I've used all of the available payment methods except personal checks. I have a PayPal business account, so I use PayPal invoicing for larger or advanced reservation. I also use PayPal friends and family for repeat guests or lower point cost reservations. Zelle is wonderful for transactions under 1K (which are rare) as well as Venmo. Zelle and Venmo are relatively new payment methods but allow immediate transfer with NO costs and only charge a small fee of .25-.35 cents to transfer to your own account. I used to ONLY use PayPal.

I'm a little less skeptical of payment methods of any kind. What I find most important is having a solid contract.

I only accept personal checks now, heard to many stories of renters asking Paypal for refunds after they have taken the vacation and Paypal siding with the renter. Plus, it is against Paypal rules!

There are brokers that say use Friends and Family, its not a scam. I dont take PayPal once I found out (here) that it is against the rules. Business accounts are different. PayPal renters thought it gave them security. It is a false sense of security even if paying via regular PayPal vs friends and family. They do not get involved in real estate transactions disputes since you are not suppose to being using it for that.
