    Paypal has limited me to the amount of money I can transfer to my bank account which is $500 a month. My account is verified but in order to lift the limit, they want my SS #. It is a stealth account so I can't do that. Because I have more than $500 in my account that I wish to utilize, I thought I could just make purchases online through places like Walmart that accept Paypal. I am not exactly sure if I have a spending limit, I couldn't find it anywhere on Paypal but my main question is for anyone who has done this, if I make a purchase through Walmart and have them ship the items to my real address which does not match my Paypal registered address, would Paypal know where it was being shipped to? I just don't want them to link the two different addresses and then get suspended or restricted.

    Yes Paypal will know where you're shipping to and can easily link the two accounts.

    There are so many transactions taking place on PP every day that I doubt it would happen though- Still, go get a business working tax id. Should work as a SS# alternative and is much more effective

    I don't know. My pp is verified and legit with id ss and bank, but I imagine it is limited. I sometimes get locked out of my card for "suspicious activity even if I use my card in another town or state and have to call PayPal and fix it, this happens once every couple of months. I've dealt with a lot of their customer service, some are nicer than others. If I get a bitch I hang up until I get a dude who is cool

    I made a purchase and you can definitely see where it's being shipped to and you can even see what I ordered. It is still processing so even if it does work, I don't think I will be doing it again because it's too risky.

    Does the EIN/tax id have to match the address and name? I have a business tax id but it is under my legal name.

    you can add a new address and ship item to it. You need a real info, because pp will require you send some proofs to verify your account
