The good thing of Bitcoin as payment system is that you can receive money from all the world, wherever an Internet connection is available.
I have a debit card. It does exactly the same thing. Additionally, when identity theft occurs, I'm not liable for any payments. When a Bitcoin is stolen, it's nigh impossible
to get it back.
Credit Card / Debit Card / Paypal and many other services are available EVERYWHERE in the world wherever an Internet connection is available.
It isn't a problem of the seller how and why the customer is paying in Bitcoin, moreover if he is receiving dollars/euro.

No I'm not.
I didn't say that you receive instantly the payment, I said that Bitcoin are "converted" instantly, so you will get the euro/dollar accordly with the Bitcoin price at the time of the purchase.
Coinbase/Bitpay aren't two shady companies
You will have to sign a contract/agreement to them as you do with Paypal (example)
