Default Will Paypal know my SSN if i use TIN?

I got pp limited about 2 years ago for a stupid reason ... unusual transfer to bank account. I called them many times and explained but hopeless (all my real info even my real ssn on that account)...
Now I have another account about 5 months with my real info (except address, and not use ssn or tin yet) ... I know PP will ask me for ssn soon because my sale are going up... Im going to use my TIN, any advice? Will pp have my SSN if i give them my TIN or EIN ?

Just by giving TIN or EIN, I am sure they cannot get your SSN -

the problem is that the name on the Tax ID has to match the name on your existing account that you want to add it to. Thats the main problem people are having.

It may be close and they accept i but a month later then end up asking for you to confirm everything.

Yep, the name on that account is my real name. Only 1 thing ⊗⊗⊗⊗ on the account is address. I just worry about PP will have my ssn if i give them my TIN or EIN.
Im also moving next month so address wont be a problem anymore.

They can not get your SSN by just having your EIN.

Do you mean you are not using name variations?

Paypal asked me to reconfirm and only thing different was address... Everything else matched so this is how I came to conclusion. Mind you they accepted first, but then they couldn't confirm it about 6 months later

I re-entered same info and its been 3 more months.... I am curious also...
