What would people consider as adequate precautions for allowing a
buyer to collect if they have paid via paypal? i.e. to prevent a
chargeback or claim that they have not received the goods. I have no
particular reason to mistrust this buyer, apart from them taking
longer than I expected to pay.

Don't accept PayPal full stop. Cash is the ONLY safe method for collection.
PayPal will not accept any kind of receipt or whatever, other than an online
tracking method. So, you've absolutely nothing protecting you against them
filing a chargeback or an INR.

Refund the PayPal payment, and insist on cash.

Get him to sign for the item when he collects it. And set up your
own website that provides "online tracking" as this seems to be the only
factor that they consider.

I suspect you aren't serious with that latter: PayPal have lists of accepted
online tracking.

Will this not incur paypal fees?
