If you are sad you can't buy bitcoins with your paypal account, you can always bid on my ebay auction. See the thread about it here: http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=7072

https://squareup.com/ might be an option for accepting credit card payments.... the logistics of actually doing it are a little beyond what my brain is willing to handle at the moment but it presents a path that may be walkable.

Actually, I just realized that you can buy bitcoins with your credit card right now on the ebay auction I linked to, if you are in the U.S.

Squareup looks like it might be pretty awesome, just in general.  At first glance at least.

Wrt Bitcoin, it could be excellent for face-to-face transactions.  Swipe the card, wait for the money to clear, use your phone to send the bitcoins.  Though, I can't imagine how there would be a significant amount of business for someone selling bitcoin in the streets like that.

Liqpay is also a good credit card payment processing service.

I use square for my tech support business, it works as a good platform / example of how the transaction process might be able to work with a bitcoin wallet app. Either it does not require that you have the card, you can manually key in the CC info as well. Square has no idea what was bought, your CC company won't see the transactions as bitcoin.

But then who is going to email their CC info? I would hope very few unless they were using onetime use cards.

Since a chargeback against a credit card transaction is easy, I don't know that this would be an option for selling bitcoin "in the streets", though I suppose for friends and family it might be suitable.  2.75%.  No different than using PayPal, except that PayPal has the "personal / gift" option where no fees are incurred by the recipient.  AmEx's Serve is another credit-card + ACH based payment network similar to PayPal, and for now (through August, 2011) they charge no fees to either the sender or the recipient.  

Again, if you trust that you won't get charged back, these all work fine for person-to-person payment methods.

  http://serve.com

There's a good list of options being built here: http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=7069.0

Exchanging in and out of bitcoins for each transaction certainly gets to be expensive though.

I'd just like to thank you for your support in helping me to get some of my first bitcoins.  The transactions were always swift and without hassle.

The effect of cutting Bitcoin exchangers off of Paypal: 

1) Users will still trade Bitcoins for Dollars.

2) But now they will be individually paypalling those dollars to each other, instead of using a central service.

3) Seems to me that if you have a supercomputer, and you have access to Amazon's transactions, and you have access to the block chain, then this move makes it suddenly much easier to associate block chain transactions with paypal transactions.

4) Basically if this came from higher up, the purpose was to make the block chain traceable.

5) Anyone receiving dollars in Paypal has a verified identity, taxpayer ID, bank account, etc.


I think it's time for Bitcoin aficionados to consider anonymity layers...


I agree.

What do you mean by "get my money from bitcoin account"? Do you have bitcoins you wish to send to someone?

What a bunch of cunts!

What if this community decided to put their paypal accounts where their mouth is and gave you their own account to operate coinpal with. Is it even feasible? If so, how many frozen paypal accounts do you think it would take for them to reverse the policy?

PM me if you have ideas. Very serious about what you said, but a different strategy in mind.

What about Western Union?

If I can use my W.U. online account to send money to someone in China, who then picks up in cash, they've clearly addressed the fraud charge-back thing (I think they ring you to confirm the transaction). Could CoinCard use WU instead?

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!

Yes. (I was quoted $45 for transferring $1000 from Israel to US by MoneyGram). WU is the polar opposite of CoinCard (which was about instant, cheap, easy cashout for small to medium amounts). BitcoinExchange offers cashing out bitcoins for WU.

Western Union is expensive, it makes sense for big transfers but not for small. There is also Moneygram as alternative.

Glad to hear you might just send it using debit cards.

I think that'll be a better long-term plan, and most people already have one.

Please update us with any new info! I'll probably not sell btc for a while, but when I do hopefully you get this working again!  Smiley
