So I want to become a contributor to Adobe Stock.  However, I am an American living in Germany.

Yes, I realize that I need to fill out a W-9. But with the W-9 that is provided I can not input my German address.  This is really annoying.

There are several Americans living abroad.  So how do I continue with filling everything so that I can sell imagery?

How do I input my address?

Looked at the links really quick.

Unfortunately those do not provide an answer.

Basically I need to input my German address into the W-9, which the online W-9 does not take into account that there are Americans living abroad.

I have no American address.....

Sheena....

So I went to the Customer Care site.  That redirected me back to the forums.

Went back to the Customer Care site and worked around to get to a live chat with Customer Care.

Explained to the person the situation.... explained that I asked in the Forum.

The person then tells me to go back to the forum to ask.  I shared the link, to this thread and he still tells me to go back to the forum.  It made me laugh a little.

I then asked why he would send me back in a circle...  He said his team does not handle this issue.  I asked which team does....he could not answer.

So who can I email and ask about this?  As there is no answer.  And I would assume there has to be.... as I can not be the only American living abroad that wants to contribute to Adoe stock who does not have an American address but still pays taxes.

Any specific person that I should email?

I think this will only take around in circles again.

Since I have work permit for Germany... and since it is recommended to do my German taxes first.  Maybe is easier to sign up as a German.  Then pay my German taxes and then worry about the American side.

As it seems.... there is no real answer or that no one wants to give me a direct answer.  So the best option is to work around the issue.  But sad that the W-9 online is for those living in the US.  It completely kills it for any Americans living abroad.... which in a global market is kind of bad.
