Default Personal account 24% hold, EIN?

I have had a stealth personal account working very well for years and PP recently hit me with a funds hold and a message about the 24% hold needing my SSN. I don't have a SSN for this account that will match the name. I do have a EIN for the tax purposes. It doesn't seem like they will take the EIN. I tried to upgrade to a business account but they also wanted a SSN. Any ideas on how to fix this mess?

Even with a biz acc when they ask for SSN, I still use EIN.

Update account for business and use EIN
But I don’t know if sales will be profitable if you pay 24% now

Thank you all for the tips.

I tried to update to a business account. It wanted a SS to make the update. I entered the EIN and it wouldn’t accept.

I did however try to add my tax ID on the personal account and when I put EIN in the SS box it gave me an error. A link appeared asking you want to use EIN instead. Directions were to send a W9 form to a PP email address. That sounded simple

My question now is the EIN is in my real name. The PP isn’t. Do I use my real name on the w9 form and send to PP? I don’t think it would be smart to use the stealth name on a w9?

Does not seem I can use EIN in the SS box on the site as I had hoped.
