    Just wondering what the majority use.

    I am tempted to get a DBA and EIN just so I can reapply to networks if I get banned. Also, I am up tight about my info getting out there...

    Always use a EIN to apply to networks. Under no circumstances should you be giving anyone your social security number.

    Do they ask for your EIN/SSN after you get approved? I just applied to several yesterday and none of them asked for it in the application, but I am waiting till monday to call them all.

    I always use the EIN/ Tax id. I never use my SS# unless its the only option for something in real life never on the internet. only bad thing is if you make a lot of money and your in the US you have to pay taxes on all that crap or chance getting busted.

    So Do they ask for your EIN/SSN after you get approved? I just applied to several on Friday and got accepted to a few today, and none have asked for EIN/SSN yet. Do only certain networks ask for it?

    It depends on the networks that you sign up with.

    Never give out 'your' SSN (it's a government assigned number, it's THEIR number). Ideally, sign up for every program using your DBA/Corp)Psuedonym) using an offshore address. Where you must put down a real number/US address, skip that program, or put somebody else's down (a passive buddy who will eat all taxes), while you control access to the account.
