Default PayPal asking for Social Security Number With New Business Accounts

I just made a new business account on 2/26/2014 and PayPal asked me for a Social Security number to match the info and name I put on the account. Which I can't cause I use stealth info. When they started this?

Bear with me, please.

What was the specific request?

Do you have a screen shot? I ask because another user spoke in the similar terms. But acutally there were options.

Hopefully this may be the same for you.

All you have to do is click the PayPal button and go back to the home page. This should do it. Also, before you make a PayPal account, switch it to Classic PayPal rather than the new one because the new one will ask for what you provided a picture of or the last four of ssn.

Paypal can ask for your SSN and DOB at any time they want.

They require 2 out 3 to confirm your Paypal....Obviously you aren't going to go with the SSN......so which 2 do you think you will go with? think hard.

Welcome to the forums - in most cases...you cannot get out of the SSN request by simply downgrading...
