I have seen many threads about challenges and delays new guys face in buying their first significant number of Bitcoins:
1.) setting up a Dwolla account, waiting days for verification, waiting days to fund it, waiting to have your transfer accepted to buy Bitcoins on the exchange at Mt.Gox (and paying their commission)
2.) setting up GPG, getting a rating, learning the OTC order system, figuring out who reputable traders are, how to avoid scams, and which payment processors to use to buy Bitcoins over-the-counter on the #bitcoin-otc IRC channel
For customers of Chase bank in the U.S., I present a better solution, toffoo's NEW GUY SPECIAL:
I offer to sell up to 50 BTC, at a small premium to the prevailing Mt.Gox offering price, to any new guy who would like to buy Bitcoins with Chase's QuickPay service. *** No trust, no rating, no verification, and no waiting required. *** Have your new Bitcoins in your wallet in a matter of minutes!
QuickPay is a good option for Bitcoin trading, as it is quick, secure, completely free for both parties, setup is instant for Chase customers, and it avoids most of the chargeback/TOS violation issues of using payment processors like PayPal (which I do NOT recommend!). See more details and sign up here: https://www.chase.com/online/services/quickpay.htm
You can see a real-time updated estimate of where I can offer to sell you Bitcoins by clicking this link to my sell order on the #bitcoin-otc order board:http://bit.ly/toffooNewGuySpecial
This offer is only valid for Chase banking customers in the U.S. making payment via QuickPay, negotiated via #bitcoin-otc IRC channel, which you can access with an IRC client or here: http://bitcoin-otc.com
Please do not leave orders here in the forum as I do not check it often and I will not trade Bitcoins via forum posts or messages.
I do not stand to earn much with this offer, but I thought I could do my little bit to expand the reach of Bitcoin, help out some new guys, and encourage the use of #bitcoin-otc and Chase QuickPay (and DISCOURAGE the use of PayPal!) for OTC trading.
ps: for non-Chase customers, there are similar services such as Popmoney and ING Direct that personally I cannot accept, but there are others in the channel that do
pps: for non-U.S. Bitcoiners, I'm sorry, apart from PayPal (yuk) I do not know of a good international option for online payments
