    Paypal 5th Mar 18 at 4:01 PM
    First of all apologies in the wrong section.

    I have a few items I want to sell via Facebook. People have asked to pay through PayPal.
    Will I be charged for this? All items are under 5.

    Many thanks.

    Are they planning on collecting the item?

    Could this be a no proof of postage scam?

    I would suggest cash buyers only if it were me.

    Exactly. Why would you need to be using Paypal on Facebook? It's only used by scammers on there!!!!!!

    Sounds like the OP needs to wise-up on scams before attempting to sell there. Probably not the place I would start to sell tbh!
