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)
-or-
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

Seller with a great record.  I'm glad I took this opportunity to get into bitcoins.  No hassle at all.  You can get some bitcoins and start trading with them while you're setting your accounts up with exchangers and whatnot.

Dunno why, but this reply makes this scream "SCAM!" to me.  Maybe I'm being paranoid?

Fair enough, it's always good to be a bit paranoid when buying/selling things on the Internet (especially Bitcoins!).  But given that I'm specifically marketing this offer as a service to help out new guys, should you be entirely surprised that someone with no post history replied to it?

Rather than confiding in whatever comments I may receive here from new posters, you can take a look at my Web of Trust rating from trading in the #bitcoin-otc channel:

http://bitcoin-otc.com/viewratingdetail.php?nick=toffoo

I am also listed in a few of the "List of honest traders" and "A list of Trusted Dwolla Traders" threads here on the forum.  I have not been particularly active posting here in the forum but I have been quite active trading in the IRC channel for several months now.

I've actually been casually running this offer for some time in the IRC channel since discovering the Chase Quickpay service and since it's working out pretty well and people seem to like it I recently decided to open it up to a wider audience with the forum post.  Since the PayPal crackdown and closure of CoinPal and Bitcoin Morpheus there aren't many other good options for new guys to quickly/easily get involved.


So again, it's good to be a bit paranoid and I appreciate your skepticism, but this is an honest offer to use a relatively fraud-free payment processor to deal with a reputable trader with a good rating and a long, documented trading history.  You could do a lot worse!

ps: if I was really a scammer I would have offered to BUY Bitcoins for PayPal!   Wink

Sorry, I was more directing that at the replier and not you (although reading my reply I see why it would come across that way).  I've been trying to get my key setup for bitcoin-otc, do you still sell btc via PPUSD?

Nope, sorry, PayPal permanently froze my account the same weekend they closed down CoinPal and others.

There are others in the channel who will deal vs. PPUSD (usually only to highly rated/trusted counterparties and at premium prices) but I would advice you and them against it, because it's just a matter of time until they get you too.

ps: if you are going to try to buy Bitcoins with PayPal, use payment type Personal/Gift and put something like "Sorry about your dog, I hope he's feeling better!" in the comments ... it might slow them down a bit until they close your account.
