I'm navigating through BitCoin markets and I only found one site that accepts PayPal. But it is 62% overpriced. Where can I find other sites?

What do you mean by 62% overpriced? –  DuckMaestro May 27 '11 at 17:12
@DuckMaestro there was a transaction that raised the price of the BitCoins 62% above MtGox listed price. Later price returned to normal. But the same site charges over 7% for buying Bitcoins with USD. I think I can find better fees. –  Jader Dias May 27 '11 at 17:21

Unfortunately, CoinPal used to be the way to go until PayPal shut him down. Now, the only ways I found to get BitCoins from PayPal are:

  1. BitCoinMarket: Requires a certain level of reputation before you can use PayPal.
  2. ExchangeZone->LibertyReserve->MtGox: Confusing, round-about setup and you need to have your account on ExchangeZone verified before you can use PayPal (and they take their time with the verification process).
  3. BitMarket.eu: Easiest so far, just have to get your account verified with something like an eBay history or something like that that shows you're not a dirt-bag. No fees that I've seen yet. Verification is fast and easy. This is how I got my last batch of coins.
