You can tell them you accept PayPal only as "Friends&Family' in that way there is no protection and they can't claim the item never arrived, on top of that you do not get charged with any commision from PayPal.   You can post the item insured and charge them for the posting.


That's the normal procedure in Kleinanzeigen, I have used it many times as a buyer and a seller.   Of course there is some level of risk involved but I am willing to take my chances, except for something really expensive.
