what the hell with rma

Technical Support
I make a small purchase, I get an e-mail, YOU WON AN AUCTION YAY!!!!, I immediatly recieve another e-mail telling me the auction is in review.

""If the transaction is not approved, it will be canceled and no items or money will be exchanged.

So the money is gone from my bank account within 2 or 3 minutes. Imagine how smooth this would work if we got we wanted as fast as you get paid.

Why the wait?

That's just it. Your RMAH purchase goes to the player posting the item, not Blizzard. Blizzard does receive a small portion though. The funds are not immediately transferred either which is what the review is all about. The system has to verify the poster has a valid payment reception method and that your funds are valid and not fraudulent. This takes time and is mostly dependent on the financial institutions involved which operate with their own time schedules and policies.
