starstarstarstarstar The worst exchange I ever had. Buying bitcoin with PayPal took me over 48h (until the beginning of the transaction) + 30% fees in total. The bitcoins were sent with low transaction fee, so this will take a while.
Very very bad.

starstarstarstarstar I will give them two stars. The reason why I won't give them one star is because I actually liked their interface, and I admit their system made it possible for me to actually purchase a small amount of bitcoin through a PayPal account! As a US citizen (apparently), my options are generally limited to actually buy crypto currencies. Companies like CoinMama, Coinbase, etc. require lengthy and somewhat difficult verification processes - I can't tell you how many times over the last week I find myself holding some document up to the computer camera, etc. So it was refreshing to actually be able to purchase bitcoin through a paypal account. And I didn't mind their interface. Having some trading experience, it was relatively easy for me to buy SLL's, and sell them for bitcoin. Hooray!
UNTIL THEY CLOSED MY ACCOUNT FOR NO REASON WHATSOEVER! Hence, the two stars. So for about two days I actually owned BitCoin. Wow. And then came two $99 refunds and a message saying - sorry, we are refunding your money and closing your account. Just like that. No explanation - and no interest in seeking any kind of verification. Incredibly frustrating. I wrote to them - I don't really expect anything back, but if it's possible to do so, and they make it right, I'll update this or add another. Otherwise ... be prepared to get your account shut down for absolutely no reason whatsoever.

starstarstarstarstar bought 30 euros of bitcoins got less than 20, this fees are borderline scam, stay away...
And the transaction took 30 hours...

starstarstarstarstar Accused me of threatening them.
I let them know that I would be issuing a PayPal dispute because they held my money and wouldn't let me withdraw it.
They closed my account as "high risk". The obviously smart move for them since PayPal disputes would ruin their reputation.

starstarstarstarstar Site works like a charm - been using this service since 2011. Fees might be a bit higher than other sites BUT to turn your bitcoins into real cash they won't ask for any identifications: no passports, drivers licenses, no phone or utility bills to be sent in.
There's an initial waiting period, but it's only AFTER you exchange to USD or EURO, so those are disconnected from any BTC price fluctuations. GREAT way to get my bitcoins out!
