artifex, the delay isn't in place to discourage gold buyers because they have to wait for their paid-for gold. It's in place to allow a system that looks for suspicious transactions. An easy way to transfer gold from seller to buyer is for the buyer to put an incredibly low-value item on the auction house for the amount of gold purchased; the seller then buys the item when he sees that you've paid for the gold. The hour's delay allows a GM to step in and say "you know, [Hunk of Bread] doesn't usually sell for 50,000g".Likewise, since mailing money and items is subject to a delay, GMs can look at transactions over a certain gold amount or CODs where the item is low-value and the COD amount is enormous.TLDR: It's not to inconvenience gold sellers/buyers; it's to allow the GMs time to step in.
