I have been trying to transfer bitcoins via mtgox's withdraw bitcoin api call with this http address


and when I log the response to console I get

{ result: 'success',
  return: { trx: 'a748ee68583a1cedbdde694a5716909cad8feea1545e946145f48f95ced15037' } }

yet the number of bitcoins in my account remains unchanged.

What could possibly be causing this?

and I'm positive my api key has the correct permissions (unless it's merchant)

The problem I was having had to do with formatting. In the api documentation there is an amount_int param which needs to be passed with the http request. I had forgotten that mtgox requires anything with _int postfixing to be in the form amount * 10 ^ 8

so for example if you were trying to send 0.01 bitcoins for the amount_int field you would put

0.01 * 10 ^ 8 = 1000000
