The fees are ridiculous.To buy 9USD worth of BTC,you have to pay 14USD via paypal.
It's weird that those people actually have sales.


Ebey is a trading platform with millions of users. Some people do not want to delve into the search for other options for buying cryptocurrency, it is easier for them to take advantage of such options that Ebay gives, so why not?  Grin

It is better to buy bitcoin at any trusted exchange than to but  in eBay. Identifying the risks are important so you should aware tot he risks that you will take if you will biy bitcoins in eBay. Always remember there are now many scammers and we should be careful.

I did in 2013. It went fine. Then I got raped but not for much. My fault. I wouldn't do it again and Ebay do all they can to get rid of it and I can't blame them. There are lots of sellers on there who know how clueless people are and I remember prices of 10-100x more than the market price on there.

Loads of people never go any further than Ebay or Amazon and sellers know that. Anything hyped can go for way more than you get elsewhere and crypto is no exception.

I think trusted if you use bitcoin as your purchase transaction on eBay, you can buy anything there and use bitcoin as currency payment, I look many people use PayPal as their payment transaction but easy and faster if you use bitcoin as your currency on eBay.

I know eBay as buying and selling things, never thought that it involves cryptocurrency too. I never experienced buying there as we have a local app here that supports Bitcoins and other popular altcoins in the market. Anyway, the prices mentioned in the comments are a little high, might as well find a local app and buy it from there. Those eBay sellers are probably just taking advantage of the people who are new to the cryptocurrency.

Lol why won't they have sales when there are people who don't know anything about cryptocurrency? There are lots of people that don't know where to buy Bitcoin, especially the newbies that will be making use of eBay because they feel that using it will be a much safer option and they wouldn't get scammed, and I don't blame them lol, there are lots of scammers out there.

But, even as a newbie I never bought from such, I did my research properly and my first Bitcoin I bought it from Coinbase. If I saw such offer back then I don't think I would buy it, how am I even sure that I would recover those? I can't make such mistakes. Funny thing is, those that are buying from these eBay sellers will see it as a stupid mistake when they get to know about cryptocurrency the more.

I didn't actually know it was possible to purchase Bitcoin from eBay.
 But you are right, the fee is ridiculously high, who would pay such fee for a small amount is for btc

I think Ebay thought of it as taking money, or cryptocurrencies. It is already known that Ebay has a trading platform with over millions of users, and these people may not know how big the fee really is, if anyone with little knowledge of bitcoin would just laugh at that fee.
But from reliable information I know that it's actually going well, Ebay has done it great for its profit.

You have balls, I never thought that there are people who are willing to buy bitcoin using eBay. I think they are doing it because they do not know the exchanges or the wallets that they can use to buy bitcoins. My first bought of bitcoin was 2015 and I used bittrex exchange. It was successful and for my experience, buying bitcoins in exchange is more better.

ebay is indeed not a special market to buy btc, it's good to use a truly verified exchange to buy btc. the first time i bought btc on indodax one of the major exchanges in my country, and so far i still use it

I was browsing eBay and I see many sellers,who are selling bitcoin and altcoins.
I thought that eBay isn't crypto friendly,but the sellers,who are selling 24-hour btc mining contracts.
The fees are ridiculous.To buy 9USD worth of BTC,you have to pay 14USD via paypal.
It's weird that those people actually have sales.
I am not using eBay to purchase anything for a long time but i have see ASIC machine sales in the past, are they selling the coins or are they dealing with hardware and collecting crypto as payment, i am not sure what you mean by 24 hours bitcoin mining contracts, you will get to have a virtual mining set up for a day and how much profit you will be able to make  Undecided. Not sure who will be purchasing those as you might get newbies to invest in mining contracts.

No. And don't even consider buying bitcoin there. Just go invest in a trading site in order to have a bitcoin because that is the safest way to earn it. The deals about cryptocurrencies in that site are just hilarious and unreasonable.

It is better to buy bitcoin from the recommended website which we can find in here, or we can use the local exchange to buy directly. Although eBay is a big store online, I fee I am not confident to buy in eBay. But maybe many people used eBay to buy and sell so many things, including bitcoin and they prefer to purchase with eBay because they have an excellent experience to do that in eBay. We can say it's ridiculous, but for them, it's not like that because they trust eBay as a big store online for them.

never.. from the first time I got to know Bitcoin, I never bought Bitcoin on e-bay. I think that's a strange thing (buying Bitcoin on e-bay).

The fees are ridiculous.To buy 9USD worth of BTC,you have to pay 14USD via paypal.
It's weird that those people actually have sales.
maybe those who buy there are new people who want to buy Bitcoin but are afraid and don't trust local/international exchange!!  or the buyer is just seller manipulation.

I don't think anyone would feel comfortable buying BTC or other crypto on eBay obviously. It's highly unsafe and not trusted. I think local bitcoins is a very safer option than eBay. I think it might be for people absolutely new to crypto world because they might not know anything and in hope of buying BTC might get scammed by these people. Who knows you might get a metal bitcoin delivered at your address the very next day Tongue

Maybe that's the reason some people, but not a few who buy btc on ebay just to try. Although it looks silly, but there are still many who do it and not a few of the btc sellers use ebay as a marketing media. But here I also think of this as a new mode for scammers.

I never browsed for any crypto coins in any e-shops in the internet. I didn't know these sellers sell that kind of stuff. I don't think there's any reason to prefer that than browsing here in forum or buying in Coinbase. It ain't proving its convenience for me so I won't ever choose any e-shops as an alternative to invest here in crypto. They're just probably trying to target people who are paranoid enough due to how unsecure some exchanges are.

basically it is better to use an exchange that already has high trust to buy bitcoin, because if you use a marketplace like eBay it is more suitable for buying items. the reason for securing funds owned from bad things that might happen

Bitcoin on ebay? Is like looking to he scammed. You do not conduct such business on eBay. Would you invest or buy stocks in a company someone was selling on eBay? With no lawyer or anything?

There already many exchanges why waste your time? What benefit would using Ebay bring you? I see only problems and headache. Listen to the people here and don't do it.
