It sounds like you are the one sending in this case? I wouldn't use PayPal at all to send to someone: cash on the glass.
I've offered to hold machines with a small PayPal deposit, which is refunded on pickup of the game and the price is then paid in full in cash.
Too many bad experiences, both personal and anticdotal to let a middleman notorious for seemingly random dispute decisions hold my money. I work for a bank and while Venmo is "safer" than PayPal as its going P2P and much less subject to a charge back, you're still giving your bank account info to a third party, so it's one more point of potential identity theft and account compromise.
I treat all these services like a casnio: cool and easy, but only take what you're willing to lose in the long run.
