CHICAGO LINE’S CONCIERGE PORTAL

FAQ

  • HOW DO I RECEIVE MY LINK?

    Upon signing up for our program you will receive an initial email about how to finish your registration. This email will ask for your preferred method of payment for your commission. You can choose Zelle, direct deposit or check. If you don’t already have a W-9 on file, you must complete Form W-9 and send it back to us.

    Once we receive that information we are able to finish creating your personalized link which will be sent to you via email.
