    I am just starting this whole affiliate thing, I went to sign up with BeFree and it requires:

    "Individual or Business Tax ID: Your tax identification number. For US individuals, this is your Social Security number. If you are located in a country where services are subject to Value Added Tax (VAT), enter your VAT number."

    I'm just curious what a Canadian has to put in this field?

    Welcome to ABW. You leave that blank, it is for US residents only. When you are approved, you will be asked to fill out and fax to them a certain US tax form. Or you can email Befree and ask them what to do.
    cheers and happy Thanksgiving

    I can't sign up when it is left blank, it tells me to go back and fill it even though I have specified that I am from Canada.

    *update - I just tried N/A and it went through, I hope that isn't a problem

    I think this should solve your dilemma...use your social insurance number!!

    Both Social Security and Social Insurance numbers are nine digits...should work out just fine!!

    Hope this helps...let me know how you make out.

    I think I will email befree to make sure, I don't know how different the numbers are but I wouldn't want to inadvertently use some US citizens number that matches mine in Canada. Also it's one of the numbers I am quite reluctant to give out.

    Canadian SIN #s and US SS #s are different amounts of digits, aren't they?

    Maybe it's ok to type in INTL for now until/if the affiliate manager contacts you? I don't think there is a 1099 equivalent for Canadian affiliates.
