Hello all i am intersted in is purchasing bitcoins with usd unfortunitly for me i need to do this with paypal. and io know this is an unpopoular method because of scaming but i will do anything to prov im genuine. is there anyway i could do this any suggestions to get around the fact that u can screw over the other person by saying u didnt recieve them? Maybe by making multiple small transactions i could make seller feel more comfortable. is there a way to neggate or shut off a way to resolution center or prove i recieved bitcoins so the seller knows i couldnt possibly double back on him because there is proof? any help would be much apreciated thanks

The usa. i have very limited financial access and have no way of converting paypal money to cash to buy them from moneygram which is what i usualy do. i will soon have about 500 usd in my paypal and would like to purchase bitcoins with it probably from multiple sellers i suspect to reduce risk.

Why can't you use ACH to withdraw from Paypal, or request a check?

This won't help for getting any coins in the next day or so, but you do have options.

Get a Western Union prepaid card, which carries no monthly fee.  Then you can transfer your PayPal funds to it (ACH/direct deposit).   Then from there, you can link that account using Dwolla and from there move funds to an exchange which accepts Dwolla.

In the meantime, if you have a PayPal debit card, you can withdraw cash from the PayPal account and then deposit that cash into any of the many methods where bitcoins can be purchased with cash, including BitFloor (Chase and Wells Fargo), BitMe (Chase), or for $500 worth, Bitcoins Direct (Bank of America, Wells Fargo or PNC Bank).  Of course BitInstant adds thousands of additional locations like 7-11, Walmart, CVS, Moneygram locations, etc.

For PayPal specifically, the only option I know of is:
 - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beautiful-Physical-Bitcoin-Currency-Note-100-Cotton-32lb-Paper-Loaded-w-Ten-BTC-/320981224642

For credit card, there are a couple options:

With VirWoX you can buy SLL using credit card, then trade SLL for BTC:
 - http://www.VirWoX.com

Physical Bitcoin, paid for with credit card:
