Affiliate ID or Encrypted ID


The affiliate ID is a unique 11-character alphanumeric code used in your affiliate links that tells Rakuten exactly which publisher the click came from. It is sometimes referred to as the encrypted ID or tracking ID.

Where to Find It

Your affiliate ID can be found on the publisher dashboard by selecting a link from one of your advertisers.

One way to do this is to go to Advertisers then My Advertisers, click on the name of one of your advertiser partners, and then select the Links tab. Click Get Link next to any link, then select View Code drop-down. The 11-character code following id= is your affiliate ID.


An affiliate ID is different from a site ID (SID). A site ID is used to identify different marketing channels. Our support team uses the SID to locate your records, so please include it in any communications you have with us.
