There have been three recent entries into this market. I did use the first two - until they stopped doing business. The third appears to still be in business but I have not used them because they ask for too much information in order to process a credit card order:http://www.mrcoins.org
now "out of stock"http://simplecoin.com
having "technical difficulties"http://www.klooch.com
if anyone tries this let me know how it goes. I am not willing to give them all the info they require at this time.
Just for the heck of it I tried to sign up for an account at http://buybitcoins.com
and to my surprise it appeared to work. Again I am not willing to give them the amount of information they request - and it kind of looked fishy since you enter your credit card info on an unsecured (http) page instead of a secured (https) page. But again if anyone is willing to risk it let me know how it goes.
It's odd that the people who are unwilling to give the amount of info these sites are asking for are the only people i'm seeing talk about them.
They're asking for all of this info to deter chargebacks or at least have the necessary information to verify that the card was not stolen so they can go after the person issuing the chargeback.
Anyone have any news on when this
will be available?
btcnow.net starts pretty close to mtgox too
I wonder how long google will stand for this? lol
Also, anyone have any actual info on btcnow (as it is now)? No news is confusing news.
