You can use Rakuten PopShops content on any number of your websites. Check to see if your networks require utilizing different tracking IDs for different websites.
To find instructions on how to locate your correct affiliate ID for each of the networks please login and click on Settings. Click on "Add affiliate ID" and you can find detailed instructions on where to find your affiliate ID.
Yes, you can use multiple affiliate IDs if you are Enterprise plan or above. To do so, create a "profile" of affiliate IDs from the Settings tab in your Rakuten PopShops account. You can then select which profiles to utilize from "Pop it in" tab in ShopBuilder and from "catalogs" tab for API.
You can use affiliate-defined sub-ID tracking to help you manage your sales. Each network gives this "sub ID" tracking a different name, but in a nutshell it appends the text (or code) that you want to the URL. You can then run reports at the network level for that sub-ID. Here are examples of the various labels given by networks to this type of tracking:
With ShopBuilder you can either use the Preferences tab or add a line of code to your "Pop it in" code for a dynamic Sub-ID (Data Pack plans and above for dynamic sub-IDs).
With Rakuten PopShops API service you can dynamically append any information, including Sub IDs for commission tracking (reported via your network account) using parameter "&tracking_id=". This will have your custom subid/sid to be dynamically appended in any final affiliate product urls. Also, you can on any Rakuten PopShops redirect url (r.popshops.com) append sub ID information by inserting "/" followed by sub IDs at the end of the Rakuten PopShops url.
