When I use Paypal to accept payment, I generate an invoice out of Paypal. I don't ask for the paypal ID, name or phone number. I do need an email to send it. If the email/account is not a registered/verified Paypal user I would be very hesitant to complete the transaction.

Not knowing enough to be afraid... (I know more than I did, but I did it anyway!)

I have used paypal for many small transactions under $500 without a problem. I also sold my Bambi in under 24 hours and accepted a $3000 deposit to hold the trailer until the buyer could make the trip to pick it up. They were the a serious buyer and made the move to reserve it.

However, I do not know if I would try to make the whole transaction through paypal.That is when bank transfers are the best source.

I use paypal all the time but never send your personal information to anyone you did not initiate the transaction for.

Its not very safe to take large payments thru paypal (or any for that matter).
If the buyer uses paypal,picks up the trailer,then goes to paypal and says he never received the trailer,paypal will give him the $$ back unless you have a "tracking #" to prove the trailer was delivered.
Cash or wire transfer is the safest.

Cash is king for me ,even a cashiers check can be a phony. Whenever possible the transaction takes place in a bank as an extra precaution and I will even check new large bills with a counterfit pen like most merchants use before accepting them.
