Hi, I am a 14 year old game developer and am wondering if I would be able to still upload a game to Kongregate. It would be a nice bonus to still be able to get paid through paypal, though I read over the whole rule’s and everything but it looks like I need to do some form of tax stuff. So all I’m wondering is if there is a way to get paid in Canada as a 14 year old on Kongregate.
I hope this is in the right forum.
Yeah, I uploaded my first game when I was.. 11? Just get your parent to link a student account to their paypal account and you should be set. If you make more than 600$ you’ll have to fill out a W-9, nothing complicated.

I don’t trust my parents enough for that :P
I’m interested on this since I’m under 18 too. Is there any problem holding the money for years?

No, I’m not. I trust them to do lots of things but there’s been multiple times where they don’t return money that they took from me.
@SumGato Lying is easy on the internet.

The difference is that since your paypal account isn’t legal, theorically, Paypal is allowed to freeze it, as well as all the money on it, until you are 18. But in practice, it usually work.
Anyway, in general, making games when under 18 doesn’t represent any problem. I’ve done that for years now (and just turned 18), sold games, got contracts, etc… But yes, just get paid by check maybe? Or parent paypal. ;)
