is that when stores pay us, we pay you.

Even better:

  • Membership is free.
  • There’s no limit to how much Cash Back you can earn.
  • There are no rebate forms to mail in or points to count—we just send you your Cash Back, no strings attached.
