Is Zazzle a scam?
Posted: Wednesday, March 15, 2017 8:10:43 AM
I'm starting to wonder if Zazzle has scammed me because I don't receive my money and they don't answer my emails anymore...

After having saved up a pretty good amount of earnings here I requested my first payment back in january but didn't receive anything in february and there is nothing in my payments history either. There still isn't and I still haven't received anything... Anyway, I emailed zazzle about this and received a reply where they told me to wait 6-10 days for it to show up on paypal. I thought this was weird considering I had NOTHING in payments history but ok, I waited 11 days and nothing. I emailed them again and they responded after 5 days saying I need to fill out a w8ben form before I could get my payment. Thing is though I have already done this. I did it way back in december of 2016. After I told them that they have stopped replying and it has now been almost 2 weeks since I heard anything from them and it has been a month since I was supposed to get my money!

What do I do? I want, and need, my money!

It usually takes several weeks for your W8-BEN form to be approved or disapproved, and you won't be paid until it is filled out correctly and approved. Did yours get approved?

Well considering I sent it in december we're way past weeks here... I sent it one time first and they told me I had missed something so I fixed it and sent another one. I never heared back from them about that last one but the red text on my page that said I needed to update it disappeared a couple of weeks later and everything looks fine now, so I assume they approved it.

NOT A SCAM

Been getting paid for over 8 years now.

Make sure you provide your SSN.

Hi Caroline. I'm sorry to hear about the delay of payments. I will forward your info to our team here that handles W8BEN forms and someone will review it and get in contact with you via e-mail

If you didn't get a response to your latest W8BEN, assume it wasn't received and wasn't accepted. When I didn't get a response, I sent another one, and they hadn't received the one I'd sent prior to that. So send another copy to them. Once it's sorted, your payment will go through.

A while back, I went three months without being paid, and the people at Zazzle worked hard at trying to help find out why. When it comes to certain paperwork for taxes, they're not allowed to see as much of our information as the IRS can.

After all that time, it turned out that the error was on the side of the IRS, and they hadn't said a thing to me. When I contacted them, it took about a minute for them to correct the mistake.


All that stress because they confused the SS numbers. Geeez!


Good luck.
