What is Rakuten?
Rakuten is a cashback app that allows users to earn cashback rewards for online purchases made through the app. The app partners with various retailers and offers a percentage of the purchase amount as cashback to the user.
To use Rakuten, users must first create an account and link their credit or debit card. They can then browse through the app’s partner retailers and click on a specific retailer to be redirected to their website. If the user makes a purchase through the retailer’s website, the cashback amount will be credited to their Rakuten account.
How to Get Started?
Sign up: Users must first create an account with Rakuten and provide basic information such as their name, email address, and a password. They can also link their credit or debit card to their Rakuten account.
