I submitted my feed, but it is still pending approval after 4 days.  What is the usual time frame for a feed to be approved?

Answer from Celebird, Top Contributor:

most (delays in) awaiting-reviews are usually triggered by five issues --
(a) a potential policy violation of an item, feed, website, or type of item;
(b) submitted data not adhering to the rules or policies of a target-country;
(c) a recently registered feed;
(d) a feed that has not been updated with respect to a new rule or policy;
(e) certain (feed) data updates -- such as a new product or any id update;

check the products-tab, data-feed status, and the data-feed
status-summary-report against google's policies and rules.

if there are any obvious issues, simply make the corrections
in the feed or on the website, and then re-upload the feed.

otherwise, google may be contacted here --
