Product profiles can be in seven different states: published, draft, pending approval, pending update, rejected, ready for approval, and ready to submit. Product profiles will transition from state to state as you progress along the path of publishing your products on RangeMe.
Once a pending product profile has been reviewed and approved by our product approvals team, it will officially be published and live on the platform. Published product profiles are visible to buyers and can be discovered at any time.
When you first create a product profile it will be in draft status. This means the product profile has not yet been completed and submitted for approval to be published. When you are ready to submit this product for approval to be published on RangeMe, click Edit and fill in any incomplete mandatory fields.
Once all the information has been completed, click the green “Submit For Approval” button at the top right of your edit page.
Pending approval products are completed product profiles that have been submitted for approval but have not yet been reviewed. A pending product profile is not published until it has been approved by the RangeMe product approvals team. We will not approve a product profile unless it has met all the necessary product approval requirements.
Pending update products are any products that have already been approved and a critical field has been edited and needs approval again. You can read about critical fields here.
Rejected products have been rejected by our product approval team since the product did not meet our standards to get published.
Ready for Approval
When you finish all the necessary fields for approval on a product and do not submit your product yet, you will have a “ready for approval” status.
Ready to Submit Update
Your product will be in a “ready to submit update” status when you edit a critical field and it is ready to be submitted for approval again.
You have the ability to track how many views and saves your product has received at any time. Just click on the ellipsis on the far right-hand side of your product listing and then select View Product Statistics.
To edit published product profiles, simply click the product and make any edits you need. For additional information, please see this article.
