Hello so I currently do not own any businesses and I'm not very sure on the whole process... But is giving the SSN to Paypal a safe thing to do? I just want to use Paypal as a personal account for now (just to buy things online, that's about it for now) so is it safe in that sense? I've heard about EIN but to get an EIN don't you have to be a business owner? Please help me out here, so is giving the SSN a wise choice in my scenario? Advice?
