    Sorry if i not in right sub forum, i am newbie here. please warn me but not ban me.


    I have question, its possible to make US PayPal Business Account for non US Citizen even I can make company like LLC at US and get EIN. Can EIN replace SSN at PayPal. The agent said can, but i want to observe first because i don't want to wast thousand dollar for nothing.


    If you wondering why i am not make paypal at my country, the answer is i have working with paypal almost of 2 years, and suddendly my paypal closed and they just said cause of high risk. so i plan to get new acc at us that have lower fee and more feature.

    I have a US paypal account and it wouldn't take my EIN. They allow you to use 2 of 3 options to verify. I believe the options are ssn, verify with bank account, and verify with debit/credit card.

    Any two of those is supposed to lift all limits. Just my bank account leaves me with a $500/mth withdraw limit.

    i know of that.. but u know, some times if our paypal is new and got payment. paypal usually limit and force to put ssn. if asking address verification even via letter, i can do it. but if asking ssn, can replace with ein? another question, any of possibility how can i get banking with ein?

    I was asked for letter verification, but only after they thought that a third party had tried to access my account. The ssn had nothing to do with that. That is just for removing limits (or at least it is for my account?)
