Why did I not get a payment for a Reward that I was eligible for?

If you were eligible for a reward during a particular month the following reasons could have held back the payment:

  • Your total cumulative payments might be less than $100.
  • The monthly audit might have rejected your reward on certain eligibility grounds
  • Your reward might be in processing phase
  • You might not have sent the required necessary documents in the requisite time period.

What is the payment release process?

  • Statistics for the month will be audited by 15th day of next month.
  • Payment for any month will be processed and released by 20th of the next month.
  • The artist will be paid on monthly basis, provided their cumulative earnings is >=$100 in any particular month. Cumulative earning less than $100 will not be processed for payment and remain on hold till it reaches $100.
  • Monthly Reward will be processed only when the Artist has fully completed all formalities including sending a signed written agreement along with a valid identity proof
  • For the purpose of calculation of card sends for Rewards or Payment, the calendar month shall start from the 1st day every month and end on the last day of the month.
  • Payments are exclusive and non-transferable.

How and when will I get paid?

  • Users will be requested to furnish correct information on their “Profile” section and send necessary documents for the purpose of clearing payment. If documents are not received within 30 days of request, payment will not be processed and amount will be forfeited.
  • Payment will be audited on a monthly basis and then only payment released.

What are my tax requirements?

For U.S. residents: Those who earn $600 or more will have to fill out a W-9 form. 123Greetings will provide the 1099 form for the IRS at the end of the year. 123Greetings does not withhold taxes. You are solely responsible for making quarterly tax payments as necessary.

For non-U.S. residents: If you are international, non-US-based you are solely responsible for reporting your earnings to the appropriate tax agencies. Artists will be required to furnish all relevant information on their “Profile” section prior to payment. Else, payment will not be processed and amount forfeited.

What is the basis of calculation of card sends for the purpose of Reward Plan?

The card sends will be calculated on unique card sends by US and Canada residents only on eligible cards, during the month.

Why do my statistics reflect lesser number of cards than uploaded?
