i just preordered dark souls 2 on pc and it says i have to wait 24 hours for the order to process

not really a big deal to me but do i really have to wait 24 hours every time i order a digital game?

I paid using a credit card the one time I used their site for a digital download, and it took over 24 hours for me as well.

It was a horrible, horrible experience. No confirmation e-mail, no tracking number, going back to the site and looking at my cart and account history showed nothing in it (and going to the separate company that actually handles the digital downloads had nothing in the records that I could see either), etc. I honestly thought I screwed something up and it didn't go through, so I just went through Amazon and got a digital copy of the same game almost instantly.

Then of course more than a day later I finally get an e-mail for the digital download link and the money is taken out of my credit card, and trying to get a refund was even more of a nightmare.

tl;dr Don't use Gamestop for digital downloads. Seriously, don't.
I feel a draft on my butt...

ok i'll wait 24 hours and see if i get the email and they take the money

if that becomes an issue and i don't receive the game by release date i'll dispute it with paypal
