It is Your responsibility to provide DivyWeb with the tax and payment information required to issue a Commission Fee to You. If DivyWeb does not receive the necessary tax or payment information within 90 days of a Commission Fee being earned, DivyWeb will consider that Commission Fee to be forfeited by the Affiliate, and no payment will be issued.
Each Affiliate is required to submit a W8/W9 tax form before DivyWeb will issue any Commission Fees. You are responsible for the payment of all taxes related to the commissions you earn under this Agreement. In compliance with tax laws, DivyWeb will issue a Form 1099 to Affiliates whose earnings meet or exceed the applicable amount warranting the Form 1099.
You will be required to provide us with proper address, tax forms (including W8/W9 or other tax forms) or information within two (2) days of any request issued by DivyWeb to issue a Form 1099.
Any address changes must be made in the Affiliate profile in the Affiliate Console at least 15 business days prior to the end of the calendar month in order for Commissions for that month to be sent to the revised address.

You may log into your Affiliate Console to review Your click through and potential Qualified Purchases statistics on a daily basis.

As such, Commission Fees may not be issued on all Referred Customers that appear in the Affiliate Console.
