    I would also suggest you to go with Escrow.

    Escrew is safer than PayPal. Awfully, you are dealing in online with an unknown guy.

    You can get fucked over with PayPal even if they extended the seller/buyer protection to digital goods/services too.
    You asked for the safest way, which is definitely escrow, not PayPal.

    I definitely wouldn't bother doing this with paypal. If they pay you with their paypal account, as opposed to a credit card, and they end up scamming someone with that paypal account, that could get your account temporarily suspended while paypal does their due diligence. Even a temporary suspension could be a huge pain for someone.

    PayPal is as unpredictable as Google. Don't use it if you want something that is save. I would anytime suggest a Bank Transfer over any payment service, so you are sure that you can keep your money regardless of what happen.
