    I've got a verified US business account with G aypal, but here's my question.

    I want to unlock the VCC functionality, but I'm unsure as to whether or not the EIN will work for this?

    Maybe someone has gone through this experience, and can shed some light on the issue.

    Thanks!

    I haven't done it myself but there's no reason why it shouldn't work. Why not just give it a try and see what happens?

    I've got to get one first...LOL. Once I do, I'll try it and see. I'll report my findings here.

    EINs should work almost any place where they would require an SS#, but keep in mind for an EIN you must have a business. just get a DBA then with ur dba get an EIN (EINs are free and can get it online instantly)

    don't try to pass and ein as your ssn unless its a business account. they will find out immediately when they pull your credit report.

    Oh yea, I've got a business account. But my social is tied to another account, so, I need the EIN.
