Rakuten Marketing, which is also referred to as Rakuten Affiliate Network, was born out of a merger between Rakuten, a Japanese e-commerce portal and LinkShare, an online distribution network founded by Stephen Messer and Heidi Messer, in 2005. In 2014, Rakuten LinkShare was rebranded as Rakuten Affiliate Network, which is one of the largest pay-for-performance affiliate marketing networks right now.
