    I have never had this happen before but i listed a lot of tf classics (at a steal of a price too) figures on ebay. 2 people won the buy it now simultaneously and both payed instantly. I had no choice but to cancel the bider who was a few seconds later and accepted the first payer as the winner. The winner has a good rep so I know I'm safe there but has this happened to anyone before? I just thought it was strange and I hope I don't create bad blood or make an enemy of the person who's bid i had to cancel.

    What do you guys think?

    Well, you can't sell a single product to two people, right?

    Taking that into account, what you did (essentially giving priority to the 1st person) seems logical, so any grievances that the 2nd person has really shouldn't be directed your way.

    You did the right thing (assuming, of course, you refunded the second bidder's money :lol ).
