I'm signing up for an affiliate program (CJ Affiliate) and I'm at the Tax Information section. What's the difference between the following:

W-8BEN
For an individual who is not a tax resident in the US and is the beneficial owner of income. Not relevant for entities.

W-8BEN-E
An entity that is not a resident within the US for tax purposes and is the beneficial owner of income.

I didn't know if because it's a website that could grow over time if it'd be an entity rather than an individual. Thanks for any help and sorry if this is in the wrong place!

I would classify you was an individual.
If you are acting as a legal company or organization you are an entity.

My Understanding :
an entity is often used for organizations.
You are an individual.

Hope This helps
