Default Paypal requires SSN/ITIN, whats next?

Hello! I bought an account here a month ago and do dropshipping on eBay. Paypal recently required SSN/ITIN number in order to proceed to use the account. I am a European citizen and do not have SSN/ITIN or any company or EIN number in the US. Is there any way around it and what exactly should I do next?

Your help will be highly appreciated!

I ready read most of the threads on the subject but since I am not a US citizen I don't really get what should I do now. If there is no way to proceed with this account I hope that I will have enough time to withdraw the money before they freeze it.

Looking forward to your replies

Then you need to put your flag up as bulgaria so we know what we are dealing with.

I'll ask James and see if he can post in here for you

If you set your flag to your actual location is helps us help you

You need to apply for a ITIN. You can do that from Europe.

You're going to have a very hard time with this. If you're able to upgrade the account at all.

It seems like Paypal has been getting sick of non-USA users receiving payments on USA accounts. Applying for and giving Paypal an ITIN is the only option but there's a very high chance they'll ask for more info (ID, proof of address/SSN) if and when you do give an ITIN.
