Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

Or, more technically, until a clear offer and acceptance is in place.

Accepting the transaction amount is a clear proof
that acceptance has happened.

ianal, but i believe you're wrong on this assumption.  a business can
to not perform a transaction with anybody they want to.  they're not
obligated simply because the consumer has legal currency and wants to
perform a transaction of some sort.  the only time the business is
to complete the transaction is once they've accepted all or even part of
transaction amount from the customer.  until then there is no contract
obligating the business.
