    I'm not 100% sure with CJ cuz I never used them long enough to cash out. But I would assume that legally they can't pay you until you provide it. That's how all the networks I'm a part of operate. You can always ask them...

    Just contact them and ask. I don't think they can legally.

    The probably won't pay you. I saw it in the terms and conditions when I signed up. You have to provide one or the other.

    Is there anything preventing you from getting an EIN to use with CJ?

    No, they legally can not pay you without a SSN or EIN on file.

    ^No! You don't have to give them your SSN and you shouldn't ever use your SSN for business.

    Google EIN and apply for one. It's your business' SSN. It is absolutely necessary to do business online.

    For the love of GOD do not post your SSN to CPA companies (or anywhere else for that matter).

    No they won't. It's business. They write-off the payment to you as an expense.
