Default How to do etsy stealth with the new SSN update?

Is there anyway to make an etsy shop without putting an ssn? They recently made it impossible to do it just with paypal. I checked the etsy forums and apparently they don't even accept EIN? Had an old etsy account a year ago, gave them by ssn, the shop was later banned. Pretty sure it would be stupid to use the same ssn. Any ideas?

They stopped letting people get away with just paypal AFAIK by enforcing people to send their ID/ssn/ein/proof of etc etc.

So basically, you either give them an ID/SSN/EIN or can't open an etsy account?

Yup! My friend signed up for a store recently and never opened an etsy before. The sign up page asked for your SSN. He gave his EIN instead and two days later an automated email came in asking for his ID and proof of his address. I'm thinking that even if I made an EIN for etsy, they could link it back to my old account that was banned.

It's not that at all MM78. They now want everyone in the US to use Direct Checkout, which is a merchant account, and therefore requires verification of personal info. You cannot do stealth with a merchant account; that would be a crime in any case.

NO, new signups can no longer use standalone paypal to get payment. And they require all newly openned shops to use direct check-out => unless you use family's SNN, etsy stealth is IMPOSSIBLE. They just ask me to verify my identity. EIN does not work anymore.

If we used family's social, would they be able to link a previous address from them to a previous address you used on your now banned account?

How much are they looking into when they verify your identity?

I have a prepaid card with a routing number and account number in my sisters name who has decided to go into business with me. The address on the prepaid card matches the billing address on etsy.

I want to sign up for direct checkout with her name, social, birthday, routing and account number. My worry is that when they go to check everything, old addresses will pull up and it will be flagged with an address I used on etsy before.

Do they even check that kind of thing? Or JUST CHECK to make sure your info on the bank/routing and account number... match the information you provided when signing up for direct checkout?

you cant have a payoneer account if you live in america.. and what are you trying to achieve with that account? All you need to do is buy a 8$ VBA to pass the bank portion for etsy.

I'm so sorry to ask a possible repeated question, but where do I find....

1. A $8 VBA for US? Will Et.sy get my personal info from the VBA? Seems you need your personal info including SSN for VBAs?

2. I'm just trying to get back on et.sy for the sales and traffic, have my own site, but traffic is nothing compared to et.sy. Then start to slow redirect my traffic to my site. Sell kids shirts/tutus....so it's handmade.

You do not know HOW much your help and sharing of info is to me. Many, many thanks!!

Hi there, I see that you are an experienced member here and I would value any input you have! You said that you have made stealth accts on et.sy, but have you recently on et.sy after the change in Dec 15? If so, is there some secret, I don't know? I'm following the "bible" to the T but my name on the et.sy acct can not be different than the VBA, because it WILL get kicked back right away! Already tried this route. Didn't work. Also tried a new EIN number and after a few days they asked for my DL and proof of address by public utility bill! I tried sending them a proofed "for et.sy lonely" over the license, they asked me to remove it and resend it.

I am open to any suggestions.
