Maybe expand a bit more to us about what is happening:

more info really needed to give the advice.

Age of account, amount of transactions. More info will help to get replies.

Default Re: Paypal Asks for SSN

after logging in to paypal it directs me to a screen asking me for the last 4 of my social security number. to get around it i go to the url bar and retype paypal.com. then it brings me to my paypal home page. the account is around a month old and i have has 10-15 transactions total. i applied my EIN during registration. one day i could not get around that page at all. i got nervous but the next day it worked again.

It sounds to me like PayPal may be suspicious of that account, for whatever reason.

The only option you might have is to upgrade to a Business Account and get an EIN at this point.

it is already a business account and i have already provided my EIN. i just want to clarify that my llc was formed less than a month ago. do you think that it still is not in the system therefore paypal has not been able to verify it yet?

If they restricted you over that until you provide SSN, youre probably not going to have a work around. Account may be toast.

If they are insisting for a SSN, at this point the account might be toast.

wow this seems to happen a lot with business accounts. I tend to stick to personal accounts for this reason.

account is gone. that is why you only convert to a business and add the EIN when you get near/pace for the 200/20k limit.

lesson learned. store the account details for fund removal in 180 days.

His account is not gone?? Lmao, no one else faces this? I figured it was very common.

I have had this with mostly premier accounts and business accounts.

The page first starts off asking for what kind of business you are.. if that rings a bell

They do this to most of my accounts. I have had it very recently happen to an account that already had the SSN and such, but they never checked against the national database so they kept asking.

This happens to most or all of my accounts, I have had accounts run perfect until the end but never did they think the account was a stealth account or limit me in any ways..

No one else knows this page? Me and it are quite fond of each other

It typically just redirected me to that page randomly (mainly at login). I could just go back to the home site and retry sending money. If you have troubles, attempt to use the mobile site/app BUT WITH CAUTION! Just in the sense of linking accounts.

I just had an issue with one account I just made .. wouldn't let me go to the homepage, just kept looping me back to that page. The day after I post this, it gets patched? Whatever, I am sure there are still ways around it

Have you tried it using the mobile app on a "dump" phone (or at least one that will never link)?

Obviously not.. I have said this before (even in this thread). But the OP has money in his PP account, I know it is worth me using the app to get $1k out..

I see people upgrade their accounts to Business to avoid SSN check.

Why suggest the danger of the app even though you qualifed it with dump phone.

Others will disregard your whole message.

You should know that the app is a risk.
