There was an offer, acceptance and consideration. There is a valid contract for sale. If you fail to deliver, you could be sued.

To find this answer, you would need to read the E-bay Terms of Service, rules, and any contract you signed on the site. You might need to have a lawyer help you with this.

Sorry. You accepted payment on the first offer. You need to honor that offer. Failure to do so could result in that person suing you for specific performance. I supect e-Bay would also remove you from your ability to do future business through them.
