I wouldn't do PayPal, on the basis of customer service. PayPal is widely infamous for being nearly impossible to deal with. At the first hint of any fraudulent activity, they instantly suspend and freeze all your activity and assets, and it can take months of beating your head against a stone wall to get things resolved.

http://www.paypalsucks.com/ might be worth a glance. Yes, there's lots of "xxxsucks" sites out there, but this one seems to have a substantial quantity of material.

I use PayPal myself only for small purchases off Ebay, and haven't had any problems. But I've read way too many horror stories to trust them for anything more than that.
