Is there a way to get paid w/o giving than your SSN? Any tricks? Sign up from different country?
Are you trying to get around paying taxes? If so, then good luck. The IRS will be knocking on your door soon. However, if you're just not comfortable giving a website you ssn, then sign up for a EIN (employer identification number). Basically you're giving ClickBank your tax payer identity as a Sole Proprietorship. This is basically the same as filing individually as long as you have no employees. You'll be mailed a 1099 from ClickBank if you make over $600 in one fiscal year. It is then your responsibility to file your own taxes. Do take into consideration that if you receive a 1099 and don't file your taxes, you will beyond a shadow of a doubt be audited.
you can set up a Nevada or better yet a Wyoming corp, and use a nominee to put their name and social on the corp. Then get a Tax ID with the new corp and you remain hidden. Cost willl be approx $1500 but you will have full protection and privacy of a corp.
Protection and privacy from what? You're affiliate marketing, not performing brain surgery.
no he's right. It's good to have protection and privacy. I would have a NV LLC but I live in Cali so I'm pretty sure that means that I would have to pay extra taxes, but I have to look into it. Other advantages of NV and WY (I think those are the state initials) LLCs are they have no state level taxes, only federal of course. The only thing he's wrong about is it only costs ~$500 if you want it done right. If you know what you're doing and can set it up buy yourself, I believe it only actually costs $75 in Nevada
What about using IP from another country to sign up?
About SSN. I myself don't have my own one. What if I used one of my guardian's SSN? Would that work? (still talking about for CB)
If you were born in the states then yes you do. If you weren't then why do you need one?
So anyone know about signing up from another country?
I'm from Canada, but it's still required to either have an EIN or SSN for the tax thing. All of the affiliates ive signed up for asked for it
Hmm well I never knew you needed it for Canada. But to answer your question, I need to ask you a question first. Are you of age in you providence? I assume 18 is the legal age of majority in Canada but I could be wrong. If not, for now I would recommend signing up under a parent's name if and ONLY IF they agree to it. Then you should use their ssn or discuss getting an EIN with them. This seems far fetched, I know my parents would never have gone for this back in the day. However, if you are of majority, then you DEFINITELY HAVE A SSN. Ask your parents. Here in the states, you're given one at birth. There's no way around getting a social security number. That's how you're identified as a US citizen. If you're leaving information out, aka you weren't born in Canada, then I really can't help you until you divulge that info.
i'm born in canada. im 19 now. maybe ur right that i do have one, but i never needed it before so i never bothered to check. but if for some reason i dont ahve one would using my parents one work? and yeah18 is legal age
You do have one, I promise. Not sure how Canada works, but if your parents won't give you a straight answer, contact your social security department. Might need some birth certificates or something, but I'm positive your parents will have your ss card in a firesafe box, safe or file cabinet somewhere.
