I noticed this question was posted a long time ago and perhaps things have changed so I took the liberty to dig in again and also aggregate most of the answers given here and here’s what I found:
It’s indeed impossible to buy Bitcoins with Paypal DIRECTLY even today and it's mainly because of Paypal’s TOS (Section 3.7 here) and the issues of chargeback.
Well, all transaction between Bitcoin addresses are stored forever, and so are fully traceable. What this means in your case is indeed that the credit card company can trace the coins you bought from them.
However, there are a few things to note.
Bitcoin addresses don't have a name assigned. F.e. Bitstamp will not know that the Bitcoins are coming from the ...
Bitocin and Litecoin have the same problems when trying to buy them with funding methods that allow chargeback.This is mainly because of Paypal’s TOS (Section 3.7 here) and the fact that your can't chargeback Liteocin since it is considered as cash.
Having said that there are still a few ways you can buy Litecoin with Paypal or a credit card.
Use VirWox to ...
I have a couple of friendswho want to purchase bitcoin, I would buy the bitcoins for everyone, that is why I have all of their card and personal info. I wanted to use a single wallet (mine) and then transfer the funds to each of my friends preferred wallets
Can I personally be traced?
First off, service recommendations are off-topic on this site, for more ...
The best way to do it is in person, with cash. Most other methods are traceable. Provided you don't live in the middle of nowhere, it's pretty easy to find at least someone nearby who's willing to buy, and if you're serious about anonymity that extra travel distance is probably a minor issue.
This problem is not solvable unless you want to place yourself at great personal risk. The trouble is that bitcoin transfers are inherently non-reversible, meaning that once you've transfered bitcoins there is absolutely nothing you can do to guarantee the return of those bitcoins. Credit cards however are highly reversible and most banks reserve the right ...
If you live in the states the only service that comes close to this would be
https://www.xmlgold.eu/ - you can even order a pre-paid credit card that you are able to top up with bitcoins.
https://www.okpay.com/en/index.html - Okpay used to offer the same service but due to regulatory reasons they have ceased offering thier services to US citizens.
Bitcoin is perfectly transparent. Privacy relies on the steps you take to protect your identity.
Things you can do to make a tracing harder:
Use a VPN or multiple VPN.
Use Proxy or multiple Proxy.
Use Tor (Multiple Tor instances can lead to loops, better avoid that).
Take care to not use the same virtual identity twice or more.
I have used xapo. The card works great. There is a Bitcoin wallet app where you can store bitcoins. The debit card just spends what you have in your wallet.
Bitstamp which is an exchange for buying coins also provide debit cards. I haven't used the card but bitstamp is a well known reputable exchange.
Is it possible to get that address's full transaction history (send/receive addresses and amount)
Yes, all that information is in the public blockchain.
type the address into any blockchain explorer
if the owner bought bit coins using a credit card will I be able to see that and possibly the card number
No. That information is not public. It isn't really ...
There's a wiki page about buying Bitcoins with a credit card. It seems the ideal options for you would be Brawker or MeetPays. But whatever method you decide to use, don't forget that Bitcoin is not anonymous (by default), that's a common myth.
talk has been appearing lately of PayPal considering to accept Bitcoin. That would give you a somewhat direct interchange between the "two worlds" though at rather considerable cost (PayPal commissions, their outrageous bid/ask spreads, plus fixed base-fee)...
there are many card provider services. Wirex is one of the popular bitcoin debit card provider. I found this article with list of best bitcoin debit card providers
There are exchanges inbuilt within the wallets to convert cryptos into eachonther as well as they support crypto to fiat exchange.
I'm using this one
Low fees, they accept BTC, BCH, ETH, LTC and BTG
Also, they have very cool app for iOS & Android
It's for early adopters and those with a large percentage of their wealth in bitcoin. Since bitcoin isn't widely accepted at merchants these people use debit cards tied to bitcoin to spend their hoarded coins. It really doesn't make sense for a newcomer. In fact bitcoin rarely makes sense for newcomers as a payment method.
cant think of a direct way.
merchant CC service
have them direct deposit to https://www.bitwage.com/
i doubt the connection will work since most merchant accounts will want to be able to pull funds from a bank in the event of a charge back. but you merchant acct may decide to hold on to funds to make up for the loss.
might be better to get your customer ...
It really depends from country to country and card companies:
Countries are enforcing regulations on financial institutions: KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML (Anti Money Laundering) - which when applied to disposable cards make them impossible to use in the same way you can't use them to transfer money to anyone's personal account
Second issue is fraud and ...
There are two basic ways they work:
1) "Push" credit cards such as BitPay: With a "push" credit card, you push bitcoins to the credit card. When you do so, they are converted to local currency (typically dollars) and added to the balance available on your card. Payments draw from your dollar balance, not your bitcoins directly.
2) "Pull" credit cards such ...
Another option is to use cash to buy a pre-paid Visa (or MasterCard or American Express) card from a supermarket or convenience store. Then, create an account with an online exchange, and use the prepaid card to fund the account, then use the funds to buy bitcoins. To be sure to cover your tracks, use Tails/TOR when connecting to the online exchange.
A bitcoin ATM. When it asks if you have a wallet, answer negatively to get a paper wallet printed for you. Then load the paper wallet and walk away. After that transaction is confirmed, sweep the paper wallet funds into your own personal wallet. As someone else noted, this is not the cheapest way to do things, but it is safer than meeting someone with cash.
I agree with @nuggetbram, in person is the most practical way.
An alternative is buying from a BTC ATM, for cash. Those tend to charge very high fees, though, and would limit the amount you can buy per transaction (there should be no problem splitting to multiple transactions, though, as each is independently anonymous).
Due to strict anti money ...
There is not a single available solution to go to a general VISA/MC/AMEX card in the US today. Money Transmitter laws (and a host of other regulations) make this a very difficult proposition at the moment.
Some other countries don't have the same issues today, like Canada http://paymentweek.com/2013-11-4-canada-introduces-bitcoin-debit-card-services-238461/ ...
Western union online money in minutes. The client pays western union with their credit card, the client send you the mtcn, you pick up the funds. Pretty Much Irreversible.
Have you looked in to Green Dot Money Pak?
While not technically for payment processing, it is possible to send these to a merchant and they are non-refundable. FYI they are tracked by ...
