Use an EIN

Are you actually based in the USA?

They have been requiring a Tax ID for years, on USA accounts.

You can only get one by being born in USA

An EIN is an Employer Identification Number. They can be used on USA accounts as a Tax ID, in place of an SSN.

They require this information from you because they are required to report your income to the IRS once you pass the 200/$20000 threshold.

So, if you do decide to apply for an EIN, just make sure you are prepared to file taxes for the EIN next year.

I only sell small items, like in 3 months I've only made about 2500 dollars, is there anything I can do?

If you are in the USA and have an SSN then you can easily get an EIN and add that to PayPal

Size of item doesn't matter.....File for an EIN, Apply it to PayPal.

Excellent point. Is it even possible to get an EIN without having an SSN to apply with?

I am pretty sure you can get an EIN from outside the USA without a SSN, but you are limited to just the 1.

May have to wait for others to confirm that though!

Lol, you act like you know me. You must've seen some of my past posts, they never really asked for it, I just open my information and saw SSN number and it was blank , lmfao. So I overreacted as usual. I really need a chill pill most of the times because I always freakout, lmfao omg. And yes, I'm in the US and I deal with very popular high quality, products. Of course, they're truly authentic and I offer a 30 day return, money back guarantee. ✌️

I'm mainly freaking because they put a hold on my already released money because a lady couldn't understand what I was saying and opened a Paypal case on me. And I could've won, because I do have the emails of me telling her exactly what it was and she claimed the item wasn't as described. So because my return address wasn't "mine" I lost. That will never happen again, I went ahead and sent her the other one, on me. I had proof, but it was really Stressing Me Out. Live and learn, I just want Paypal to take my hold off.
Does anyone know once the case is closed how long they hold it for, because she did close it and I explained my part.
