First time user as a seller using Pay Pal to receive money

Hi, 

I've never sold anything using Pay Pal as the portal to receive payment. I have a potential buyer for my item asking for my Pay Pal account details but I'm unsure how to complete the transaction without being scammed.

What are the secure steps I should take please?

Please read:

How do I create and send an invoice or payment request?


Remenber:

- “pending” status invoices/money requests are unpaid

- always check your PayPal account for a record of received payment before shipping

- even if a payment is subject to PayPal hold, you still see the record of payment in your account

- providing tracking info is optional and via the transaction record itself in PayPal account, not by email.

- PayPal payment confirmation emails can be spoofed so always log on to check on payments

- only sellers send invoices and money requests, not buyers

- PayPal does not ask you to pay a third party payment or shipping agent, or buy and reveal codes to gift cards


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
