What are safer (for seller) alternatives to PayPal?

I always read that PayPal is extremely buyer friendly, and almost always favors the buyer. Many years ago someone charged back a purchase for a few hundred dollars and it was a total loss.

Now I’m about to sell something (100% legal, yet against PayPal’s rules which would disqualify the trade from g&s protections anyway) for $1,800 and don’t want to get ripped off.

What are some safer alternatives to PayPal? Western Union is always an option, but I feel as though so many scammers use that method that it would make me look like one.
