Same problem here ... LONG time user of PP and all of a sudden they want my SS number. According to PP you have to exceed BOTH, $20,000 in sales AND 200 or more transactions ... I have done neither, yet they are holding $62 hostage. Perhaps they should have told me about this SS requirement BEFORE I got the 62$ payment ... not AFTER. PP has to realize that every government agency out there is advising people NOT to give out their SS number. I might understand if they ask for it AFTER you exceed their two limits, not before. PP has proven a itself a business that is very hard to deal with should any dispute arise ... I can only imagine how unhelpful they would be if they have a breach and lose our data. Trying to decide now whether to totally stop using PP. 95% of the time I use it for payments ... which I can easily shift to a CC.
