I put online a clothing item a few days ago and this person immediately reacting to me and asking me to send an email to her.
She asked me all the costs and unusual info like my phone number to send me an invoice via Paypal.
Here is the email I just got, asking me to give a shipping number and email it to Paypal's email on gmail (???).
I feel it is just dodgy to be asked about this...my main question now is, how do I solve this? Do I just cancel it and ask to be paid in the right way? I don"t want any troubles with the buyer...

This is a scam.
Emails from PayPal will always address you by your first and last names or business name. If you're ever unsure of an email, don't click any links in the email. Go to the website directly and log in to see if you have any notices or transactions. If you don't see any transactions, its safe to say that you didn't receive any payments.
Here are PayPal links with details on scams and phishing.
