Payment Options

Introduction

Rakuten Advertising pays publisher commissions by PayPal, direct deposit (ACH), or check.

When setting your payment method in the Publisher Dashboard, keep the following in mind:

  • You can only select one method of payment for your account.
  • Your payment options are based on the country you are in and the network your advertiser partners belong to. Refer to the tables below to see the options available for you to receive commission payments specific to the country in which you are located.
  • Some advertiser networks and payment options are mutually exclusive. For example, if you select check payments, you will not receive payments for commissions earned for advertisers in networks who do not pay via check.
  • Checks and PayPal payments are made in the advertiser network currency: for example, commissions earned from advertisers in the US network are paid in USD.
  • Direct Deposit is paid in the local currency of your publisher account location.
  • Payoneer is not an available payment option.

Check

Checks are mailed to the account address displayed in your Account details page.

Direct Deposit

Payments can only be deposited in a bank account with the same legal name and country address as your Rakuten Advertising account registration. There may be bank fees associated with the currency conversions. Contact your bank to better understand their policies.

You can find the necessary ABA routing number or SWIFT code and account information on your check or by contacting your bank. Enter your bank account information carefully. We are not responsible for verifying any account information or account ownership. If your account information changes or you want to deposit in a new or different account, change your bank account information in the Publisher Dashboard.

PayPal

PayPal is widely available and a common choice that allows access to multiple networks. However, if you select PayPal, you will not be able to receive payments for commissions earned from advertisers in the Brazil network. Learn more about using PayPal.
