That is against the PayPal rules. 

You might go to http://blockchain.info and import or set up an account.
Open your wallet.
Cash deposit
(now you are on the BitInstant page)
Fill out the form, print it out.
Take the resulting MoneyGram 1 page invoice to one of the locations they show.  This will be a place where people pay their utility bills, such as a large grocery store's customer service desk.




I try to be respectful and informed.

People are greedy money grubbers man. You've seen TV shows with stringed-up quarters so people can get a free gumball, right? Well 0.25$ USD = .0125 BTC !!!

The thing to worry about is not the reputation of the seller, but of the buyer  You would need a much bigger track history of honesty and reliability before anyone reputable would trust you to pay for bitcoin with paypal.

It's hard to get that track record when I can't be given a chance.

Quite the conundrum, eh?

You can get a chance, but you'll have to do it like everybody else.  Go use coinbase, bitinstant, mtgox, etc. to purchase bitcoins, and do some individual trading with them.  Then you'll have some sort of reputation and track record.

I just concluded my first coinbase transaction today, and at this point I think it beats all the alternatives.  Sure it'd be great if I could whip out a credit card and buy bitcoins with it, but nobody can do that today, essentially.  So if you really want a bitcoin, you'll have to work for it, friend.  If you are not willing to put in enough work to learn how to use the system, you probably aren't worth taking an extra risk on (paypal).

Buy something tangible with paypal or credit card. Sell it for Bitcoins. Ship first to trusted individuals if necessary. Build a reputation.

Or just use https://localbitcoins.com/ and pay with cash.

Problem with localbitcoins is the closest place is still a distance from me.

If you looking on bitcoin otc ( http://bitcoin-otc.com/ ) you can search for people willing to sell for BTC. They usually charge about 5-10% premium due to the added risk.

Making Apps and Websites for people. I charge reasonable rates ($30-40/hour in BTC).

I wouldn't mine paying a bit extra to someone on here willing to do the transaction, and to the guy above I do not have a fb account sorry. Sad

This is exactly why I believe the future of bitcoin exchange for newbies will be in workforce development, not cash-for-coin exchanges. It's just too difficult to break into still (and possibly in the future depending on law changes and exchange longevity), but there is always work ready to be done in exchange for coins.

@OP: Why not change the title of your thread to "Will do any job for 1 BTC" and I bet you'd get a dozen PMs for various small tasks.

He is not making an unreasonable request. It is a small amount, and I'll bet he is open to other payment options. It's the PayPal part that no one wants.
What about selling something for bitcoin? People often forget this option. Think about something you have that you would part with for a low price.
