Oh Yes, We Pay You!
... just a tad more than a penny for your thoughts.
We ask for your email address, your legal name (so we know who to pay), your mailing address (so we know where to send tax documents), and for a copy of a valid State issued photo ID for 1099 reporting. Aside from that, we ask you to provide us with the specific skill utterance (one submission per utterance), the results of the tested utterance, and any feedback and/or suggestions.
Each monthly submission must be valid. We validate the submissions via our backend analytics tools that provide us with BETA Tester User iID, contact information, and valid Alexa Skill Console validation via Amazon Accounts.
Upon each submission, we will provide you with a complete copy of what you submitted via email, which will provide you with a date and time stamp of your submission.
Pay periods run from the 1st of the month through the last day of the month and is based on the U.S. Calendar. Should payment fall on a U.S. Federal Holiday, payment will be made on the next business day.
If you do not provide a valid form of ID and a legal, proper Social Security Number, we will not be able to process commission payments. We will not follow up with you directly to obtain that information. It is the responsibility of our BETA Testers to provide our accounting department with the proper, legal tax information for your account.
