But for western union I think its abit safe since in most WU transfers there is no wallet involved.. The intention of the sender is clearly interpreted interpreted and the receiver can withdraw funds three minutes after the transfer has been effected

I think the cheapest option to fund your account is bank transfer. It cost me nothing when i did it. But when i used my credit card, they charged me around 5% of the total amount

Or just use a screencast video of you paying via 'friends and family', which doesn't allow chargebacks

Thanks
Why would you want to do that?

You are wrong there.

When the subject of buying BTC with Paypal comes up, I often remember this: 

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Money sent through PayPal and any other money transfer service that accepts credit cards can be easily reversed by the sender, even after several weeks. Therefore, you should only accept PayPal in trades with people you trust very highly.

I see trade offers which is not 1:1 between BTC & PP. Like pay 30 usd as btc and get 33 usd via paypal. What is the purpose of it? Assume you did it through a trusted escrow and not it's also not reversed; so what risk you get? Or how to do it, what kind of wallet or intermediate ways not to get tracked?

The rates are not with PayPal only. It's usually justified by the risks of dealing with someone using a reversible payment method or the volatility of bitcoin price.

It's useless to use an escrow with reversible transfer services but If you ever do that and the transaction didn't get reversed, there are no other risks. (keep in mind that someone could reverse even after months of the transaction). As for the last part of your question, I'm not sure what do you mean by getting tracked.

I'm not sure what do you mean by getting tracked.

What i mean why someone sells money without 1:1 ratio? The risk what i meant is getting traced by the gov. You earned some bucks like %110 ratio, you have it in paypal, right? Now you'll withdraw these, right? Assume that photo ID is valid or whatever. If you withdraw, what is the risk you get? I'm not only saying what if money will be get reversed or not; it's a risk yes, but not the legal risk.

Cheers.

I doubt there is such law because It doesn't make much sense, bitcoin rates are different from exchanges so instead of saying preev.com +5% for example, one could simply use the exchange with the highest price. I'm far from being able to give you a legal advice, so I suggest checking this with a lawyer or something. Either way, you're dealing with an individual so your bank/paypal can't really know the purpose of the transaction and the rates unless they has been mentioned in a message from the sender.

I sold a computer power supply on ebay using paypal. Well the guys paid then wrote me it is broken. Before I could answer him my paypal was minus. He toke his money back. But it is not that simple anymore! The money he took back was put in a special account. He was required to send me the Power Supply before the money was released.
I would assume a plan money transfer is the same. But dont know but worth looking into!

Thank you theymos for the information you shared. I have a Paypal account and I tried it in purchasing an android app. But since you warn us I will avoid using it and try other payment portal like coins.ph and Paymaya.

good to know..
Are there any ways to increase the reputation?

You need to assure customers that using Paypal is efficient, no delays..
