I sold a piece of electronics equipment on eBay for $130. The winning bidder, who has been a registered user of eBay since 2011, has a feedback rating of 1. The buyer promptly paid via Paypal. I dont see any indication that the buyer's shipping address is PayPal confirmed. eBay says I'm eligible for 'seller protection'. Should I ship it?

I'm concerned about getting ripped off. I know that every eBay user has to start *somewhere* in terms of raising their feedback but I'm a little wary of shipping the product out only to have the recipient claim they never received it and ask for a refund. A user since 2011 with a feedback of 1 smells like a hijacked account to me.
For what its worth, I plan on shipping via FedEx.
According to PayPal I'm eligible for 'seller protection' but don't really know what that means.
How should I handle the situation
