    +61 it is

    [11:31]
    Pickle Rick:
    ye
    i dont get why it says pay $60 tho

    [11:32]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    It's not saying pay 60 dollars, it's saying pay for the 60 dollars

    [11:32]
    Pickle Rick:
    wheere?

    [11:34]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    on my screen, I have the ability to either dispute the money or forward it to you, but when you send the keys I'm legally not allowed to dispute it, since our terms have been met, and if I was to do so, the money gets frozen and I have o send evidence to a Paypal customer service operator
    It's a system made to protect artists from getting their work stolen, or market sellers from paying for something but not recieving it

    [11:35]
    Pickle Rick:
    ye i think you sh0ould refund it

    [11:35]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    Why?
    I can only refund it if you trick me, and don't accept the trade offer

    [11:36]
    Pickle Rick:
    cause i feel like this is a scam

    [11:37]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    I get it, you're on the younger side at the given moment, puberty is just hitting you
    but then again, we're bot legally here and you do have my real name

    [11:38]
    Pickle Rick:
    your real name is jack?
    you know my name as well

    [11:38]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    And that's what makes it great
    Because you have that fail safe

    [11:38]

    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    Look, we're two customers here, trading for goods right? I have my credit card and bank account tied directly into my paypal account

    [11:40]
    Pickle Rick:
    wanna wait for an answer?
    and why does it say pay $60?

    [11:42]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    Weird Paypal layout, that's all

    [11:45]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    You got the bill, my side of it was 60 dollars right?

    [11:45]
    Pickle Rick:
    ino it says "pay $60
    so i think your charging me $60

    [11:46]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    Wouldn't go through if I were the one charging you

    [11:46]
    Pickle Rick:
    no cause i have to log in to pay

    [11:46]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    since you have no credit card
    what you need to do is accept the trade offer, and one you do, you get the money

    [11:47]
    Pickle Rick:
    wdym?
    so when i accept it would automaticly go through?

    [11:48]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    Yeah

    [11:48]
    Pickle Rick:
    really?

    [11:48]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    Yup, and cheeky old steam even takes royalties from me

    [11:48]
    Pickle Rick:
    ?

    [11:48]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    so you know it's legit
    jk

    [11:48]
    Pickle Rick:
    wdym?

    [11:49]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    meme
    abt steam taking royalties, anyways once you accept the money will reflect upon your balance
    You just gotta accept

    [11:51]
    Pickle Rick:
    how?

    [11:51]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    by accepting the trade

    [11:51]
    Pickle Rick:
    how would paypal know?

    [11:52]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    I set it up in the terms we talked about

    [11:53]
    Pickle Rick:
    where?
    how would paypak know that we finished trading?

    [11:54]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    The trade hash aka the exact moment the trade happened would get sent to them

    [11:54]
    Pickle Rick:
    ?
    wdym?

    [11:54]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    So when you accept the trade, steam takes the exact time the trade happened and stores it
    paypal accesses it and if the trade hash is there, it automatically does it's work

    [11:56]
    Pickle Rick:
    ?really?

    [11:56]
    Dr. Sneakman VGOBlocks.Com:
    Yup
    So just accept the trade offer :V

    [11:57]
