We have integrated the affiliate sign up process with Rakuten Advertising, so you can sign up for the Kobo Affiliate program through your Rakuten Advertising dashboard.
To sign up, you will first need to register on Rakuten Advertising. Once you've logged into your Rakuten Advertising account, you will need to select one of Kobo's affiliate programs (the links will work across territories so you only need to sign up for one. We recommend signing up for your home territory so your finance reports will be in your home currency). To do this, search for Rakuten Kobo in the Advertising search bar, find your desired program, and apply.
Once you've applied, our affiliates team will look over your application and will send you an offer, usually within a week. To accept this offer, hover over the programs tab and select "Private Offers". You will then be able to agree to the terms and conditions and accept your offer!
For a more thorough breakdown of these steps (with video guides!) take a look at our affiliate presentation here.
