  • Christine

    Does anyone have any firsthand experience with this? They’re asking for SSN…

    • Monica

      I agree with Christine…They are asking for your SS#. Amber, is this safe?

    • Erin

      I signed up when FabFrugal posted this link back in May. It is legit. You are essentially filling out a job application when you submit your information. The thing to keep in mind, is that as a contract worker, you’re self-employed and will have to file taxes if you make over a certain amount of money. That’s the reason for asking for that information. They need to have it on file so they can file the proper paperwork when they pay you.

      • Trista

        When you complete the assignment how quickly do you get paid, I signed with the company and decided to do direct deposit, I wanted to talk with someone who has done this program.

  • Hello!
    We do ask for your SSN because you are becoming an independent contractor with us. If you earn over a certian amount of money we need it for tax purposes. It is completely safe and will never be shared. If you are hesitant about giving out your SSN or have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to and we will be happy to help.
    Thank you!

  • Hi Jordan,
    They are two seperate portals, so you would have to apply for both to have access to both of them. They function very similarly and the applications are also similar so if you are a member of one, the other should be easy.
    Thank you!

  • I just got started with Marketforce and I love it! It is such a great way for me to contribute to my family’s income while I’m a stay-at-home mom. Hoenstly, I just enjoy the excuse to get out and about too!
