Buy Bitcoin with Paypal – step by step tutorial

One of the biggest issues today in Bitcoin is the fact that you can’t buy it very easily. Even though Paypal has been very favourable of Bitcoin in the past 2 years, it’s still an issue to find credible places to buy Bitcoins with Paypal in 2016.

Why won’t Paypal allow this ? Simple. There are numerous chargeback cases created by scammers who buy Bitcoin with Paypal from you and then claim they didn’t receive anything. This way they get to keep their money and their Bitcoins (here’s a short video illustrating this).

Post summary:

  1. Go to Virwox
  2. Deposit money to your account with Paypal
  3. Buy SLL on the SLL/USD exchange
  4. Buy Bitcoins with your newly purchased SLL on the SLL/BTC exchange
  5. Withdraw your Bitcoins

And now for a more detailed explanation and some additional options…

Buy Bitcoins with PayPal through Virwox

Pros: A reliable method that has been around for a long time.

Cons: High fees

Now since no exchange currently allows a way around the charge back issues of buying Bitcoins with Paypal we are going to have to go through VirWox – The Virtual World Exchange. We will use a virtual currency called SLL (Second Life Linden Dollars), This currency is used for one of the biggest virtual worlds today – Second Life.

After buying this currency with Paypal (which is acceptable) we will then trade it to Bitcoins. My guess is that Virwox is able to do this method since they are not directly selling you Bitcoins with Paypal but rather selling you SLL with Paypal which they can prove if you received (unlike Bitcoin since it’s anonymous in nature).

Things you should know about Virwox before we get started:

  • Because of chargeback risk Virwox is taking on themselves they are limiting the amount you can deposit initially through Paypal or a credit card, here are the exact limits according to their website from April 24th 2016.

Virwox fees

  • This process hold within it more transaction fees than usual. This may still be a valid solution since the soaring numbers of BTC compensate for this. It’s important for you to be aware of the different transaction fees.
  • VirWox is delaying new user transactions for up to 48 hours. This means that it can take you 2 days to complete this process (still way faster than using a wire transfer).
  • If you still don’t receive the Bitcoins after 48 hours (which is very unusual) you can contact Virwox at [email protected]

If you find yourself getting stuck at any point don’t hesitate to contact me through the contact form on the site.

1. Go to VirWox.

VirWox is an exchange of virtual currency, you can buy there Lindens, Bitcoins, and more. It has more than 400,000 registered users and is a Second Life Lindens authorized reseller.

2. Open a free account

Click on the “not registered yet”  on the top of the left sidebar to open up a new account as shown here: buy Bitcoin with paypal - open account

3. Fill out our personal details

Fill out your username and email address. Where it asks for “avatar name” just leave it at “No Avatar”,  it  doesn’t matter, since you’re not going to play Second Life. buy Bitcoin with Paypal - fill details

Continue filling out all of the personal details and click “register”.

4. Activate your account

Once you clicked “register” you will get an email confirmation with your password. Open the email, copy the password and log back into VirWox.

5. IMPORTANT!!! Change your password!

After clicking the confirmation link it is advised you change you password as shown below since you will be transferring money through this site.

buy Bitcoins with Paypal - change password Do not worry about the message saying “Your avatar connection has not been validated yet” – it is irrelevant.

6. Fund your account through PayPal

Click on deposit on the left side and choose PayPal Express. Fund the account with how many USD you’d like.
Fund account with Paypal

Note: From now on for each transaction you will make there will be a fee – make sure you are aware of the relevant deposit and withdrawal fees.

7. Buy SLL with USD

Go to Exchange->USD/SLL on the left side. You can also go to any other currency you’d like. Buy SLL (which mean Second Life Lindens) . We will later on exchange these SLL to Bitcoins.

USD/SLL exchange Bitcoin Note: If you haven’t made a deposit yet you will get the screen shown above requesting you to deposit before you buy SLL.

8. Buy BTC with SLL

Once you have SLL in your account, go to the BTC/SLL and buy Bitcoins with your SLL.

Buy Bitcoins with SSL

Important!!!
Sometimes a manual review will be required by VirWox after this step. This can take up to 48 hours but usually takes around 6 hours.

 

9. Withdraw your Bitcoins

Choose “Withdraw” on the left side and send the Bitcoins to your wallet.

How to withdraw Bitcoins

Will this method actually work ?

Probably yes. I’m saying probably because I have received a handful of emails from people who weren’t able to get their Bitcoins. having said that, from all of the people who didn’t get their coins I haven’t gotten one email stating their money wasn’t returned to them. So yes, the process is a bit irritating but I have been using this method since 2013 and it hasn’t failed me yet.

How much fees will be deducted from my deposit ?

This is probably the second most asked question I get. It’s important to understand that when you buy Bitcoins through Virwox you are actually conducting two transactions. USD to SLL and SLL to BTC. This means you’ll need to pay a fee for each of these transactions.

The problem is that Virwox’s fee structure is always changing that is why I advise to check each case in person before proceeding.  There is a pretty cool site which shows you the current BTC/USD rate after all of Virwox’s fees. I’m not sure how reliable the site is but you can check it out for yourself here.

