Default PayPal asking for EIN, Question.

Paypal account is giving me a notification, on my Stealth account.
Below is a photo of it.

I have question on what to do, and how to approach this.
1. I can't give SS number.
2. I have an original EIN number that I used on my first TRUE ebay account. (BUT that number is linked to my original banded ebay account)
3. Which option would I choose?

Do you need to match your DBA name to your EIN some how?
That would be my question. How do you set up your Stealth EIN name?

Shoot, I can't upload a photo anymore.
But, it basically says...

Provide your tax reporting information.
We'll use your tax ID number to send tax form 1099-k to you and the IRS if the payments you receive in a calendar year go ab ove 20,000/200.
Please provide your tax ID number today.

What tax ID number do you use when you pay your taxes?
1. I use my SS#.
2. I use my EIN (if you select this, PayPal will ask you to upgrade to a Business Account)
3. I use my Individual Tax ID number.


So basically my question is, what choice do I pick?
And how do I open the tax id?
Where do I put my Stealth name into the equation?

Basically your only choice is to use an EIN. You'll need to start a company and get an EIN from the IRS. Once you do that you can upgrade your Paypal account to a business account and enter that EIN. You'll have a chance to enter your business name into Paypal and you need to put down the exact business name that you gave the IRS when you applied for an EIN.

I have my original EIN from my original (banned) Ebay account.

Naturally I don't think I can use that EIN correct?

No you shouldn't reuse anything that can be tied back to you, like an EIN. You'll need an all new one.
