Starting today, prizes won in U.S. competitions on Zooppa.com will be awarded in U.S. dollars.
Here’s how it’ll work:
• When you win a prize in one of our U.S. competitions, we’ll notify you and ask you to mail us a few documents.
• First, we’ll need you to fill out either IRS form W-9 or W-8, and mail us a copy. You can use our Tax Questionnaire to determine which IRS form to fill out.
• Then, we’ll need you to print out and complete Zooppa’s Affidavit of Eligibility and mail that to us as well.
• Once we’ve received your IRS Document and your Affidavit of Eligibility, we’ll send you a check.
For those of you who have earned Zoop$ in past U.S. competitions, we’ll be awarding those prizes in U.S. dollars as well, even if you have fewer than 1000 Zoop$.
This applies to prizes won on Zooppa.com only. Prizes won on the Italian site (it.zooppa.com) or the Brazilian site (br.zooppa.com) will continue to be paid normally through the existing Zoop$ system.
You may have some questions regarding this change. We’ll be posting an FAQ here on the blog, so check back here for answers to your questions. If you have a question, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
