Hi Anna,

I just checked your account and at the moment you will only need to submit your application for a review. If you`re ready please go to the bottom of the page and click on Review Application, the review process can take up to 24 hours. Once the review is finished our team will reach out to you with the results, thank you.

I have submitted my application a few days ago.

I heard it takes usually 24 hours to get an answer as to whether you've been approved or not.


I don't understand why it's taking so long.

I haven't missed a section, and i've always checked both my inbox and junk/spam mail.

 I doubt your profile pic will fly unless you are a Smurf.

Fairly non-descript overview and worst of all - no portfolio!

Without a meaningful portfolio you might as well forget it considering you are trying to break into what is one of the most competitive and cut-throat categories on the platform.

Hi Sylvia,


I've checked and you don't need to submit your profile for review. However, you do need to enter your address on your Contact Info and Tax Information pages (click on your photo in the upper-right corner > Settings).
