    Request your buyer to make paypal payment as a "Gift" .. That way you wont lose money to paypal in commission, and the buyer wont have an option to pull a fast one about the goods you sent (like try and get paypal refund in dispute) as they wouldnt have paid for goods... ;-)

    But, if they're collecting then surely cash is the best way..
