Bitcoins can be sold at the exchange. The rate they are exchanged at is based on the market price at MtGox less a certain percentage for the fee. The sell trade occurs within 24 hours but the schedule shows withdrawals occurring just once a week.

Proceeds may be sent to a PayPal account or as a SEPA bank transfer.


This service was announced on April 02, 2012[1].

On May 30, 2012 the service discontinued accepting credit card after its merchant processing partner, eWire, severed the relationship citing pressure placed by the VISA / Mastercard "duopoly"[2].

On July 14, 2012 it was announced that the cash network CashU was now supported as a method for purchasing bitcoins[3].
