You could say most people don't use seat belts, too, but that's an argument against stupidity, not the efficacy of the seat belt.
Personal payments also violate b&s rules.
When selling off eBay, I send an invoice to the buyer for goods. Happy for PayPal to take a few percent (less than eBay + PP fees) and I have some seller protections...if over $150 I also send signature required and insured.
B&S rules? What does that have to with trading via PM? As far as I can tell, using PayPal other than personal use does nothing to protect the seller.

Bro, how dare you break up all the talks about PP for asking a trade!!!
As long as you check the "Paying for goods or services" box and not the "Send money to friends or family" box the seller is totally at your mercy. PayPal and eBay always, 100% of the time, rule against the seller in an item dispute case. The most telling case is where a guy sold a hutch to a lady with "local pickup." She arrived, inspected the item, loaded it in her truck and took it home. In the process of unloading it at home one of the legs was broken. She demanded her money back from the seller. He refused as it was not his responsibility once she left his property with it. She filed an item not as described claim and was promptly refunded her money for something she received in perfect condition and broke after taking possession of it. The seller had to eat the cost and was left with a worthless broken item.
Thank God there are not more dishonest people in this world or eBay and PayPal would quickly collapse having no one willing to sell anything using their services.

Note, these are not pulled from NYC. You can thank the thrifts outside of Boston for these guys. I always make the rounds when visiting the folks. Always full of trad goodness.
