Kinda. They have a sour taste in my mouth for essentially accepting a premined bribe to list something called NovaCoins.

The site is used by scammers for the most part, but the owner didn't create it to scam users.

I've done a little bit of BTC <-> LTC there and haven't had any issues... just a high withdraw fee on LTC (0.5)

I still don't get why one shouldn't use paypal to buy bitcoins.. if you can prove you sent the bitcoins, paypal will never sent the money back to the buyer..

If you can prove you sent the bitcoins and the buyer doesn't claim they were hacked, then PayPal can shut down both accounts for violating their AUP.

Plus the person can always claim their paypal account was hacked.

What about gift paypal paments? Quick easy no seller commision and unreversible
When these payments are sent to you from an account that has been hacked into and the original owner complains, or the payment is funded with a stolen or disputed credit card, you'll find out quickly how reversible PayPal is. PayPal isn't going to be left holding the bag, they pass their fraud losses on to you.

My friend just learned this the hard way. The week the BC bubble burst...he was selling coins for nearly 25% more than Gox weighted average price. I was baffled that this was happening and told him it sounds too good to be true. But they buyers kept buying and the dollar signs took over the rationale portion of his mind. They were even contacting him outside of the But It Now auctions he had listed asking for more. It was then he started realizing the poorly written English and stopped it all.

By the end of last week...I think he lost a total of $1k+ after PayPal stated that all transactions were not made by the actually account owner...bc the accounts had been hacked. PayPal had then provided an example of one of the accounts' login history...in a 48 hour period, the account had logged in multiple times from somewhere in Mumbai when the account owner actually lived in Salt Lake City, UT.

HaHa, That is my exact story from this week. except i live on the east coast and it was about $1.300. Ebay wouldn't even flag the accounts after paypal reversed the transaction for a unauthorized transactions.

The safest way to buy/sell coins with paypal is to NOT do it..

A lot of good advice here. I wasn't aware PP had a policy against currency exchange, and such a high freeze rate, so I'll be sure to stay away.

2 weeks ago I was able to buy my first bitcoin with PayPal from an ad on https://localbitcoins.com/
I had to have a FUNDED and confirmed PayPal account.
I went to Walmart and got a MoneyPak (fee) and deposited into PayPal.
It was a little confusing but got my bitcoin same day.
Now I need to see how much it actually cost me over exchange rate.

I've used localbitcoins before, and I even made a friend from it. Good service, and I can usually find coins UNDER market there.
