Sole proprietor register with social security number instead of Employer ID Number (EIN)

Can I use my social security number instead of an Employer Identification Number (EIN) if I’m a sole proprietor?

If you are a sole proprietor and do not have a federal Employer Identification Number (EIN), or if you would rather use your social security number instead, you can skip the EIN field in the account activation form altogether.
