So obviously I am brand new to bitcoin.

How can I send a bitcoin using a paper QR code.

For instance, I want to see a coin and send it via UPS (for Tracking purpose) to prevent a chargeback.

Any advice?

Also, any other advise on selling BTC via ebay would be appreciated.

I too was wondering about how QR codes work with Bitcoin, and found your question. I wonder why no one has answered?

I'll say one thing as a buyer of Bitcoin on eBay, one guy I dealt with said he kept being ripped off (think stolen credit cards). Physical Bitcoins might be a bit better, since you'll at least have a physical address that received the item. But I'd be cautious, people are good at exploiting situations...

sending via UPS with tracking won't necessarily prevent a chargeback, but if you want to attempt it anyhow the method will depend on the wallet that you are using.

Essentially, the process would be to generate a brand new bitcoin address, then send the amount you wish to transfer to that address.
Next you export the private key for the address and print that out (or print out a QR code representation of it).

This private key printout is what you would send.
