EIN instead of SSN

Hello. Can I open this business account with my EIN instead of SSN? 
I already have an legal LLC, Adress and phone number for this LLC.

You will need to open a US PayPal account (unless there is place to enter SSN/EINs in Dominican Republic accounts) but keep in mind that with business accounts, sooner or later SSNs may be requested for the account holder (the person operating the account for the business) if your account gets limited/funds frozen for identity verification and EINs are entered for the business in its own spot.


There is a field for the SSN, EIN and ITIN on this page:

Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
