More people should sell bitcoins on Ebay.  The only seller I've seen is this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/10-Bitcoins-/330568092684?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4cf764cc0c#ht_500wt_1156  It seems popular.  We have to be careful though we don't want Ebay to blacklist Bitcoins

I just bought my first Bitcoins on an eBay auction today.

Yes, I paid more on eBay than from one of the direct exchangers.  But buying on eBay is easy, almost effortless.  And using eBay is a simple way to exchange PayPal for Bitcoins.  Plus, two other, important factors:

  • eBay offers a reputation rating of the seller.  
  • If there is any problem, eBay has a good dispute resolution system.

For someone just starting with Bitcoin, eBay is an easy -- and safe -- first step.   I'll buy again on eBay for those benefits.  

Of course, eBay and PayPal are very much not anonymous.  So that's the negative side.

Now, I wonder, are eBay sellers just one-time deals?  Or, are Bitcoin miners selling their output on eBay?  If so, that would be a convenient way to buy Bitcoins from a variety of miners who may have output available at varying times.  Rather than buying direct from a stranger, I'd use the eBay "private auction" system, just for the "insurance" factors mentioned above.

From another thread:
Not paypal, no. They've forbidden the selling of bitcoins. And even for those who don't care, selling bitcoins for paypal is somehow dangerous since paypal transfers are reversible while bitcoin transfers are not.

Thank you Caveden.  I just used PayPal to pay for Bitcoins a few minutes ago -- via an eBay auction -- I need to learn about essential factors like that.  It's well-known to the veterans here, but it's new for newcomers like me.

There was a time, when one could at least believe the above to be true. But from my point of view this is long over.

Did you just pay 15$/BTC?!  Shocked

Have you tried bitcoinmarket.com (where the rate seems to be 11$ BID, 11.5$ ASK)?

eBay forbids the selling of currency. They will suspend your account.

Really?  http://coins.shop.ebay.com/

I think it's more of the "you must sell something tangible" rule.  For example, I doubt a band could sell mp3 albums on eBay.

I'm going off of a message eBay sent to me today after my posting to sell bitcoin was flagged. The message says the posting was removed after a review determined that the listing was selling a currency....specifically.

PayPal doesn't allow it's use for sale of anything like Bitcoin, Liberty Reserve, Pecunix ect.
Why? Because of all the scams. If you just bought bitcoins do  a chargeback after you received them. Free coins
