Hi there,


My profile approval has been pending for nearly a week. Is there something else I need to do to complete the process?

Well in most of cases you you will receive email if you are approved or reject in 2 days or one. 


But process can take serval weeks.

Simple way to check: check your connects balance. Do they display 0 or 60? If they display 0, you aren't yet approved. If they display 60, congrats!
