I am worried because most of the Affiliates I am Finding ask for my Social Security number to register!

If an affiliate is asking for your SSN number to just sign up - find another affiliate.

The only time this is required is when you start earning commissions and not before..

That is pretty common actually. They will need to send you a W-9 for tax purposes.

Most merchants won't ask you for tax information/SSN until you actually start earning and then they need it. The earnings have to be reported.

If I try to signup and can't unless I give it out, I will move on. Good luck. Cheers.

Thank You for your answer. I would have no problem giving it if I made anything, but just to register worries me. That is why I did not register at some.

Then, I would assume since they are well-known, go ahead. Let's see what other have to say. I knew I was solid going with Amazon and they didn't ask...LOL!
