Hi All,

I'm new to this whole Bitcoin thing, but I love the concept!  I have downloaded a Wallet and registered with Mt. Gox and Bitmarket (so far) and am keen to buy some bitcoins.  However, it seems so difficult to do. Is there anywhere online where I can buy bitcoins from a trusted organisation with a Credit Card or Paypal?  Am I missing something?  By the way, I assume Dwolla only works in the USA - is that correct?

Any help/advice/reassurance most welcome,

Cheers,

Madrigal

MtGox doesn't take paypal or credit cards.  A roundabout way is to go through VirWoX exchange.  You can buy linden dollars (SLL) with paypal or credit card with several currencies.  Then you can buy bitcoins with the SLL.  Otherwise, you can check out bitinstant.com that has various transfer options.  And Dwolla is only in the US.  Good luck.

OK, I visited bitinstant.com, but it doesn't seem to list paypal as a payment option or allow the use of cards - is that right?

Also, can one send Bitcoins from Virwox to my Wallet??

It doesn't look like bitinstant takes paypal.

You can withdraw from VirWoX to any bitcoin address.  They charge a fee of 0.02 BTC per withdraw.

How to buy Bitcoins with a credit card:

Quote
Account Opening: FREE

Monthly Account Maintenance: FREE

SEND Transfers to another SolidTrust Pay Member or Merchant: FREE

Deposit Funds into Your SolidTrust Pay Account
(allow 1 - 5 business days for receipt of funds depending on the type of deposit)

Bank Wire Transfer = $15.00 to $20.00
Money Order/Cheque/Bank Draft = $2.00 to $5.00
Direct Bank Deposit = $2.00 to $5.00
Account Funding and Payments via Credit Card = 5.5% to 6.5% + $1.50 per transaction
INSTANT & Real Time Bank Transfers = 4.5% to 5.5% plus $0.25 per transaction
https://solidtrustpay.com/fees.php

Then from Solid Trust Pay there is no fee when sending to Mt. Gox.

For Paypal, it's a two or three step process.

Hope this helps.

Edit: Solid Trust Pay to Mt. Gox is handled by AurumXchange. Verify with AurumXchange before making any purchases.
https://www.aurumxchange.com/contact

Edit2: 2/23/2012 - Solid Trust Pay to Mt. Gox exchanges at AurumXchange should resume in a week or so, contact AurumXchange for updates.

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.

Yeah, I agree.  SLL/VirWoX works pretty well, but if you are in a hurry, the fees/rates are pretty steep.

If you're in Europe, http://Bitcoinmarket24.com may be an option for you if you're looking for instant delivery of BTC. We're not offering CC or PP purchases though.

Thanks for all you comments guys - much appreciated.  Cablepair offered to sell me some if i can get him cash over the net  - but that is not proving easy due to European Banking Regs.  I must say, it's easier to trade gold - but I'll keep trying!

I think Intersango is based in the UK.  Not endorsing them since I have never traded through them, but it might be an option for you.
