4. Before you start publishing your book, You need to fill up your details like tax information and address where you will receive the checks. For that you need to click on Your accounts. Here you need to take an tax Interview. This is to enter your country identification and your US Tax ID. Normally its EIN. Once interview is done you need to call US toll free number for confirming your address after that you will get your EIN. For US folks this is not required as you will be having SSN, which is enough I guess.

This interview is for filling your W8-Ben which is requirement for non-us person.

Author name can be pen name as well, if you are publishing in certain Niche and its for particular society then you can give a pen name.
