Partnership Application Review Process


After you apply to join an advertiser’s program, your account enters their queue of publishers pending approval. The advertiser will review your application and decide whether they want to accept or decline your partnership request. How long this process takes varies by advertiser.

Application Review Timeframe

Every advertiser’s review process is different. Depending on the volume of applications in an advertiser's program, you may be accepted on the same day you apply or need to wait several days or weeks.

 Success Tip

Some advertisers automatically approve publishers into their programs. This means you do not need to wait for your application to be accepted, and you can add the advertiser’s links to your site almost immediately.

Wait an appropriate amount of time before contacting the advertiser to inquire about delays. You can find their contact information in the About tab of their details page.

Pending Applications

Your application is pending until the advertiser reviews it. You can keep track of your pending applications by following these steps:

  1. Go to Advertisers in the navigation header and click My Advertisers.
  2. Click Filters.
  3. In the Partnership Status section, check the box next to Pending.
  4. Click Apply filters.

Application Decision Notification

When an advertiser approves or declines your application, you will receive a notification in the Notifications tab in the top menu of your Publisher Dashboard. You can also check your partnership status in the dashboard.

Next Steps

You can post an advertiser’s links on your site once your partnership is approved. If your partnership was declined, view the possible reasons why and further actions you can take.
