Why is buying with PayPal or Credit Card so expensive? Why are other payment methods cheaper?
Amazingly, contrary to traditional currencies, Bitcoin allows you to control your money. Since most traditional transactions can be reversed, a transaction carried out using Bitcoins cannot be reversed. Which creates a risk for the Bitcoin seller since PayPal or a bank can take the money someone paid him out of his account even after he has sent the Bitcoins away. In order to protect against this risk, some traders keep a higher price for certain payment methods.
Our recommendation, in this case, would be to use a hard to reverse kind of payment method, for example, mobile payments, bank transfers or a Cash deposit. Browse all payment methods before buying a Bitcoin by selecting the option “all online offers” and choose the option which gets you the best price and is most convenient.
