What are some reliable methods to send/receive money?

Somebody I worked with on a phone app wants to pay me for the job. He can't use Paypal, and he wants to send the payment directly to my bank account. What are other secure and reliable alternatives? I'm thinking of asking for bitcoin, but is there any other way?
Update: He lives in a different country. He's paid me before with Paypal before they blocked his country
Update 2: Don't worry about scamming, I trust the guy to pay me like he's paid me before, but giving out my bank info isn't a good idea
Update 3: I told him to send me bitcoin. Thanks everyone
