I have a store on and to get paid my commissions for my work I need to fill out a W-8Ben form and I have no idea what most of the stuff on it even means, so I'm hoping someone on Geekzone can help me out with this. Thanks.

W8ben is just a declaration that you are not a US person for tax purposes.

If you do not declare on the W8BEN the US govt may withhold some of your funds.
