    Ok, I have a valid credit card and I have attempted to purchase two programs, and I have waited over 13 minutes and the animated bar remains frozen, and in small letters it says it's authorizing, mean while back at google check out, I am told that I just purchased the program. If this keeps up, I am not going to have any money for Christmas gifts. Anyone for my sanity have had problems with this stupid market place / google check out?

    I had that happen to me once. I just waited for about half a day and then it went through OK.

    That happened to me. Was unable to purchase as my bank does not allow international transactions. I really really wanted the pure calendar apparently. :-(

    I purchased Pure calendar yesterday and it took a few hours to show up. Looks to be the norm.

    Ok, I am trying to play detective here, so the purchase of the programs are immediately transacted by google checkout, but the authorization like I said, is taking anywhere from mega minutes, hours, and as one person mention, a day. I think by looking at the price of the program, which is in Euro, is telling me that this is where the delay is, not that it has to be converted over to US dollars, but where this program is originating from. I wish that they would tell you how long it can take for these programs to download, but I guess if they did no one would want to purchase them. On the other hand, if you wait 20 minutes like I did, you would want to cancel any way.

    If it says "authorizing" it's more than likely an issue between Google Checkout and your bank/card.

    Well, apparently there is a problem with their system, I have NEVER once had any problems with PayPal, all my purchases were immediate, and I was never charged an extra dollar or whatever BS they give you. I think it's all a scam. I try loading a program yesterday four times and now have $4.00 deducted from my account. Like I said, a scam.

    I bought two sets of electronic RCP ringtones. The first purchase went right through. The second got hung up on the authorization. I contacted the developer who was very cool and extremely responsive. He emailed me the app which I then installed through my computer. That process was quick and painless. While the problem seems to be with marketpace (don't blame the developer) the developer might be able to help out.
