Nice trolling

I've only done this for very small amounts but I've sold bitcoin on eBay for more than market value even after fees.

bitstamp.com is my personal favorite for exchanges

It will take you some time to setup and validate the account, don't expect things to be instant.

localbitcoins.com?

Why would you get "lowballed" by an exchange? That is basically the marketplace.

There's an artisanal farmer's market weekly near where I live. You should set up a stall, tell a good story about how you mined it, and charge 3x the otherwise going rate.

Coinbase. You don't get exactly the current rate, but close enough.

I agree Coinbase is the best choice if your looking to liquidate your BTC. Actually at the time of writing I am seeing $720 @Coinbase and $715 @CoinMarketCap so there is always the chance to get a better rate.

H&B seconded

This is a terrible idea. You have no recourse if they claim it was never delivered and no way to get those bitcoins back. Use coinbase.

Not being particularly familiar with bitcoin, why isn't this an obvious arbitrage opportunity?

coinbase is the most reliable.

Paypal shut down my account for selling bitcoin on eBay.  I overlooked it being against their policy.  Everyone else seemed to be doing it so I thought it was okay.

Friction between exchanges. You'd end up with all btc at one exchange and all USD at another and it would take awhile to get back to "balance."
