Hi,

So i uploaded an item the other night and it has come back as rejected. The reason being…

“Unfortunately, your submission is too similar to existing item(s) in our marketplace. Your upload must be a unique concept not based on any existing marketplace item.”

I’ll be honest here, the item is going to be used for my own personal site. I figured I would kill two birds with one stone and sell it as a template. So it being rejected, while discouraging, is fine cause maybe I shouldn’t put on the market place any way.

The item is a downloads blog. Meaning its a template for a site that has downloads. You know like the ones that give away free PSD ’s and what not. As far as i know, there are no items on the market place directly catered for this. So why would it be rejected for not being a unique concept?

Heres the link to the demo http://demo.jessengatai.com/zippit/

If you’d like to post a link to your item to get feedback or discussion on how to improve it, it must be posted in the “Item Discussion” section of the forums.

I know they mention concept but it’s all about the aesthetics

I understand what your saying infused … but premium pixels is not a marketplace item.
