Always pay by paypal as buying goods, if they want you to send family and friends don't. Just add the fees to what you pay so that they get the asking price ( you can google the fees 3% +20p I think) Then you have some comeback through paypal. Anybody who won't accept paypal goods purchase with you paying the fees is not worth trusting.
