Default Paypal requires ssn when upgrading to business now?

hi there
I was just trying to upgrade to business account on a newly created paypal account. normally it would allow me to enter the EIN or SSN later. but this time it REQUIRES EIN if i choose LLC and if I choose Sole proprietorship or partnership, it would REQUIRE me to put the last four digit of SSN, otherwise I can not proceed, im stucked here because I cant go back to personal account either, please advice, thanks!

no, on the first page it asks for EIN and EIN is optional if I choose sole proprietor or partnership otherwise it is mandatory. if i omit the EIN there will be another page pops out asking for last 4 digit of SSN to proceed. So they REQUIRE either EIN or SSN to proceed.

You can't enter any 4 digits on SSN#.

its best to wait until paypal requests tax reporting information before upgrading to business… otherwise, upgrade to premier if you desire the added benefits.

have an EIN handy at least 2 weeks prior to allow enough time for the IRS database records to update

you can do what I have already suggested

to upgrade to premier- google "upgrade to premier" and click on the first link

does not work with all search engines so best to use google.

most notably, it allows you sell BIN items only to customers who can pay right then

Say what pr0wake?

Are you referring to off eBay transactions on other platforms? Because I have a personal account on my eBay Stealth account and I can require immediate payment with BIN.

I've seen this too, got asked for tax information and took a few days to enter it and when I tried the account was limited already and can't upgrade to business since it's limited and can't enter EIN unless I upgrade. Emailed them and they need SSN to upgrade, tried creating a new business account and also need 4 digit SSN like you say. I'll try chosing LLC instead and see of that let's me enter EIN

its likely a premier. theres no distinguishable difference in appearance

test it by following my google tip and see if that link gives you the option for premier

Yes, it went to a PP page and let me upgrade (it was a personal previously).

Any rhyme or reason to this?

So, any updates on this?

Just started making a PP account, decided to go for Business and got to this page. Should I just start over with a different email address and bogus name?
