Hi,

I have looked around to try find a way to buy/sell BTC from South Africa with almost no luck.

I could possibly buy with paypal when a user on these forums is selling and doesn't mind paypal but are the no sites what still allow it or a credit card purchase(that is safe to use)?

I have found no way to sell my BTC so that I end with it in my bank as ZAR. An alternative I have seen is a temp visa card that they transfer the $ value into - are these relatively safe and can these cards be used internationally?

Any help/advice would be appreciated Smiley

Thanks,
sjs1985

I believe Crypto X Change (cryptoxchange.com) accepts ZAR and can send ZAR out to your bank as well.

Give them a try!

Ya, using a PayPal account or credit card for buying bitcoins is pretty much a non-starter no matter which country you are from.

Cashing out (selling bitcoins) to PayPal is easier. 

 - http://www.spendbitcoins.com   (just pay the normal fees that the merchant incurs .. 2.9% + $0.30)
 - http://www.BitcoinNordic.com   (10% fee)

For larger amounts, using an exchange and withdrawing to a bank is probably the least expensive.  For example:
 - http://cryptoxchange.com/blog/7/new-improvements-at-crypto-x-change-deposit-withdraw-any-currency-now-for-5


I have found no way to sell my BTC so that I end with it in my bank as ZAR. An alternative I have seen is a temp visa card that they transfer the $ value into - are these relatively safe and can these cards be used internationally?

The cards from OKPay and AurumXChange can be used internationally.

1. Sell your BTC on Crypto X Change in any AUD or USD market (https://cryptoxchange.com/)
2. Request a withdraw from them in ZAR as receiving currency. ( fees 5 AUD + 0.6%, no international wire transfer cost )

Please  note you will need to get verified with them for any amount over 500$.

Cheers

CryptoXChange.com - AUD deposits/withdraw now $5 only

I have found no way to sell my BTC so that I end with it in my bank as ZAR.

Another method just recently made available to cash out bitcoins to ZAR at a bank is to use CA Virtex, which lets you withdraw your funds (CAD) to your Payza (formerly AlertPay) account.  From there, withdrawal (as ZAR) to a South African bank is possible.
