My transaction has been successful, but I'm sitting here waiting for the monero gui wallet to download the blockchain. It's showing my balance as 0 which seems to be a common issue.

This similar question explains how you can connect your GUI to a remote node to verify your balance. For a more technical, but more secure method read about how to use view keys and key images to verify a balance without exposing your private keys to the internet.


MyMonero would probably be the easiest method. Keep in mind that even though MyMonero is considered trustworthy, sending your private anywhere is a security concern.
