It has been pointed out that many people are still asking for gift payments in their sales threads. As per the forum rules you cannot ask for gift/friends and family payments on this forum. Please factor fees in to your asking prices and amend your original post. We don't have many rules here, so please try and stick to the few there are. Thanks.

So, I'm a newb looking to sell my old collection on here (currently posted a bunch of loose figure stuff on the valuation board), and am just trying to get my head around the seller/buyer thing.

I get the whole 'no gift payment' thing unless both parties trust each other implicitly, but not entirely sure what the other options are.

Does anyone do the whole Paypal business account thing?
Or is cash on collection the way to go? Isn't collection a bit of a bugger if I'm in Sussex (which I am) and the buyer is in Glasgow, for example?

Assuming there's no one-size-fits-all reliable answer here.

You just do a normal Paypal transaction and you pay the fees. It's only a few percent, so just add that to the asking price.

As Weasel says. A buyer sees two options for payment in Paypal - Friends & Family and Goods & Services.
Goods & Services attract fees which is deducted at the receiving end so factor in around around 30p ish plus 4% to cover most of the small "loss" perceived.

Or absorb cost, etc. No business account required unless you plan to sell commercially.
