The moderation time depends on the moderation type set in the program: automatic or manual.
If the advertiser set automatic moderation (auto-approval) for their program, you will join the program immediately after clicking the Join button.
How can I find programs with automatic moderation?
To find such programs, enable the Auto moderation filter in All programs.
Some advertisers prefer to process applications of each publisher manually. With that, it is the advertiser who decides how often to carry out moderation.
On average, manual moderation lasts up to 5 days.
Most advertisers moderate requests regularly: once a week or even daily.
However, moderation may last up to a month in some programs. This may happen in two cases:
- When the advertiser moderates applications rarely and/or occasionally.
- In popular programs (less frequent). In this case, even if moderation is carried out often enough, there are too many requests so they cannot be processed quickly.
Some programs show average moderation time on their page:
We do our best to encourage advertisers to carry our manual moderation as quickly as possible. However, we do not always succeed in that.
What else affects moderation time?
Some advertisers limit the number of actions in their programs. This is typical of mobile programs and online games.
To keep the limits observed, advertisers connect a limited number of publishers to their programs.
In this case, it is the advertiser who decides how many publishers to connect. This is why they can suspend moderation at any time.
With that, the advertiser does not always decline publishers’ requests. Instead, the advertiser might keep them on hold until they need more publishers. In such a case, a join application can be being moderated for up to a month or even longer.
Why did the advertiser decline my join application?
You can read about the reasons for rejecting ad spaces here.
What do I do if my application is being moderated for too long?
If the advertiser hasn’t reviewed your request within 5 days, contact the support desk.
A support engineer will contact the advertiser’s manager and try to find out the causes of such a delay.