Are there any other methods to buy Bitcoin with Paypal other than Virowx?

Yes. However Virwox has been around for the longest time and therefor is the most reliable. If you continue reading this post I will cover 4 more methods that you can use but each of them has its pros and cons.


Buy Bitcoins with Paypal through Local Bitcoins

Pros: Wide variety of sellers from around the world

Cons: High fees, chance of scam

At the time of writing this paragraph (April 2015) this is the only known way to buy Bitcoins with Paypal. If you’re still looking for additional ways you can take a look at LocalBitcoins and try to find sellers that perhaps will be willing to sell you Bitcoin with Paypal.

Local Bitcoins, unlike Virwox is a marketplace where buyers and sellers meet. If you use this option you’ll be dealing with an actual person which means that credibility also comes into play. The way you can use Local Bitcoins to buy Bitcoins with Paypal is by finding a person that is willing to sell them to you. But since the seller is taking a big risk (as I explained in the beginning of this post) the will usually charge a really big premium (most of the times this will be more expensive than Virwox). The upside is that you will usually get your Bitcoins faster.

1. Enter your search parameters

The first step will be to go to Local Bitcoins and enter how much you want to buy and from which country. Since Local Bitcoins was originally made for people to meet face to face there is no “worldwide” search which is a shame. This means that there is no way to see all of the people who are willing to sell you will Paypal worldwide other then going through each country one at a time. Local Bitcoins search

2. Choose your seller

On the next screen you’ll see a list of available sellers, you can now browse them one by one. Here are the things to take into account: seller profileFeedback score – Located under the seller’s name. It’s advised to conduct transactions only with high feedback sellers.

Trade limits – Each seller has a minimum / maximum amount of Bitcoins he’s willing to trade.

Payment window – How much time you have for paying the purchase and marking the payment done after you initiate a trade. It’s also super important to read the terms of trade for the specific seller located on the right side. Here’s an example:

terms of trade local bitcoins Some sellers will require you have an initial reputation in order to buy from them so they can avoid scams or fraud. This means that you will perhaps have to conduct some small transactions just to get reputation.

3. Complete the trade

Once you’ve found your seller just enter how much you will to buy and click on “Send trade request”. trade request
Keep in mind that it’s crucial to conduct all communications within Local Bitcoins and preferably use their Escrow services (which are triggered automatically for all online sales).  This method is faster the Virwox but it can take you a lot of time to gain enough reputation, find your seller and also the premiums are really high (around %30 and more…).


Buy Bitcoin with Paypal through Wirex

Pros: Medium fees

Cons: Requires a long time to complete (around 10 days)

Wirex is a company that supplies virtual and physical Bitcoin debit cards. Since it’s just like any other debit card you can useWirex’s card with your Paypal account. In order to buy Bitcoins with your Wirex debit card here’s what you’ll need to do:

1.Order a physical / virtual debit card from Wirex

Go to Wirex. Click on “request new card” and choose the type of card you want. It’s possible to buy Bitcoins with Paypal through both cards (physical and virtual).

ecoin request card

A Virtual card should cost around $3 and will be enough for this process.

2. Connect that debit card to your Paypal account and verify it

Inside your Paypal account, go to “Wallet” -> “Add a card” and add your newly acquired virtual Bitcoin credit card.

add paypal card

One the card is added you will need to verify it. In order to verify the card you’ll need to have a balance of at least $3 on it so that Paypal will be able to charge you. Once Paypal charges you, you will see a 4 digit code next to that transaction on your Wirex account. That 4 digit code in the verification pin for your card on Paypal.

4 digit paypal code

3. Deposit funds to your Paypal account

I’ll assume you know how to do that :)

4. Withdraw funds from your Paypal account to your Wirex account

Go to “Wallet” -> “Withdraw funds” and choose the “withdraw funds to your card” option.

Paypal withdraw

Make sure to choose your Wirex card. The withdrawal can take up to 7 days to appear in your Wirex account.

5. Buy Bitcoins with your funded Wirex debit card

Now that your Wirex card has funds in it, you can use them to buy Bitcoins.

buy bitcoins ecoin

The whole process can take some time as verifying your Wirex card with Paypal takes some times and withdrawing the funds can take up to 7 business days depending on where you live.


Buy Bitcoins with Paypal through Paxful

Pros: Wide variety of sellers from around the world

Cons: High exchange rate, chance of scam

Paxful is the smaller less known version of LocalBitcoins. It’s a peer to peer marketplace that allows you to buy Bitcoins with almost anything (e.g. Skype credits, Amazon gift cards). The process of buying Bitcoins at Paxful is pretty simple:

  1. Create an account
  2. Choose a payment method for buying and a desired amount
  3. Choose your seller – You can either choose manually or let Paxful decide who is the best seller for you.


