Every January, ClickBank sends 1099 forms to ClickBank Affiliates who earn more than $600 in commissions. If an affiliate has not earned over $600, they will not receive a 1099.
US-based affiliates making more than $600 must provide a taxpayer ID. This ID is either a social security number (SSN) or an employer identification number (EIN) that has been issued by the IRS.
The taxpayer ID that you provide must match the payee name on the account. If the account is listed under a business name, but will be reporting under a SSN, you must provide a completed IRS W-9 form to ClickBank via fax (559-210-0502). Be sure to include a cover sheet that indicates your account nickname.
If you are using a US address but are a beneficial resident of a foreign country, you will need to fax a completed IRS W-8ben form (559-210-0502).
ClickTip: When sending faxes, be sure to include a cover sheet that indicates your account nickname.
