Yea, two weeks should be the max.
At this time there is no way to check the status, they used to have a progress bar, but I believe they changed the way they work, so the progress bar became irrelevant and no longer showed accurate information. Right now there is no way for them to accurately tell you how long it’s going to take because things get moved around and some items take longer than others.
The best thing you can do is just be patient. If it goes past two weeks just simply submit a ticket to support and ask what’s going on. Don’t complain here in the forums about it, happens too often already and it won’t help.
If I was one of these authors, maybe I just forgot about the website, or took a break. I’d be pretty upset if I decided to come back to find that my account and whatever money I made is gone.
When I posted my first item it got one sale in the year that I kept it there. I also left my account for about a year before coming back. Now I’m here almost every day, even though the last item I submitted was a year ago.
If you’re buying an actual logo from GraphicRiver and not just some vector work to use in a new logo, then take a look at this: http://graphicriver.net/licenses/specialty?license=logo
Otherwise what SpaceStockFootage said is correct.
It can take anywhere between a few minutes to around two weeks. Most people seem to wait around a week.
There are many items being submitted at one time, so sometimes it can take a while to get through all of them.
From what I remember, there were tests you had to complete for each market you wanted to be an author on (Graphicriver, Themeforest, etc.). The review process was shorter, the item quality requirement was lower, the reviewers gave good and constructive feedback. Even with the lower quality requirements there seemed to be much more higher quality items, now it seems like some people just throw something together in 5 minutes and put it up for sale.
Maybe I can get a staff reply on this to have an official answer.
Yea, it’s not found for me either. Are buyers required to have an account to purchase items?
I’m not 100% sure how Envato API works, but from what I understand it gives access to the database of items and users so that app developers can create Envato related apps. Would this help in doing what I mentioned above?
That’s really weird… Why would this be a thing?
I’ve had a similar problem with Photoshop. All I did was restart my computer and it worked again. Maybe there was some sort of bug or a setting was changed and reset when I restarted. Whatever it was, it’s fixed now and all I did was turn it on and off again lol.
To clarify, would I somehow be able to have an item on my own website where I can show it however I want, and design the page myself, then when people click the “Buy” button it seamlessly goes through Envatos system? If I could do that, would it still be as secure?
I could just link people directly to the item on GraphicRiver, but that would be an extra step for buyers which you usually want to avoid. So it’d be easier (for them) to buy on my website but still have it go through all of Envatos stuff.
