T-shirt submissions are evaluated for compliance with our policies (such as the Content Policy and the FAQs) and the Merch by Amazon Services Agreement. For most t-shirts, this process only takes a short period of time, after which the status will change to “processing” while the t-shirt completes publishing. T-shirts may display a review status for several hours or longer if the t-shirt requires additional review by our team. If the t-shirt does not comply with our policies, you will see a “Rejected” status and receive an email notification.
To shorten the review time, please familiarize yourself with the following materials to ensure your t-shirts comply with Merch by Amazon policies:
