I would like to buy Bitcoins from folks in the Marketplace Currency Exchange forum...These delays in ACH depostis to Dwolla or Paxum are a pain...what is the most widely accepted payment method, MoneyPak, PayPal, Amazon Gift card or something else?? I would prefer PayPal but I know that sellers are not to keen to accept that due to the chargebacks that have occurred in the past. I'm looking for $200-$300 USD in Bitcoins.

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Hi Sharpy,

MoneyPak - Yes (I see many using this method)
Amazon Gift Card - Yes
PayPal - Never because of chargeback fraud.

Thanks for the reply...I am unfamiliar with MoneyPak, but looking at the website I see I can buy one at lots of local stores. Once purchased,  does a buyer have to physically mail it to a seller or is it possible to somehow transfer it instantly online?Huh...

The Amazon gift card thing seems to be easiest....

Actually you can send someone the code and it can be used to charge up a Paypal account. It can NOT be charged back.

Looks like Amazon Gift Card and MoneyPak is the most popular way of buy BTC here?

Hi Sharpy,

MoneyPaks are available in most grocery stores in USA.

The Wallmart MoneyCard is Green Dots major partner.

Netspend offers a similar service.
