    Hello people,

    I have a situation! I got my inv yesterday but I'm having a problem with Paypal... Basically the problem is that I'm living in the US as an International Student and when I tried to add the money to my PP account they asked me for my SSN, which I don't have.. so now my PP account is limited ( I can't add money) Therefore, I'm &(^%! and maybe I won't be able to buy the 1... However, if someone have a solution plz hit me!!!. Moreover, I will giveaway my future invs to the best solutions on this thread.


    We got 9 hours and counting :eek:

    You know, I have exactly the same situation as you. I am an international student residing in the US. What I do to use PP is that I have a bank account here in the US, that I use linked to my PP. Doing it this way I have been able to use PP without any problems. Also, make sure that your PP account is Personal. If you have Premier or anything higher, it will start harrassing you for your SSN.

    See if you have your SSN somewhere on your computer, saved from a job application or any documents. Maybe call a family member who would know it?

    if you dont come up with a solution, you can give me your invite and i can send you one after i get my own. (but i think theres a 3 week wait?) or give it to someone else who seems fit enough for it!

    Why are you trying to add money to your PayPal? You don't need to "add" money, just pay with your debit or credit card. You don't even need a PayPal account.

    The issue here is that, as an International Student, we don't really have a SSN. If one has a Personal PP account, it isn't really a problem. However, if the PP account is higher than that, PayPal usually starts harassing the user for its SSN. Another thing, as well, is that one should NEVER keep PayPal balance in their account for substantial periods of time, as using them as a depository institution will prompt them to start asking for a SSN.

    Use a credit card and use the checkout as guest option. you have to be logged out of paypal for that.

    Are PP and CC the only given ways to pay for the phone? Can't you get your parents/relatives/friends to pay for you via their CC, with you paying them back by hands? Isn't there anybody with a CC near expiration date they can lend you?
    Or ask your bank for a way to transfer money to OnePlus in time for this operation, and contact OnePlus for alternatives. You can get CCs over the Internet that only last a few days. I'll go resume those and post them asap.
