Link Locator API


The Link Locator API is provided by the Rakuten Advertising API Developer Portal. Visit the portal for a complete list of the APIs we offer.


The Link Locator API allows you to easily search for and download different types of links and creative from your advertiser partners. With the Link Locator API, you can:

  • Retrieve advertiser partner information by advertiser ID.
  • Get advertiser information by advertiser name.
  • Filter advertisers by application status.
  • Retrieve advertiser partner information by category ID.
  • Retrieve advertiser partner’s creative categories.
  • Retrieve text, banner, and Dynamic Rich Media (DRM) links from advertiser partners.

There are two different categories available:

  1. With the Advertiser Information Category, you can receive information about our advertisers such as advertiser name, category, offer name, and commission details. Use this information to create and update a database.
  2. With the Advertiser Creative Category, you can download various kinds of links directly from the advertisers you are partnered with. The links can be accessed based on the creative category advertisers place them into and on the types of creative advertisers offer.


You can test the web service in the portal. Use your Publisher Dashboard login credentials to log in.


You need the API access token to make a successful call. View instructions for retrieving an API access token.
