    All right. My stealth ebay account is going to near the 200/$20000 limit and PayPal will soon limit me until I provide an SSN or EIN number.

    Do any of you guys have experience in attaching an EIN number to a stealth Ebay account?

    Can PayPal check the name of the EIN you registered with (for example my stealth is named John and and the name I registered with is Mike. Can they see
    the registered name?)

    Just spend $100 to start a new corp and use a service that provides a corporate representative for shell corps (if you don't want to expose yourself), then submit the corp's EIN. Piece of cake.

    Can you guide us with more (noob and retard-friendly) information about the whole procedure? Step by step, using links, ofc. And NOT limited to "Only working for US". Looking for Euro-based EIN (when they want).

    And still now info if we provide a "random IEN" from other firm/corp (100% working, real, etc., but NOT under our name). Also if they want docs (and what kind of docs, any templates?).

    Thanks.

    you may not know this but paypal is owned by ebay so if you do it for paypal it should work for both. if not there will be an update soon.
