Hello everyone! I’ll dive right in to it. I’m quite new at TF and I just tried to upload my second (the first one got declined) PDF -site and now it says “Temporarily held by the review team”. So my question to you is, how bad is that? How often does this happen? Do you guys get this sometimes or is this just a newbie mistake? Does it say WHY they (IF) declined your design in a mail or so?

Would appreciate all answers! Thank you guys!

My first file had the same thing happen (I’m new to the marketplace too) and it is nothing to worry about.

I asked support after waiting 4 days with this information for my upload, and it is nothing negative. Patience is the key, as apparently the reviewers are finding themselves with a huge influx of files to review.

Most likely, it has been seen by an initial reviewer and they are getting a second opinion :)

“Temporarily held by the review team” only means that the reviewer is in need of a second opinion or that your file is so special or unique that they have to discuss the price and category of that file.
