So you transferred money from your account, with a Finnish bank I suppose, to an account with a bank in the US?
Well the online store gave me an account with a German bank to transfer the money to, and I´m in Germany, too, so I hope this works better.
If you transfer from a german bank to a german account the trnafer will take 2-5 days depending on your bank. I found that Deutsche Bank or Post Bank usually is fastest with Sparkasse beeing amazingly slow . I don't know how long it will take Digital river to process the order then, but it should not take more then 1 or 2 days.
Why not set up a PayPal account? We accept PayPal too. you can then pay directly from your normal bank accoutn through PayPal, which makes the order beeing processed almost immediatly.
PayPal is very handy when you buy stuff online. And they have a very fast and responsive customer support too.
I confess I´m a bit biased against PayPal, mostly because I´ve been getting a ****load of spam/phishing mails allegedly originating with PayPal. I´m not an expert in this kind of this, but this does not instill much confidence in their security.
On the other hand, I have received at least three spam messages coming from my own e-mail account, so I guess I shouldn´t be talking...
Thanks for the reply, anyway.
I know German banks have a habit of taking several days for the credit part of a transfer to be processed (the debit part took less than 24 hours, though ). I wonder if this is similar in other countries...
