Making AH purchases from WoW API?

Is there any plan to implement this? My users would get a notification of the availability of an item and ideally they would be able to purchase an item remotely (eg: from their phone).

Furthermore is there any plan for a Community Platform API for Diablo 3 as well?

Straton mentioned working on APIs for D3, so I'd say it's safe to assume there'll be an API similar to the WoW one.

Zonous, that doesn't help people that would like to make WoW AH purchases from third-party applications or websites.

Are you aware of the mobile auction house iPhone and Android applications?

We have no plans or intention of allowing this.

No way that is going to happen. That would mean being able to completely automate AH purchases with a trivial amount of code. Furthermore your API requests, even if signed, are not tied to a Battlenet account. There is no way to connect your request to a character in game.

Damn I type too slow :(

IE Blizzard's stance on botting and automation.

Wait... so you want to bypass the PAID service offered by Blizzard, and request that Blizzard implement the API code for you to do so?

Sorry at my poor English, I was laughing too hard.

I know you wont say but I sure would like to know how you would stop a rogue programmer from doing this. A little Perl, some php etc and you can do just about anything with any web page on the internet, including your remote auction house.

Just sayn.
