Hi Stu. Thank you for your feedback. We work hard to review ads as quickly as possible, and we review most ads within 1 business day. Some reviews may take longer because some ads require more complex review. If you would like additional information, please see our support page on the approval process here.


If you would like to give me a little more information, I can assist you in trying to figure out why your review processing time is lagging.  


There's a great thread regarding new accounts being suspended located here. Please review it and see if this applies to your situation. If it does not, we can figure out how to best solve your problem.
