Learn how merchants can work with Feeds4.com and avoid any Nexus concerns.
Nexus In A Nutshell
I’m not going to spend a lot of time explaining what nexus is or how it affects publishers. There are already a lot of great articles from people much more versed on the topic.
In its simplest form, if you are publisher in a state that has a nexus law on the books, you may create a tax burden for any merchant you do business with if you meet the specific criteria laid out in the law and no matter how you feel about this issue, until all states have such laws or the federal government enacts legislation regarding online sales tax, these considerations will remain and these regulations must be dealt with.
Publishers Get The Boot
Currently, most merchants concerned with nexus rules simply remove publishers residing in affected state. Removing the publishers also removes the potential nexus and will put a merchant’s affiliate program in compliance. On the flip side, it will also remove a lot of great publishers, like Feeds4 for instance, as we reside in Washington and Washington is a nexus state.
Contact Us Via Your Affiliate Network To Learn More
Feeds4.com is not a traditional publisher. We align ourselves in the publisher tools vertical but we do offer a sub-affiliate network that generates commissions and this can muddy the waters as to: do we actually create a nexus for the merchant? Rather than arguing this point to anyone who will listen, we have good news for merchants. Feeds4.com developed internal processes that allows us to work with any merchant program and still remain fully-compliant with all nexus regulations.
We do not disclose how we do this on our website but if you want to learn more, please reach out to Feeds4.com through your affiliate network. Feeds4.com can share with you how we are able to reside in a nexus state, remain fully-compliant with all affiliate nexus laws, and continue to provide your affiliate program access to content distribution service for publishers.
