Signing Up for Stripe as a Sole Proprietor: Do Not Have Employer ID Number, Using Social Security Number Instead

Question

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

Answer

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.
