Does FIVERR provide W8-BENs to USA Buyers?

Hello!

I am looking to purchase a gig from a non-US based seller and was curious about how tax forms are handled through FIVERR.

The website only provides information pertaining to W-9s for sellers who are defined as “US Persons,” and it states that FIVERR collects these forms. How does FIVERR handle tax documentation for non-US Persons? I see there is a form titled a W8-BEN that pertains to non-US sellers for tax purposes.

Does FIVERR collect these documents? Are the non-US sellers responsible for producing them?

Please let me know!

Lloydsolutions,

Thank you so much for the additional reference, unfortunately it does not quite anwser our question regarding the appropriate forms. The main question has to do with which entity is responsible for providing the relevant tax forms when a US based entity is working with a non-us consultant for work, is it FIVERR or the Seller?
