Is there a way for me to accept credit cards on my site through a third party provider and then said provider automatically converts to Bitcoins and send me BTC rather than fiat?

No, such service doesn't exist yet.

Nothing like that, but I believe bitpay allows that service the other way around Tongue

*BUMP*

Is there a way to do this yet?  I've seen a few sites that allow direct purchase of BTC with CC...seems like a step away from being able to create a link that would have your website name and BTC address that these companies could then auto-fill-in and allow your customer to give CC details. Why has nobody done this...or have they?  Anyone know?

I am specifically looking for a means to accept donations on a website via visa/mastercard/etc.   - I'd be fine with BTC sitting in escrow until no risk of chargeback too!  I just want this service so I won't need a bank account.

there are many companies that accept credit cards but none of them pay you in bitcoins
we need to wait and see if any company launch this service
most sellers want to accept bitcoin and get paid in fiat, and you are asking about reverse

yes, I am seeking the reverse. I think it would be very helpful for the unbanked who would like to have the participation of those who either don't want the hassle of getting bitcoin just to donate or who are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with bitcoin. I believe this is a huge market.

There are sites that allow you to buy bitcoin with a credit card, so I was surprised that they haven't taken the obvious step of allowing people to link to their site with a code that would auto-generate a pay/donate form specific to the originated website.  

If there is fear regarding charge-backs they could just hold the payments until that risk is gone - a hassle for the receiver of the BTC, but better late BTC than no BTC - at least for me.  :-)

Hopefully someone will get this going soon.

its actually something that is very weird it doesnt exist , but i think the reason is that then people dont have to use bitcoins , and they wont even know they got converted to bitcoins. and we have to spread awareness :>

No and unfortunately you will not find that because that company can't exist due to fraud prevalence.

But what if they put the received funds into an escrow system until risk of charge-back is over?

I've been working to use paypal or google wallet or merchantinc to accept credit cards for donations, but I've found they all want you to have 501c3 status, which takes a lot of upfront money and between 3-6 months of time to set-up...not to mention having the IRS breathing down your neck.  I've set-up a NXT-asset for donations via bitcoin through (https://trade.secureae.com/) , but that has a very limited audience - most people who come to the site don't know what that is and won't donate.

I suspect there are a large number of people who'd like such a service - a way to go around the banks, paypal, etc.  Suffering a delay to get funds isn't a dealbreaker as not having funds at all is a much worse situation.

Cheers

Such a service would be very risky for the cc-provider as he is responsible to collect the money from the used cc's and if somebody uses stolen credit cards to buy, they would be the people that sent the irreversible Bitcointransaction but never received the reversible money from the cc.

Not yet, but it's a great request. They already work backwards. Price has been somewhat stable lately though (all things considered) so you can just convert as money comes in.

Why not just use an escrow system until the risk of fraud is over?  Sure would create a delay on getting funds, but better funding than no funding. People like me who are trying to get donations would love a service like this.

I can't get the money to come in at all without 501c3 status.  In the US - you can't accept US dollar donations (paypal up to $10K, then they start sniffing) without being certified a not-for-profit by the IRS. It's also expensive and takes up to six months.
