Help me plzzz
i'm an international student, and i'm selling on ebay and somedays ago Paypal sent me an email to ask me for provide TAX id. But i don't have it also social number too. Any solution for my account ? :(

This is email from them
Second reminder: Avoid limitations to your PayPal account. Please provide
your Tax ID number

Dear abcd,

We still have not received your Tax ID number. Please provide your Tax ID
number to comply with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules. Your Tax ID
number is one of these:

- Your Social Security Number (SSN)
- Your Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN)
- Your Employer Identification Number (EIN)

We are required to obtain Tax ID numbers from all online sellers who
receive payments for goods or services through PayPal. If you do not
provide us with your Tax ID number, your account access will be limited,
and you will be unable to request or receive money.

After you provide your Tax ID number, your account will be fully
functional. Here's how to submit your Tax ID number:

1. Log in to your PayPal account.

2. A message will appear asking you to update your information.

3. Click Provide Now and follow the instructions.

If you have multiple PayPal accounts, repeat these steps for each account.

We'll use your Tax ID number to send tax Form 1099-K to you and the IRS
when the payments you receive meet the 1099-K reporting thresholds for the
calendar year. For more information, please see our FAQs on the IRS
reporting requirements:

We appreciate your help in complying with these IRS rules.

Default Re: Paypal - need to provide Tax ID

If youre an international student within the US operating your account you obviously do not have the SSN. And I don't know if you can get an EIN either since youre not a US citizen. Not sure how that works. Do you have a green card?
Don't know that theres an easy solution for your situation to be honest.
Might have to concentrate on the future - and in this future make sure to spread your sales across multiple accounts so you don't have to deal with this sort of situation again.

Heres what you can do... Open a few new PP and EB accounts and start from fresh til next year. Just like slokar said, thats why you need multiple accounts; to spread sales so you less likely to hit the traunch.

You can get a EIN number as a foreign student, etc.... I am surprised you dont have one already if you have any job at all.
