It is possible!

This easy, step-by-step guide is going to show you, pretty much, how to buy bitcoins with PayPal instantly.

You’ll have to follow these simple steps:

  1. Create an account on VirWoX – which stands for the Virtual World Exchange.
  2. Fund your newly created account with PayPal in USD or Euro.
  3. Trade your USD or Euro for SLL (another currency on VirWoX).
  4. Once you have SLL, you can trade SLL for bitcoin.
  5. Withdrawal your bitcoins!

This process will be explained in more detail in few seconds. But, before you go on, know that this process will cost you about 10% in fees:

  • 3.9% on each trade of SLL (one trade of EUR or USD for SLL, then trading the SLL for BTC)
  • Your PayPal deposit also comes with a 2% fee.
