Fair Rents (Scotland) Bill or Artificial state manipulation of free market rent?10:34 AM, 6th November 2020

I could do with some advice regarding the below please.
First time landlord, and I’m advertising our BTL through an online agent and a High Street estate agent.
The online agents have been paid up front and the agent is on 8% commission.
I arranged a viewing through the online agent with an applicant a week ago, and he subsequently walked through the door with the High Street agent a few hours before the viewing organised via the online agent was scheduled.
Who has introduced the applicant to me?
Does introduction mean initial contact or face to face meeting?
Can I request the applicant to go through online agent?
I guess what I’m ultimately asking is; do I need to pay the 8% fee if this applicant offers and I accept?
