    If you are upgrading a personal account to a business account OR when you are signing up for an Individual/Sole P BUSINESS account I always get a page that comes up that asks for my SSN/DOB and says it's required by the PATRIOT ACT.

    I somehow got around this on one of my new accounts but can't figure out a way to get around it on any of my new accounts. I've read on other forums that people advise to just "leave it blank" And yes, of course you would leave it blank. But you can't submit a blank page and when I try to click "contact" or "Help" at the bottom of the page it WILL take me to the Paypal summary page but it won't let me click much from there...

    Also, everytime I try logging back in or if I click away from the page and then type in paypal.com it STILL brings up the same page.

    Does anyone know how to get around this?

    My problem is I can't use a fake SSN. I am going to eventually upgrade these accounts to a business filed through a LLC- So I can't have any faulty info attached to the account.

    And it IS possible. As I pointed out, I somehow managed to do it earlier today. I just can't figure out how to do it.

    No way around it...I have heard of people "getting lucky" and the page going away, but this has never happened in all of the accounts I have created.

    That's the biggest downside of all US Paypal accounts. At this point you guys need to either let the accounts "cool down" or upgrade your accounts to business ones. You need to attach EIN, which is going to be most likely under LLC.

    Your LLC name has to match your Paypal Business Name, which you will create. When you apply for EIN (LLC) you register your real address that you have access to, and you can include your Paypal's business address as your secondary address on EIN application. Paypal will only check if the EIN # and Business Name match, the rest is irrelevant.

    If your PP was limited with 3 tax notices, then you will have to call Paypal and ask them to manually attach EIN (LLC); some reps may not even know how to do it or refuse but you gotta be persistent. Now, you will have EIN attached to your Paypal but it will still ask you for SSN and to that I know few solutions, which had worked for some and hadnt for the others:

    1) You will enter SSN as last 4 digits of your EIN
    2) You would need to find someone (or yourself) who can generate a random SSN, which will be based on DOB and location of the person registered on the account (regardless if it is fictional). And yes SSN number algorithms are known and this info can be found on the internet.

    Now, steps with SSN may be considered as felony by some and not by others, so do it at your own risk but those are the only solutions that are working currently.

    Those issues never arise on Canadian accounts.

    Home Page:
    You can get your tax ID/EIN instantly online from the feds right now, even if your business isn't operational yet, and then just use the same EIN when you get your business up and running later. So then you could fill it out now. Just an option.
