Lost gold on buyout on normal AH

I wanted to buyout some Subtle Essence on the normal AH and I got an error (not sure what error it was). The AH failed to "bid" on the item, when I bought it out, and it took my gold and didn't give me the item.

That is all I know. Thanks.

Use the auction house with caution and I would avoid using the real money auction house entirely when it opens. After much correspondece with Blizzard support I finally got what I was looking for, this is from their terms of use section 15 #ii "BLIZZARD EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY (Under ii: (ii) THAT ANY AUCTION HOUSE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE;)" Basically if the auction house errors out, times out, or has a bug/glitch, blizzard will not be held responsible for ANY re-imbursements. Saying that about gold or items in a game is one thing, but saying that about real money transactions is something entirely different. Just imagine if Paypal had such a disclaimer, they would loose all their customers overnight.For more information about this see my bug report post at http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5271781623

I was trying to buy some 1-handed crossbows for my demon hunter a while ago, when i clicked in bid i bidded 9170g, i only had 11,256 gold, when i canceled my bid my gold returned and somehow more gold was given to me, now i have 12,306g, i dont know how you lost gold i get to have more gold, they really need to fix the AH

I just lost 50k gold! I clicked bid by mistake instead of buyout and when i clicked buyout i lost my bid amount! I was expecting it to come through in the 'completed' tab but no.

This is very disappointing, surely if the WOW AH can work in-game properly for many years Blizzard should be able to make the Diablo one work too! Why even release it if its bugged? This is not up to their usual standard of game quality on release.

Some parts of this game are so polished and nice yet others are broken and unfinished, whats going on Blizz?
