Let’s Get Started!
WHAT YOU MUST HAVE IN ORDER TO APPLY FOR A STUDIO:
Step 1 – All new studios (US and International) are required to submit two (2) forms of identification for the studio owner listed on the application before access to the account is enabled and billing is activated. Please use all true and legal information, do not use nicknames or stage names.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL UNITED STATES PRODUCERS
- A valid photo ID (US photo ID, passport, driver's license, state issued photo ID, military ID, or government issued ID). Your Photo ID must match the name on the account application.
- In addition, ALL producers from the United States and US Territories MUST complete a W9 form for tax purposes.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL INTERNATIONAL PRODUCERS
- A valid photo ID (passport, driver’s license or military ID). Your Photo ID must match the name and address on the account application.
- A current utility bill (power, water, cable or anything else that shows your real name and matches the payout address you listed on your application).
Please Note: Upon review of all new studio applications we may ask for new documents to be submitted to update our records and/or verify your account (even if you are an existing and active producer). However, if you currently have an active studio opened after January 01, 2012 and you are using the same account information to set-up a new studio, you do not need to submit your photo ID or other documents again as long as we can verify that we have your documents on file.
Step 2 – In addition to the documents that must be submitted, you must add and make active the required unique files for each different store. Each store has its own requirements which must be met before credit card processing will be activated. Go here for the: Requirements For Activation
