What method of payment does everyone use?

Its been a long time since ive been in the buying ands selling of things on a forum. With that said, what is everyones preferred payment methods for selling things online. Also what does everyone use as a general rule when being a seller? Do you get full payment then ship, partial payment then ship? With me selling my acessport and the amount I am selling for, it made me wonder what is considered the normal now a days.

PayPal or cash in person. Prompt and tracked Shipment upon payment only. The only exceptions were deposits for larger items (over $1000) and then still wait for full payment before shipment.

Paypal/cash. Only real secure way of payment to protect the buyer from a not so trust worthy person.

I just got done using google wallet. I have sent money on it before to a friend but never for a transaction. It transferred instantly, and went into my bank account instantly. Best part was no fees. For piece of mind on both the buyer and seller we did a 75% down 25% after proof of shipping. Made us both feel better.

Obviously PayPal (NOT Friends & Family, as this offers zero protection) is a very popular way to do transactions online because of their buyer protection.

I will add that there is also benefit to using a credit card when you pay via PayPal. I recently purchased something via this forum that turned out to be partially broken. PayPal dispute was awarded to me but the only option required eating shipping costs for a 50lb package. I got my credit card company to continue the negotiation with PayPal and the CC company ended up getting me the refund I desired.

Paypal has the best exposure and protection for now.
It will probably change soon with all the new competitors and technology.
