    W9 form already?
    A Kolimbo merchant e-mailed me with a request for a W9 form.
    I just joined the program. I have not promoted this merchant yet at all.

    Why do I need to send a W9 so soon? Do I need to send each separate merchant a W9 form?

    Thanks

    Is the taxation information not centralized with Kolimbo?
    When an affiliate uses CJ or LS, the personal taxation information is located at one central place and no matter how many merchants the affiliate hooks up with there is no need to fill out more taxation forms.

    I just signed on with a merchant who e-mailed me saying W9 information was needed when I have yet to even start promoting that merchant.

    Must the affiliate distribute personal taxation information to each and every individual merchant at Kolimbo?

    I e-mailed the merchant but did not get a reply.

    Anybody know?

    Yes, Kolimbo is not a traditional network like CJ, LS or Performics, they are a collection of indys using the MYAP software under 1 roof. So merchants are going to need the W9 if you make over $600 with them, sometimes they ask upfront for them.

    BeFree also does separate 1099s for each merchant.

    That was in my first post. They're all independent, not joined at the hip.

    Just as Trust said: "merchants are going to need the W9 if you make over $600 with them, sometimes they ask upfront for them." In your case it seems that this one merchant asked W9 upfront.
