My first time using paypal for a purchase that meeds to be mailed

I'm selling an item and they asked I used pay pal because it is secure. I got an email that the funds will be deposited into my acct once a travkimg number is provided to a paypal email address provided by email. Is this how pay pal works?

SCAM.

They encourage you to accept a direct Paypal payment and may ask you to send the item internationally.
No funds or activity of the transaction shows in your Paypal account and any emails may go into your junk/spam folders.

You will get/got a "fake" email that looks as though it is from paypal.....it isn't because they don't have a Paypal account and have no intention of paying you.
It will say the buyer has paid ...you won't have been paid.
They will tell you that the payment is released when you provide paypal with a tracking/shipping number......this won't happen.

Paypal NEVER tell you to send an item before the payment is showing in your paypal account.
Paypal do not tell you to send trackable, they advise it for selling protection but it is not compulsory.
Delete any emails and ignore the scammers.


Advice is voluntary.
Kudos / Solution appreciated.
