You should never ask to be paid twice or as a buyer pay twice for an item.

If she has no forwarding address set up to that one, I don't see what else you can do besides wait for funds to clear in refunding. Sorry OP, maybe she forwarded it and this is all going to smooth over easily!

I see your point. That just seems like the fastest way to me. The buyer would be protected for both transactions. So if OP didn't refund, the buyer could file a claim. And no one would have to wait several days for funds to clear.

I know when I buy something I want it now so I wouldn't want to wait the extra days for it to even ship. I wouldn't mind paying again when the money would be almost immediately returned. Now if the seller wanted me to pay again for something that had nothing to do with me then it would seem scammerish but I don't think so in this situation.

Maybe OP could just give both options to the buyer and let her decide which would be better.

I asked a mod, and they said it shouldn't be done that way. I do t know if there's a specific rule on it, though.

It really sucks that there are so many scammers out there now that things can't just be simple.
I hope that OP was able to find a solution that worked for them both.

Re: need paypal advice fast

Thanks for all your advice on this! Surprisingly, I sold something soon after posting this that the mama paid immediately for, so I had money in my account again. I had planned on just letting her know that she would have to wait for the refund to clear and then resend the payment. Luckily it worked out, but I'll probably be confirming addresses from now on!

Also, just wanted to note, if you were to not refund, instead send money to her, if you sent it regular she would get fees taken out. If you chose to send it as personal payment owed, I don't know that it would give you the coverage you need, since paypal doesn't cover those types of transactions since they're supposed to be used for gifts only.
