It's according to how deep the well is to know if a pitcher pump is ok. They are hard to work up enough water if it's over 20' or so on the lift.
You can buy a electric pump around here for about $100 or less without the tank, and a pitcher pump is about $50 plus the cost to plumb it in, so you easily can end up with $60-$75 in a pitcher pump.
PVC pipe is fine for the pump of any kind but you'll need to build some sort of stand for the pitcher pump because the pvc is not strong enuf and will break off when you start using the pump.
