Most logical thing to do would be to actually ask the person what he intends to use your photo for. Remember that the specific usage of your photo will determine the price (i.e. the time rights, publishing type and amount, etc...).
Regarding to the payment method I would only look at that in the end, the standard is to pay using cheques but paypal and cash are sometimes used and some clients may ask for an invoice.

First, always make sure you know what your picture will be used for and how many copies. Based on that information you set a price and sell a license stating that (what they may use your image for). If the person who ordered the image wants to use it again for other purposes than stated in the first usagelicense he/she must then contact you again so you can make out a new license.

Thanks for the feedback, guys!
I have replied to the email asking for specifics of the use my photo will be put to, so I'll get back to you all on that. And thanks Interpaul, that's the site I was looking for.
So I should write up some sort of contract ("I hereby authorize the use of my photo of ZK-MIL by 'Southern Wings Ltd.,' for XX number of panflets/brochures/etc.," or something like that? ) and have them sign a copy and send it to me with the money?
