How the review process works

  • When your product is ready for publication, submit it for review from the Distribution screen and it will enter the review queue.

  • Our review team will go over the product's content and deliverables.

  • The assigned reviewer will either publish the product if it meets our critera, or help you get it ready for publication.

  • In case the product is too far away from meeting our quality critera, it will be rejected outright.

Passing and failing quality review

  • Passing review

    After your product has been reviewed and passed all of the above criteria, you will receive an Email notification and your product will be published on the Binpress marketplace.

  • Soft rejections

    If there minor issues that need addressing, the reviewer will help you go over and fix any issues that were found during review. We also try to help you improve the marketing aspects of your product profile.

  • Rejections

    If the product does not meet our quality standards, it will be rejected for publication on the marketplace. You can still publish it on your own Binpress store.
