Diablo III's real-money auction house has opened up after a few delays

Activision Blizzard opens the doors to the Diablo III real-money auction house

It's finally here! Diablo III's real-money auction house, after delays, has opened up its doors in the Americas game region for the U.S. dollar, Australian dollar, and Mexican peso. Now players can hunt the dungeons of Diablo III for loot they can sell for actual, real money.

The real-money auction house for the Europe game region and the remaining Americas game region currencies (Chilean peso, Argentine peso, and Brazilian real) will launch in the "near future" according to Blizzard. Blizzard decided to not launch all regions at once, and just go stage-by-stage to ensure a smooth experience.

 

In order to use the real-money auction house, Blizzard have (smartly) decided to use added security measures. In order to access it, you'll need to attach a Battle.net Authenticator, or use the Battle.net Mobile Authenticator app (which I use, much easier). If you want to link your PayPal account to buy, or sell goods, you'll need to register for the Battle.net SMS Protect service. The Battle.net SMS Protect service sends text messages to you occasionally that contain messages with codes that much be entered online to complete transactions.
