Do I need an EIN to use Joist Payments?

You do not need to have an EIN or be a registered business to use Joist Payments. When you sign up for payments, you will be asked to fill out a form, which will by default assume you are a registered business -- but you can change this by clicking the "click here" link in the Account Details section near the top of the screen.

This will give you the option to select what best describes you. Click on Business and change it to Individual. The form below will update and you can fill it out as required.

Choosing the correct option here will help ensure you do not run into any account-related issues with payments processing through Joist. If you think you have filled out your form incorrectly, by all means just let us know at 1 800 976 9261 or email hello@joist.com and we will help you make the necessary changes.
