Being send physical money.

I'm slowly having regrets for allowing a customer send a physical payment for a purchase they made to me. They couldn't get paypal to work so they asked for my address and I gave it to them.

Should I be worried?
Concerned?

Did I screw up big time?

I'm a newer artist that is still learning the way of business.

EDIT AND MORE INFO

I have not received the money yet sadly.
Do not tell me how dumb I am. I am learning and this mistake is going to teach me a lesson.
I went about this with Furbuy. And I was selling an adopted character that I did not use.
I know I could have gone to the seller and give them back to character, but I saw others use Furbuy and I wanted to try it out.

The seller bought the character at full price that I originally paid for and they left a comment on the product page asking about giving physical money for me. I went ahead and contacted the buyer and gave them my address to send the money to. I did give them the full res image sadly..

I just contacted them telling them I never got my money and they can't use the character.
i don't know what to do if they ignore me on that

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON'T BASH ME FOR MY STUPIDITY. I LEARNED THAT THIS WAS A TERRIBLE MISTAKE AND I WILL NEVER DO THIS AGAIN. AND IF YOU WANT TO REPORT ME AND MAKE ME AN UNTRUSTED BUYER/SELLER, I UNDERSTAND.
