Hi there,

I would like to buy a couple bitcoins from someone using paypal. I'm interested in how this system works but can't find an easy way to buy.

Thanks!

132 views, and no replies.  Consider using something other than PayPal.  PayPal burns us, it is perceived that PayPal is prejudicial against Bitcoins as being competition, and that PayPal unfairly punishes sellers of Bitcoins with an unfair chargeback risk.  Consider making this offer using one of PayPal's competitors like Dwolla, or Chase QuickPay.

As an example... I have had a PayPal account for over ten years... should be trusted right? Yet I have coins for sale, but refuse to sell a single bitcoin with PayPal.  PayPal freezes accounts arbitrarily just to "ask questions" and Bitcoin puts us on their radar.  I feel that my account will be tarnished if PayPal is ever able to determine that I sold a bitcoin regardless of how.  Just won't do it, even for 2 BTC.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

I am in the same boat. I have money in my paypal account but can't find anyone that will take paypal money for trade. I have several subscriptions via paypal for advertising on my websites. I am hoping to find friends who will do it on the low low Wink

Just sign up an account with Dwolla.  The procedure is actually pretty much the same as PayPal (e.g. confirming two small deposits to your bank account) and then you can avoid doing business with The Devil.

Shouldn't this post be listed in Selling as you're not offering Bitcoins to purchase something?

Thank you for your advice casacius. I will make an account there.
