I have a batch sitting on StockXpert for two weeks now. ( ??? Their system is confusing - all newly updated images have "Pending" status. Of course after upload I edit the pics (categories etc.) and press the "Submit" button   - but there is no actual confirmation that anything has changed - the image is still "Pending".  ???)  Previous batches have been approved much faster - but now they really slowed down. Anyone ?

I suspect that the head StockXpert reviewer takes a quick peak at submission batches - if a few of the images catch his/her eye then your approval may be expedited. I've had batches approved in under an hour as well as ones that sat around for a few days.

I usually submit images in batches of 10 to 20. StockXpert is usually quick to review - my average wait time is about 2 days.

Here's some recent data:

Thanks. BTW - how do you manage to produce 10 pics for submission every day (unless this is a full time job for you  :o )?

They review my images on a daily basis. I have never waited more than 36 hrs to get an image reviewed.

Yes, I do this full time.

I manage when and what I upload, and always have a reserve of images at the ready (currently 50+ for StockXpert). I started a thread about uploading strategies a few weeks ago, but just about everyone thought I was wasting my time studying this. The general consesus was that I'd be further ahead making images rather than figuring out how to maximize the profit from them. The prevailing attitude is to make a bunch of images, upload as soon as you can, then see what sticks. Pell-mell and amateurish. The professional approach, to me at least, is obvious.

I agree with you here.  I spend a lot of time studying the workings of each site. It definitely pays to work out the ways of maximizing sales on each site.

I think Sharply is right about trying to maximize earnings.  His thoughts on using Scout less because of the impact of a late approval in best match searches is a wise idea (no matter how angry I may be that a inspector rejected something good). 

But in terms of the "right" day to upload, is there any site in which this is relevant, apart from SS?

Adelaide
