If there is no address to send an item to and you were not charged a fee to accept the payment then it would be friends/family BUT if they sent using tha to option be careful .....


Its against Paypal rules to accept a family / friends payment for selling goods and you risk your Paypal account being limited if you do so.


A buyer would not be able to open a Paypal dispute for non-receipt of item OR item not as described as they would have no Paypal buyer protection.


However they can still open a dispute for an unauthorised transaction OR do a chargeback (via their card issuer) and you may well lose as you would have no Paypal seller protection.
