This is ridiculous because no one beats the A-Team.

comment 買う, durative or instantaneous?
Your question is not inline with the title. Are you asking specifically about 買う as the title says, or do you really want to know about verbs in general (as you say, a fool-proof way to know if a verb is durative or instantaneous)?

comment Specialized banking/credit card vocabulary
決済 is the correct word for a settled payment, but does settled payment necessarily imply a finalized transaction? Settled payment (like of a vehicle loan) may involve several transactions, each being "finalized". Anyway, just sounds a little ambiguous to me.
