    For example: I'm selling something (virtual good) online and I want to get paid in bitcoins. How can the buyer pay me? What is the safest site and why does every site say: "By buying you agree that the given Bitcoin address is yours."

    I don't have enough posts to submit a link... go to blockchain site and click on API then click on receive payments... You have to know at least the basic of PHP coding language to do this. This is what u need. No man in the middle or others stuffs... The blockchain will give you a generated address for each invoice on your website, thent will forward the coins to your wallet after the user will send the btcs. Hope this helps.

    for 3 payments give your Bitcoin wallet ID to your clients and tell them to send you payment on that ID, nothing more simple and easy then this

    for 3 payments? u can generate 3 different address for each "client/customer/whatever"... I was thinking you have more to sell... U can do this directly from your wallet.

    I want the buyer to be able to pay with their bank account or paypal or something. Then the paid money will be converted to bitcoin and be send to my address. Assume the buyer doesn't have a bitcoin wallet!

    Coinbase is what you're after. They can pay in fiat and you'll receive BTC, or vice versa.

    How can people pay me in Bitcoin without them owning a bitcoin wallet? I signed up but this options nowhere to be found.

    Edit: I found it but it asks for all your information - business name, and even your TAX id.

    That doesn't make any sense. If they don't have a bitcoin wallet, they don't have bitcoins to pay you with.

    They can pay you in USD and you can choose to receive BTC or the other way around.

    Yeah but how can they pay in USD? For example they pay USD through their bank to get the bitcoins into my wallet. (;It's kinda like they are buying bitcoins for me;)

    You can sign up on Coinbase, they have specific merchant tools (i.e. Payment Buttons). It's pretty cool, you can customize your button and the customer will be able to pay through BTC (or a different cryptocurrency). I've done this in the past and it works well.

    There are number of exchanges doing the transactions, check for the fees, as they fluctuate allot, from exchange to exchange and time to time.

    Blockonomics.co has a very good invoicing facility where you can use your address to create invoice without login
