so, I'm selling a couple AIOs on the tp, and someone asks if i'll go a buck lees, I say sure, here is my pp addy(on the thread). Someone else sends me the full amount. What do I do? and what is your way to do this? Personally I would not ever PP someone $$ without talking to the person first. I emailed, or pmed both people, just waiting for responses.

I feel like i should refund the $$ so the original person can have it.

I'd give it to the first person that asked, just because that's what feels right to me.

Me too, I guess now I'm wondering if people often send $$ without makinf sure the item isn't gone already?

I think you're right to go with your 1st offer . . .it was very brave of someone to PP you without checking first, though!

I would give it to the first person, since she contacted you first. It seems the right thing to do. JMHO

I have to agree - I'd go with the first one based on the fact that she did contact you first and that the two of you had come to an acceptable aggreement. As far as the second person goes, I would refund the paypal and send a pm/email explaining that you had already worked out a "deal" of sorts with another buyer. I'm sure that she will understand. I also agree that that was a pretty bold move to go ahead and paypal the money without contacting you first - if for no other reason than to at least confirm that they were still available??:

I always go with the first to respond.
I find it strange that someone would send payment before even checking to make sure the item is still available.:

Definitely go with the first person. When you refund through PP leave a note in the comments as to why you're refunding and you're done!

Definitely go with the first person, and refund the second.

Being right is not always fair, but being fair is always right

Me either, but in my defense in her profile it says OR, and the paypal address is a different state. :LOL
