    Hey, I'm a 15-year-old high school student. I applied into Amazon Associates and already got accepted. I have a bank account, debit card, and PayPal. I haven't made a sale yet and had my site reviewed, but it should be fine.

    I'm just wondering if I'll run into any problems when attempting to withdraw. I haven't submitted a tax form or anything yet, but I'd like to use my real information if that's an option. I'm a US citizen if that wasn't clear.

    No issues there as far as I can see. Just don't be hiring a hooker with your profits.

    I disagree with that, when I was 15 I fucked a hooker in this sketchy motel once on the south side of town while my parents were out of town. 9/10 experience would do again

    You will need to submit the tax info before you can withdraw the money. Just use your social security #. They will send you a 1099 at beginning of next year - you will have to pay taxes on your earnings.

    I'm alright with paying the taxes; I just want to be sure that they won't expose me for being under 18 when I submit my SSN. I suppose they could if they wanted to, but not much I can do about it. Regardless, thanks.

    If you manage to bring 'em sales, they wouldn't complain even if you had 10.

    I was thinking they'd have a problem with it because as a minor my contracts don't have as much meaning and I can break them. I suppose as long as I follow their rules they wouldn't care.

    Thanks for the input everyone