Once the trade initiates you will be sent in to an online chat with the seller where you can finalize the deal. The seller’s Bitcoins will be sent into Escrow and once you mark that you’ve sent your payment they will be released into your account. Keep in mind that if you don’t finalize the deal within a certain timeframe (usually 30 minutes) the deal will be auto-cancelled.

The issue appears to be caused by the Paypal not supporting Visa cards other than issued by Bank Leumi in my country. From PP support: “as a result of a decision made by Visa, it’s no longer possible to withdraw money from PayPal to rechargeable Visa credit cards”.

Any clues on what are the risk indicators?

Zsofia Elek
Admin

Zsofia Elek

Hi Alex, VirWox indeed reserves the right to close your account if they consider it high risk. Probably this is because they have a high risk of fraud by selling Bitcoins via Paypal they are more cautious than other exchanges. Risk indicators can be for example if you are using a VPN.

Hello and great video. It might be just what I am looking for…I was wondering if once I buy bitcoins on VirWox will I am able to transfer the bitcoins to my wallet on Ethtrade.org? Just praying it will work…Any tips would be much appreciated. It is just I don’t want to trade the bitcoins on my own and want someone who knows what they are doing to handle that job. I am an American residing in the Philippines and it has been a challenge figuring something out…

Thanks in advance.

…you can always transfer your BTC to whichever wallet you want to … just hit the withdraw option on the VirWox site and enter the hex of your wallet and immediately it will be credited there … if you are new to VirWox, they will check your funds … like the first two times, but after I always transferred my BTC into another wallet and it got taken into account straight away … hope that helps … cheers … Jan.

you can also use Pay Pal’s line of credit to buy bitcoins, if you have one which is quite easy to get. Im trying XCoins right now using this method and its pending approval. Quite steep fees and I’ll believe it when i see it. Also, new users have a $150 limit first time so bit of a turn off

In regards to to Virwox, avoid at all costs

i tried them too, with PP’s line of credit. Well, 3 days later the transaction was cancelled for ridiculous reasons such as my personal info did not match their records which is garbage. i dotted every i and crossed every T, even doing that dumb selfie thing. On top of that, I could not a get any help from support…at all. It was truly infuriating. I wish you better luck

DO NOT USE VIRWOX, even if it works well for you for a while, eventually they will just shut down your account and their customer support will accuse you of being high-risk to them, openly claiming you’re some sort of a criminal even if you know you haven’t done anything wrong. Worst customer support EVER when you get in this type of trouble, they’ll only keep you a member as long as it suits them, once it doesn’t they will kick you out without reason or explanation. You’re lucky if you can get a refund once they delete your account.

A pretty informative page for what I was looking for. It really can be tricky to buy btc with paypal so thanks for writing this. I was reading through the paypal to btc guide on howtobuybitcoin which had three excellent sites mentioned (virwox is also there too). They say that it can be more expensive for larger amounts this way though. I guess it’s more convenient, but you pay extra for that!

hi dear,
I have tried to use Virwox for transferring from Paypal to BTC.
It worked well though fee is high.

But I am worrying about security my Paypal account since I heard Paypal will block accounts with BTC transactions.

Even if Virwox is not BTC service, Paypal could realize they are doing with BTC and ban my Paypal account?
I hope your clarification.
Thanks,

IMO, the guys from PayPal should have learnt the Bitcoin technology by now and hence should embrace the Bitcoin to some extent. The thing that gets in the way when buying bitcoin with PayPal is the thing called “chargeback.” Imagine there is huge potential of making money from transection fees IF PayPal itself acts as an escrew service in the “Buying-Bitcoin-with-PayPal” process.

Andreas
Guest
Member

PayPal has opened itself to “digital goods” over the past 6 months. This is evident if you review their User Agreement changes that were made, and the recently announced changes to come.

I’m not sure how much longer it’ll be until they have an official Bitcoin acceptance policy and procedure, but it seems to be moving in that direction. Their biggest concern I’d guess are credit card chargebacks, which they are basically powerless against.

Circle works perfectly for Paypal or debit/credit immediate purchases. Can’t recommend them highly enough. Stay away from Coinbase, too many limits/rules. They want you to wait 7 days for the same purchase, and even then its a crapshoot if it will go through. Terrible service too.

Thanks for this article Offir, I hate Paypal it has something to do with the currency in my country “The Rand ZAR” and the difficulty of funding Paypal with it. I have come accross a merchant however that only uses Paypal (why? it’s besides me) anyhow you don’t know of a way or service that would fund a Paypal account from BTC rather (ie. I add funds to Paypal account from Bitcoin Wallet)? Thanks for 99bitcoins it has become a valuable service to me. Al

Hey Al, thanks so much for the feedback!
Regarding your question, you may use the opposite process and sell your Bitcoins for Paypal credits. But look out for the fees, they are pretty high.

Hey Roxann, thanks for your comment. There’s no urging on Virwox. In the guide on this page we bring 3 different options including Local Bitcoins. I’ve heard of Paxful but haven’t tried it yet so I can’t review it. Hopefully I’ll get to adding this in the following week. Hope this answers your question.

Another option is to use Cryptonit exchange.
