I’m pretty sure most if not all of my preview images have a part that says “Click here for more info” or something like that, so now that’s obsolete.
Are your items hard rejected or soft rejected? Hard rejected means that you cannot resubmit your item, and soft rejected means that you just need to fix something small to resubmit again.
Make sure that if you’re using a preview image set, it’s max 900×900 pixels, they wont accept anything about that any more.
Your items should be original, if they look too similar to other items that are out there then they may not be accepted for that reason. Some unoriginal seem to slip through the cracks every once in a while, but if your item IS original and high quality, then you’re almost guaranteed to be accepted.
Are your files in the correct format? For example if you’re submitting some vector artwork, then don’t supply a flat JPEG. You should supply the AI, EPS, and PNG formats. The more the buyer can customize an item, the better it is.
Use these rejections as a way of pushing yourself to get better. Ever single one of my items have been rejected at least once, which is annoying, but also a good thing, because of that I was able to improve and continue to do so.
I hope this helps in some way .
...if they are unable to retrieve and pull the data of the previously trending items as they roll out this badge (yet to be decided) then everyone will be at the same starting point so it would be from this stage everyone has to try again and aim for a trending badge…
Makes me sad.
Welcome back scott with some questions:
I had an/two trending item but it is not trending now! Will I get the Trendsetter badge? If I made a tool/app using API will I get the two badges Industrious Inventor and Industrious API Inventor? And If I made a Api tool/app how can I knock you all that I have made an app for you!!! Is previous badges gonna change? (style, size)
Most of all I very much love this!!! I love badges very much! I love you badges
I too would like to know this. I’ve had an item trending before, and I think I might have been on the weekly top sellers list at one point as well. Will I get those new badges?
Ah, back in the day when IndustryKidz was just a n00b.
I don’t upload print templates, but if you’ve been waiting a week, that’s perfectly normal.
I can definitely tell that it’s a heart, but maybe it’s not quite obvious enough. It’s a nice idea, but maybe try to make it look like a flowing ribbon? Since it was hard rejected you’ll have to make some significant changes, so I would suggest playing with a ribbon idea since it somewhat looks like that already. Either that or try what tmcom said. Something like a heart based on love should be welcoming and have a sort of organic feel to it, right now it’s too ridged.
I can’t find any of my items anywhere in the categories I’ve submitted them to. I too have done many different searches and can’t find them.
The reviewer may have just missed it. When I updated one of my items that originally had images slightly larger than 900×900 they rejected the update because of that. I had to redo all of the preview images and bring them to max 900×900 before they would accept the update.
I don’t upload items often, so they may have changed something since the last time I did.
