Paypal isn't necessary, but it's nice :) You could always snailmail the seller money :)

Umm, just sign un for a heatware account and you'll be set :p Happy trading/selling/buying :)

Make you email address visible in your profile. Set up a heatware account. Read the For Sale/Trade rules closely.

Review the FAQ in FS/FT.
A Paypal account is good for most transactions.
Sign up for a Heatware account.
Be prepared to ship first (pay first) until you have your Heatware evals built up. If trading with someone that has very few Heatware evals then this can be negotiated.

Remeber, If the deal is too good to be true it probably is.

Make sure you read about those on the do no trade/deal with sticky.

Be patient and pack very well.

Usually you start by deciding to sell something or come across something you want to buy.
