    I would use BACS (Bank transfer). Just give him your bank details (sort code, a/c no. the name that the account is in and the name of the bank) and he can arrange a free transfer of money from his account to yours. I much prefer this way of receiving money as it's free

    Hi Olivia, thank you for your help.
    I did think about a bank transfer, but thought that perhaps a buyer without P'pal might not find it easy and hoped that there might be another way. However, will suggest this to buyer and see what they think.
    All the best,
    Marie.

    Assuming that the buyer has a credit card, s/he can pay through Paypal without having a Paypal account. They will, however, need to register if they are attempting to pay by bank draft, installments, etc.

    Send an invoice via Paypal to your customer (to their email) and they should be able to pay with CC or DC without having to sign up.

    Thank you AmeriCrafts & Rocks2Dust - I had no idea that I could do that (in the words of Michael Caine: 'not a lot of people know that') - will now know what to do in the future!
    Thank you both so much,
    Marie.

    It would depend on the banking system in your country. In the USA bank transfers are not a common method of payment and are quite expensive. Of course, accepting credit cards would require one's own merchant agreement with the card companies if you don't use a payment processing agent sch as PayPal.
