The days of patiently waiting for your designs to be approved before you could begin selling them are gone. With our new pre-approval process, your Marketplace designs can be up and ready for sale in a matter of minutes. This is perfect for those of you out there who rely on speed to capitalize on a viral trend, or for anyone who doesn’t mind saving a few minutes of their life here and there.
This information is only relevant for US and Australian partners who registered with us after October 19th, 2016 as well as for Canadian partners who registered with us after May 30th, 2016.
Publishing your designs to the U.S., Canadian and Australian Marketplaces just got a whole lot faster. With Spreadshirt’s new pre-approval process, your designs can be up and earning in as little as 15 minutes.
What does that mean for me?
With the new pre-approval process, reacting to viral trends (or simply adding your designs to the Marketplace) is a lot faster and a lot more agile. What once was a lengthy approval process, has been cut down significantly, allowing you to get your designs up, selling and earning in no time at all.
Will my designs still be checked?
All uploaded designs must still be checked against printability guidelines, but moving forward, this process will take place after they 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 you are looking at 10-15 minutes before you design is published for sale. PLEASE NOTE: Purchases cannot be made through the preview link. Products may only be purchased once the designs have been published to the Marketplace.
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!
