The money is a Scuba question.
I'll likely send mine in advance as groceries need to be purchased ahead of time and I don't feel like messing with cash in the woods anyway.
I like PayPal for lots of reasons. I especially like the service it provides in buying or selling gear and the protection it provides are well worth the small fees. I'm not worried about my protection on this transaction so I plan to send it to him as a "Send money to friends or family" option so he gets the full amount. When I send money that way, there is not a cost to him and if I use my credit card instead of my bank or PayPal balance, I pay the fee.
(I am a strong believer in paying for services rendered so this is not an end around to avoid fees, it simply seems to me like that is the purpose for which this option was designed.)
I'm not saying that's the way to do it, just how I plan to unless directed otherwise.
