Default Added EIn but wanting SSN or ITIN document

Confirm your U.S. taxpayer status

When I add my new ein

IRS has not issued the TIN that was entered to an individual or entity.

How new is your EIN? Gotta give it 60 days to show up on government website. Did you create an active LLC or corporation with it? Only after business is registered with state and federal government will it show "active" when searched. Since everyone can look up any business easily, I'm certain PayPal does too.

EINs take quite a bit of time to be registered in the system. Regardless paypal may require your SSN anyways. You may run into trouble with paypal requesting more info, because the the EIN provided will not match up due to the new registration of it.

PayPal doesn't just use SSN for tax reporting purposes.
They want it to confirm the account name/identity on the account.

Nearly a month or two ago I went online to apply for an ein. I received it while on that site at that time. I tried to enter it in PayPal on same day I received it and it showed that the ein was not issued to anyone. They did ask for my social then.
I done the ein because of tax info request from PayPal. I couldn't add my social. 2 weeks later I went back into PayPal and upgraded to business. It accepted my ein at that time. Instead of asking for full social it was only requesting last 4 of social. I entered last 4 of ein and I stopped receiving tax document request. Fast forward to 2 weeks ago. I received my invite to managed payments. Now I no longer PayPal except for shipping labels and purchasing.

They asked for your date of birth along with the last four of your SSN right? What date did you use?

I recently registered some LLCs - after setting up my banking I started the Business PP account creation process. Using a clean Residential Proxy, I encountered this:

Again, this is for a business account, not a personal account.

Did you complete your sign up. I had that same thing pop up when upgrading to business.
Since I had a previous banned PayPal account I could not use my social. However I did put the last 4 of ein where it asked for last 4 of social. I used real details but changed the day of month for birthdate. I believe had to also add business name .
It has to match name given to irs when applying for ein

When I got the tax notice from PayPal I seen that I would have to add the entire social security number. I couldnt do that due to previously banned account.
I obtained ein and when I was updating to business account I no longer was asked for the entire social security number only last 4 of social

My guess is if you have an ein you had to use your social to get the ein
Personal accounts on paypal wouldn't have ein but social security number would have to be used if requested. I by passed that by upgrading to business

Hope this makes some kind of sense
