PayPal asking for SSN (Social Security Number)

Post by prattj47 »

I am unable to process an eBay refund because PayPal is demanding my social security number (SSN). I am not comfortable revealing that to PayPal. Can anyone help me get past this screen asking for SSN and process the refund?

Any insight or solution is appreciated! Thanks!

Hi prattj47,

According to Paypal's security and regulation requirements and the user agreement you've signed up for, you can either give your Social Security Number or not use Paypal overall.
