To me:

  • "No lo pagues." = Don't pay for it. (Lo referring to the item that you were going to buy)
  • "No le pagues." = Don't pay him/her. (Le referring to the person who would be receiving the money)

But there could be nuances here that I'm glossing over.

Side question: Would you use lo or le with saludar? "Voy a saludarlo" or "Voy a saludarle"?
If you find something wrong with my Spanish, please correct it!
