Starting in August 2018, Mediavine has partnered with Tipalti to offer more flexible payment options for our publishers. Depending on where you live, set up details can vary. If you are a U.S. Citizen residing in another country, the following instructions will help you get set up. 

1. Personal Information

If you are a US Citizen living abroad, you will enter your PHYSICAL international address here. Don't worry; no one is going to use this as a mailing address. This is purely for address verification purposes on the bank's end. 

2. Choose Where You Will Be Paid
You can choose to be paid in the country where you reside, or you can choose to be paid in another country. 

3. Add Your Payment Details

See the below chart for an explanation of minimum payouts and fees: 

4. Fill Out Your Tax Form

If you are a U.S. person (see definitions on the IRS site) living outside the U.S., you will still need to submit a W9. To do that you will select the "U.S. Person" tab to electronically submit the W-9 form.

NOTE 1: Street number is the house number, and Street is the name of the street. For example, if your address is 123 Main Street, 123 would be the street number and Main Street would be the street. (We are aware of a bug that puts the street number after the street name if you edit your W9. Don’t worry — your information IS stored correctly.) 

For U.S. citizens living outside the U.S. you will enter your INTERNATIONAL ADDRESS on the W9. You'll need to leave the country blank so that it will save. 

Don't worry! These forms will not be mailed. They will be sent to you electronically, so as long as your name, EIN or TIN, and address are correct, the form will save and you'll be marked as "payable" in our system. 

5. Click Next

You’re done! Thanks so much for setting up your payment information.
