Exclamation ebay asking for SSN

I tried to list my first item, ebay asked me for phone verification.. after I verified the phone number, an other page came up asking for last 4 digits of social security number

is there anything I can do?

Is this a business or personal account? I believe for a biz account they have been asking for it in the beginning

actually I was going to do the same thing but then I thought about switching to individual. I will try to type in random numbers and hope nothing goes south..

If I want to get higher limits i will need a business account

Until managed payments started rolling out a year ago I'd never been asked by eBay for my SSN and I've converted 3 accounts to eBay business accounts. I guess it probably has something to do with them rolling out their own payment system.

Paypal would always ask for your SSN when you upgraded your account but not eBay. eBay wouldn't even ask for your EIN when you converted.. just your business name and address.
