Hallo, everyone,

I've just decided to start uploading on 123RF, but I must recognize that I encountered a lot of problems. This website is really a big mess. I need a little help from you, please. So, after I have send them my ID copy, I was able to upload some vectors. I don't know if I have done it right, because the procedure is a little different than other stock sites. After I complete the upload and the Title/description + keywords, I am expecting to find a button that needs to be pressed to send them to the reviewers. I didn't find such a button, only a "save" one, near the "pending" and "remove" ones. Does exist such a button and I couldn't find it or that is all I needed to do in order to submit my images?

Thank you in advance for your help,
Greetings, Luka.

Just do a select all, save and that's it. Pending means they are pending review. There is no submit button on 123.  I agree that their site is a flipping mess and very hard to navigate.

Thanks a lot! I've spent more than 2 hours searching for a solution. :)

I also started to upload to 123 lately and their interface is indeed the least contributors friendly of all sites I'm using now.

Every time I need to submit images or check something I feel like I have to use some back doors and emergency exits to reach my files ;D

 :) Do you have any idea how much does it takes until the files are reviewed? And how I notice this? Just checking in the accepted folder or I get also a confirmation e-mail?
Thanks and have a nice day!

In January my first batch was approved just within a couple of days, now I've got files pending for over a week I guess.
I didn't get any confirmation email the first time (not sure maybe somewhere in the mess of their settings this option exists :D but i just go to my portfolio page or "manage media" page once in a while to check on the status..

Hahaha I sure am on IStock, yes the submission process is painful but at least when I open my DeepMeta all is clear there - what to do, where to click ;D I just meant that 123 contributor's page is a mess, even though submission is faster

It was my first stock site and I had no problems uploading. I like it there and I have made more money there than on Shutterstock.

However, review times suck.

Hi, it's me again :)

My images are still pending on this site and I don't know if usual it takes a long period of time until the evaluation or I have made something wrong. My images appear in "all" files and in "incomplete" files, and any of them into the accepted or rejected fields. So, I wonder if there is just a simply delay or I needed to complete some more fields and I don't know. For example, I didn't choose any country, can be this the problem?

Thanks in advance!

How long it usually takes until the first review occurs? From your experience, of course. My images were uploaded on February  12th. It is too early to expect something to happen? I don't want to upload more until I am not sure that I have done it well the first time. It is enough work anyway...and just for pennies. I think I may start begging on the corner. I will earn much :)  and with less efforts >:(

I would say three weeks is about right....in the long run although it is irritating it doesn't really matter....the trick is to fire them off and move on otherwise you you will spend time stressing

Thanks a lot everyone!   :) Then I will try to not check every day if they are accepted or not.

My last batch took about 10 days to be reviewed, maybe even less, the previous batch took only a couple of days, so it depends ;)

Lately it takes forever to get the images reviewed  ..

My latest batch was in queue almost a month and to top it up this month was
the worst, sale wise :|
The fact that no new images were approved  didn't help either :p

I gave up uploading to 123rf as I could not the the csv to work. I wrote to them 5 times to check what the issue was and finally got this random very unhelpful reply.
"We've checked your CSV and notice that your Oldfilename did not match your Orifilename.
Kindly check your both filename and try to upload your CSV again.
"

Finally my images were approved, after 20 days of waiting. They don't appear in searches, so I guess it will take another 20 days till my portfolio will be online >:(.  Thank you all for your replies.
