Why you need a business account? You can use regular one with a business name just the same.

You just replace your stealth name with your business name in the shipping address section, if you only have a 1 word business name just put inc. or llc as your last name or just make up any business name with 2 words to use as first and last name but keep your original stealth name in the billing address the same.

My account on stealth name , I bought it from real person with SSN and everything.
During that days I try to change the paypal account to business , once I do that the system still ask me to add SSN.
How to deal with that issue?
If there have SSN and I have already add the EIN , it will be problem with IRS?

I recommend converting to business RIGHT when it asks for EIN/SSN email, or doing it right before the threshold hits. Otherwise, it will ask you for FULL SSN or open a new business paypal. Some accounts i have converted after the fact, which just forces me to add a new bank and card etc., but it lets you instantly withdraw the first $3k or so, then after its a 21 day hold

If you upgrade before it limits you, then you add the last 4 of your SSN and just convert to business. 21 day hold is still in tact, but funds are released 3 days after confirmed delivery.

By the way, I just add a random 4 # for SSN and haven't had a problem really yet.

Use the last 4 of the EIN number instead of the last of the SS.

Adding only the last four digit of EIN/SS # can verify your paypal acc. ? If the account is stealth, it will not match w/ your SS number, right ? Sorry little confused here. Recently bought an account here still have not add bank account yet. Can anyone advise me how to go about it? Your input will be highly appreciated. Thanks
