How to add your Tax documents? (for US-based affiliates)

If you're based in the United States, you will be required to provide an electronic Tax document in accordance with US tax laws. This is a requirement of the Impact Platform that hosts the Elfsight Affiliate Program. This guide can help you add all tax documents and withdraw funds easily.

Elfsight cannot make payments until your tax form is submitted and approved by the Impact platform that hosts our Affiliate Program. When your tax form is received and verified, we will send you a confirmation email.

To add Tax documents:

  1. Go to your Elfsight affiliate dashboard;
  2. Click Balance in the upper right corner of the navigation menu and select Tax Documents from the dropdown list:
  3. Select the required tax form according to your tax status:

    Form W-9 ⟶ for any partner based in the US;

    Form W-8 BEN ⟶ for individual foreign partners (i.e., not associated with or representing a company, organization, or entity) that are working with any brand based in the US.

    Form W-8 BEN-E ⟶ for foreign companies, organizations, or entities working as a partner with any brand based in the United States.

  4. Select Continue and use the in-app DocuSign secured frame to fill out the tax form fields highlighted in red.
  5. Please pay attention to the following details when filling out your tax form:

    • Your bank account name (in the Bank Settings) must exactly match the name you submit on your tax form, otherwise, we can’t process your payments via EFT.
    • The name and mailing address should be up-to-date on your submitted tax form, as this is where our service will mail Form 1099-MISC at the end of the tax year.
    • The finance checking protocol takes into account: lower and upper-case lettering, full stops/periods/commas/question and exclamation marks, special characters, spacing.
  6. Please make sure all details you’ve entered are correct and click Finish to submit your Tax form.
