As the one, the only, the Snoop Dogg once said, we’ve all got “My mind on my money, my money on my mind.” That’s why this week’s FAQs is all about those dolla, dolla bills.
Q: When DO I get paid – and HOW?
A: Payments are issued via PayPal on the 15th of every month, when your locked-down commissions total is $50 or greater. Commission totals of $50 or less will be rolled over to the next month’s total.
Not sure if you’ve added your PayPal info to your Manage Your Profile page? Go check. We’ll wait. 🙂
Q: What kind of tax stuff do I need to worry about?
A: US residents will need to submit a completed W-9 form if they earn more than $600 in one calendar year (January 1st through December 31st) with MagicLinks. All foreign residents must submit a completed W-8 form, regardless of the amount of money they make with MagicLinks. Please send your completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Where can I check my commission and click totals?
A: The Performance Reports page in your account has all the info you could need – and then some! We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to make the Reports easier to read and more detailed, so you can see clicks and commissions reflecting as soon as possible.
Plus, the Performance Reports page also has a World Map tab, so you can see where your subscribers are clicking from, a Links tab so you can track which links got the most clicks and commissions, and both Merchant and Products tabs that show sales, commission percentages, and commissions.
