Ship Transfer request help.

Hi, I was playing the game previously on the Microsoft version prior to the Steam release. I've just attempted to purchase AC to perform a ship transfer to play with a friend and it's currently holding my AC Exchange Ticket in my Steam inventory despite this not being my first AC purchase on this account, merely the first time I've purchased on Steam. Is this intended and is there any way to expedite it so that I'm able to have my character transfer over during the scheduled maintenance 11/24? Or would buying AC through Microsoft still be an option to try and circumvent the waiting period for Steam?

all first time purchase made using Steam have a 24 hours wait, doesn't matter if is not the first time you bought AC for the account is the first time you are doing it from Steam so the rule applies

Gotcha, thanks for clarifying.
