Selling on FB marketplace - ask for cash or bank transfer?

Posted 12th Dec 2019
I want to sell my Iphone X - it's in great condition and worth more via a private sale than the ripoff prices that CEX etc... will pay to buy it and eBay just seems a recipe for disaster with paypal and phones. I live in a small town so no issues with advertising on FB marketplace and having someone come round BUT...what's the safest way of being paid? Bank transfer via online bank whilst they are there or cash? If cash, is there a big risk of fake notes and how best to guard against this? I've not sold something worth hundreds of pounds before like that.
