    Hello all! I have been visiting the forum on and off for awhile and decided to become a member. I am a newbie and want to get started on the right track. When starting out as an affiliate do you need to get an EIN number
    and if so do you need to have a DBA (Doing Business As)? freinhm

    Hi freinhm,

    Welcome to 5 Star. Glad you decided to join and get active.
    Thanks for starting off with a great question!

    Nope you don't need a business identity. Most affiliate start with their personal name and socital security number. Down the road you may decide you want to INC or something, but I would not worry about that until after you start making enough that you need to explore tax and liability options.

    DISCLAIMER: I am not an attorney and don't know all the tax laws or the laws of your state. I just know that merchants don't require you to have a company established in order to join programs.
