I'm not sure, but i think this question was posted on the forum before.

However, here you go.

It depends on the country, but this may help:

Your bank account

to

Dwolla OR Liberty Reserve

to

Mt Gox


also, www.tradehill.com just opened up and I think you can directly transfer from your bank to them so that would skip the fees/time of the middle men.

I personally didn't do this stuff, I bought with cash, but for that you need to find someone to sell for cash.

You options are:

Offer products or services for bitcoins, the marketplace forum is a good place to start if you take that approach. To deal with the trust issue consider using a escrow service such as clearcoin. https://clearcoin.appspot.com/

Use one of the exchanges to buy some. Mt.Gox is the largest. You can get funds in through Dwolla or Liberty Reserve.  Dwolla is simpler and cheap but slow. I don't know how fast Liberty Reserve is looked too complicated to bother with when I looked at it.

Use you computer power to help secure the bitcoin network and earn bitcoins in exchange. The mining forum has more information about that. It requires high end GPU(s) preferably AMD ones and some technical knowledge. If you want earnings at a slow and steady rate rather than large amounts rarely you need to join a mining pool.

If you're in the US, follow these steps for the fastest way to get Bitcoin:

1) Create a free exchange account with MtGox.com or CryptoXChange.com (5 mins)
2) Go to BitInstant and create a cash deposit order  (5 mins)
3) Drive to a local bank branch of Bank of America, Chase, Citi, or Wells Fargo (you don't need an account with them)  (15 mins)
4) Deposit your cash according to the instructions from BitInstant (5 mins)

Then, probably before you even get home, you'll have credit in your exchange account to buy Bitcoins. You can literally have the Bitcoins an hour from now. Of all the ways to get Bitcoin, this is by far the fastest and easiest.

Using an exchange is likely the most common way people get bitcoins. Exchanges are business that broker trades between people. The buyers and sellers using the exchange set the rates by putting in an order to buy or sell.

This is best directory of exchanges that I've been able to find. https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Category:Exchanges

Exchangers are businesses that sell (and buy) bitcoins to the public and set the rates themselves. These are likely the next most common way people buy bitcoins.

 You can exchange. But if you don't have money for that use coinworker.com

 You don't get much from coinworker but it helps out. I always do it! And it's fun!

Wow, I was wondering how'd I'd miss this thread, and then I looked at the date of it.

In that time Intersango.com has grown a lot, becoming #1 in GBP and also trading in USD and Euro.

Yes, the cash deposit via BitInstant.com is by far the best method for anyone in the US.
