You no longer have to wait for approval before you can start selling designs. With our new pre-approval process, your Marketplace designs can be up and ready for sale in as little as 15 minutes.
Before we start, it’s important to point out that this information is only relevant for EU and UK partners who registered with us after October 19th, 2016.
What does this mean for me?
With the new pre-approval process, you can quickly react to viral trends (or simply add your designs to the Marketplace). What was once a lengthy approval process has been cut down significantly, allowing you to get to selling in no time at all.
Will my designs still be checked?
We’ll still be checking uploaded designs (refer to this list for reasons why a design may be rejected). Moving forward, this process will take place after the designs have been published to the Marketplace—hence the “pre-approval”.
What if my pre-approved design is denied once it has been reviewed?
If your pre-approved design is denied for any reason, it will be removed from the Marketplace. You will receive the standard “your design has been denied” message on your design page in the partner area. You, of course, have the option at that point to adjust your design to meet the guidelines and republish it.
How long does the pre-approval process take?
With the new pre-approval process, a preview link for the uploaded design is available immediately, and it should take about 10-15 minutes before your design is ready for sale.
The new pre-approval process gives you the power to act, react, publish and earn faster than ever before! So, what are you waiting for? Get in there and start uploading designs now!
And what about the Legacy User Area?
The User Area will be staying as is for the moment. However, migration to the new partner area will be happening soon. You’ll be receiving more information regarding this change in early March.
