It's sad that Paypal haven't expanded fast enough to suit everyone yet. It is the safest and by far the easiest way to recieve funds.
However, I thought it might be helpful to suggest the next best alternatives: Credit Card and Cashiers checks and Money orders.
Credit cards are very safe, however it can take quite a while, and be very costly, to set up a merchant account.
Cashiers checks and money orders are also reasonably secure because payment is traceable to a particular mailing address. Proof of payment is also provided.
If you are using eBay, then cashiers checks and money orders are covered for up to $200 under the eBay standard Purchase Protection Program (minus $25 for processing costs).
Most banks also offer a stop payment service if problems arise before the check is cashed. Some money order services may have the option of stopping the payment if problems arrive before the payment is cashed.
The two main problems with Cashiers checks and money orders are (1) the delay while the money clears - usually 7 working days. (2) Payment is almost impossible to recover if you happen to get a counterfeit money order.
Hope this helps :)
