Yeah I sent funds (asking price) within 20 mins and he told me sorry sold because someone offered him a higher price.

Couldn't find anything through search but I was wondering what other member's thoughts were, pretty sure most are aligned with yours

If you waited too long and someone sent the money before you regardless of the price, it is what it is. First to pay gets the item. 


This is the correct response

If you sent him an offer, then he said yes, deal, then you sent the money then I agree 100%. What I can't tell from your comments is whether the "he said yes" part occurred. Did you send a PM, then send the money, then have him come back and say sorry it was sold to someone else? How do you know you were first?

Agree, need more details.  Another scenario- did the agreement occur and then funds weren't sent for some time?  Too many flaky buyers to wait for funds when someone else is ready to send the cash.

Requested paypal for item. Waited ~8 mins. Went to shower. Came out saw the messages. Sent funds within 5 mins of "still want it" and few minutes later received the last messages. 

 

I've never flaked as a buyer and have always quickly sent payment over but I'm definitely at fault here for not being more proactive.  I assumed generally 15-30mins might be a fair time to allow buyer to pay? And let others know they are next in line? I was the beneficiary of "next in line before".

So you asked for paypal, and then you paid within about 30 to 45 min?  If so, then that does suck.  I could see the buyer getting a little nervous, but then when he reached back out you sent payment within 5 min.  Seems his motivation was mostly the increased offer.

A bit inconclusive from the info we have. From your chain, it "seems" like someone contacted him with another offer while he was still waiting for your payment. This is a bit of a gray area, but I am of the opinion that the item goes to the first person to pay (particularly when he already had to message you again after sending the PayPal info to see if you were still interested). 

 

If he did accept payment and then canceled in favor of a better offer that came after your payment, that is poor form. Just too hard to say from this info. You could invite seller here to comment or just move on (since there isn't much to be done anyways). Better luck with the next purchase.

Hard to know without hearing from the sellers POV.

I get that we are in a first to pay gets the item due to a lot of tire kickers. However I also believe that if the seller is not able to respond immediately with PayPal info, the buyer should receive at the very least the same amount of time to pay. If the buyer requests info and has to wait by his phone or computer for 30 minutes then the seller should give some sort of grace period. 

If you as the seller can not respond immediately do not expect the buyer to.   As a buyer, if you request info and end up having to be away from your computer or phone, a simple message stating that will end some of this crap as well.

As a seller and running into similar scenarios if a buyer says he wants I send him Pp info. Not always you get funds immediately but if another person wants i’ll Message the first buyer immediately ask if still interested cause someone else next is in line and I inform the second person of the situation he is next and I’ve just messaged first guy back an if no answer it’s yours. If I receive the second guys funds first he gets it

I feel for the OP.  He had an agreement on a purchase price but took 30 mins to send over funds.  I understand the "first to pay gets it" rule, but when there's a deal in place, 30 mins isn't very long.  Especially when the buyer (OP) appears to have a great feedback rating, I'd have confidence the buyer (OP) is sending payment as soon as he can.  

If I was selling and the OP has not sent me payment in an hour, I'd message back that I'd be moving on to the next person in line in 30 mins.  Maybe I'm more generous with time than others, but I'd like to think most (not all) members of golfwrx are going to do the right thing.
