    If you are posting then PayPal goods and services is probably going to be what the buyer wants , and that’s fine if you know what you are doing alternatively a bank transfer but a lot of buyers won’t use them as they have no protection. if you are wanting buyer to collect then cash. 

    If posting remember that you need fully tracked and insured postage as you are responsible for loss or damage, however the buyer pays .

    Hi, sorry what do you mean re paypal goods and services is fine if you know what you are doing? Surely its just a case of getting their address and posting with tracking and compensation? 

    Does giving bank details out put me at any risk please?

    Thanks for your help.

    For PayPal goods and services remember to protect yourselves against chargebacks, so only send to address PayPal give you and ensure you retain POP and send within 7 days. 

    Bank details are fine, just remember to check money has arrived in your bank account, don’t fall for any dodgy emails pretending to be from your bank telling you the money is being held until item is sent.
