For the buyer, there is no problem with paying with cash if you are collecting, as long as you can check or test the item(s) before paying.
The problem is with expensive items and you are a seller. How do you prove that the buyer collected the item(s). And PayPal protection for the seller only applies if the item is sent to the address registered on their account.
For me, If I am collecting, I normally ask, as payment by cash is often the most convenient for me and the seller. I've not sold anything where the buyer collected (yet).Mark
