Idiots Guide To Buy Bitcoin With PayPal In 2017


PayPal, world’s largest on-line payment process but yet you can’t make a Bitcoin purchase with it. Well reason behind this is pretty clear, bitcoin is the cheapest way to transact on-line hence it’s a threat to their business. If you take a look at PayPal TOS 3.7, it is clearly written ” To qualify to receive Micro-payments for Digital Goods, you must submit an application, be approved by us, and have an Account in good standing. By applying for Micro-payments for Digital Goods, you agree that for Digital Goods transactions you receive up to the amounts in the table below, then if a buyer opens a Dispute, PayPal may reverse the transaction, and remove the funds from your Account without requiring the buyer to escalate the Dispute to a Claim.”

Scammer take advantage of this by filing fraudulent charge back with PayPal, where scammer purchase some bitcoins with PayPal, Credit Card and after receiving coins he fraudulently complains to PayPal or their credit card company that they never received the goods. Since PayPal TOS section 3.7 already abandoned virtual currencies, reviewer favour in term of fraud buyer aka scammer. This has caused genuine bitcoin buyers and sellers a lot of frustration and huge losses. This is why every single Bitcoin Trading platform and exchange abandoned to accept PayPal and Credit Card as a deposit.
