For Linkshare, I think you would just use your Australian tax file number, or ABN.
When you come to file your tax return in Australia at the end of the year, you need to add any additional earnings from affiliate marketing to your return, and then work out a final figure to pay in tax. If your affiliate income is more than $4,000 a year, it's probably worth consulting an accountant, as you might be entitled to the small business capital gains tax concessions, or be able to deduct other business expenses etc.
