Obviously if you are American or you live somewhere where you have the opportunity to just buy a Visa (or Mastercard) gift card in a store for cash: you can't go better than that. But I don't have that opportunity around my country.
So how would you pay someone (not a big amount) with credit card or Paypal if these are the only payments accepted by the merchant and you simply want to stay anonymous?
If I understand correctly, the hefty fees are if you want to exchange credit card or Paypal to bitcoin because they are reversible payments but for the other way around (bitcoin to credit card or Paypal) there shouldn't be extra fees, correct?
Is Bitcoin-OTC the place to go? What are best practices for this procedure? Is there a newbie-friendly non-techie guide to Bitcoin-OTC?
Is there such a thing as a truly legitimate no-name reloadable Visa/Mastercard or only the once-loadable gift cards are available?
