Entrecard users will now find a link in their dashboard to the application which, when approved, will give a member the ability to cashout credits at the rate of $1 per 1000 Entrecard Credits.
This all seems straightforward enough. They do need a real life identity and PayPal email address in order to process the cashout requests. I started to fill out the application, but balked before I got to the end. They are asking for a tax ID / SS#. Note that this is an insecure form! That is my first concern.
My second concern is why they need this information at all. I make money from quite a few online sites, and unless I break the $600/year threshold, that information should not be needed at all. When income from one site rises above that (in the USA), then a W-9 form must be supplied to the payer/employer.
So, for now, I'm not signing up for cashout. You should NOT enter your SS# unless they fix this form, even if you are willing to provide it.
