Many Partners currently need to wait several days before their designs can be approved. This is due to a small handful of Partners uploading thousands of designs on a daily basis, causing a tailback for all other design uploads. For this reason, we’ll put a cap on the total number of daily design uploads designs to speed up the verification process. Read on to learn more.
Reasons for tailback
Spreadshirt’s design review team examines about 5,000 designs on a day-to-day basis, making sure every single design complies with our technical, legal and ethical guidelines. Possible reasons for rejection can be found in our Help Center.
A small handful of Partners upload hundreds of designs every day, thereby drawing the attention of the whole team to their uploads. As a consequence, all other Partners need to wait about 4 days until their new design uploads can be cleared.
To be able to treat partners more fairly by reducing the total number of design uploads, we will limit the total number of possible design uploads.
• 200 designs max. per day
• The limit will enter into force as from 11 October 2017
• The limit applies to the new User Area only (Partners who opened an account after 20 October 2016)
As soon as a Partner reaches 200 design uploads per day, he will be informed in the upload section. He will then have to wait until the next day to upload more designs.
In addition to speeding up the review process, the limit will allow Partners to invest more time in developing their designs, and to come up with appropriate keyword tags and descriptions. Choosing good keywords and a suitable description is essential to make designs visible on the Marketplaces as well as to help search engines find the design.
