Just tell him to suck it up and register with PayPal. He can register a checking or savings account and draft payment directly from those accounts to you for free (unless his bank charges for electronic checks or fund transfers). This would be no cost to you as well. It really is the best way to go. you can use it at auctions, retail sites, even pay some bills online through them. Everyone should be registered with PP's free service--you never know when it may come in handy!
When I joined (a long time ago) they even offered a credit to the signee as well as to the referral source. I got a $5 instant credit for myself and my brother...hehe. Just use the referral links at the paypal site to invite him to join.
If it ain't broke don't try to fix it! But, hell if you can tweak that bastard just a little bit more....hehehe.
