Amazon (SSN)

    I tried signing up with Amazon to have it featured on my HubPage, BUT  they ask for your Social Security number So I'm wondering if that is safe to do. And if Amazon is a good one to have featured or if I'm okay with just Adsapace?

      They need your Social Security Number for tax purposes, just like an employer.

      And Amazon can be very helpful for product-related Hubs, though most of our users earn more with AdSense over all.

        With Adsense, I don't think they ask for your SSN, do they???. they haven't yet...

          If I remember correctly they ask for it (or your tax id #) once you hit your first payout.

    If you want someone to pay you, they need your SSN. And I doubt Amazon is going to do anything shady with it.

    I know, it scared me a little bit too. But Amazon needs it so they can pay you. It is a secure site.
