Order Completion and Review: Once an article is published, it will be submitted by the Publisher for the Marketer’s review.

Commission: The Marketer agrees to pay two types of commission for using Posticy Marketplace Services: the marketplace commission of 10% and the transaction commission of 3%.

An order is initiated when a Publisher receives a publication proposal from a Marketer. The Publisher will review the proposal to determine whether to accept or reject the article publication request.
An order may be rejected under the following conditions:
- If the proposal is in the “Requested” status for more than 7 days without further action from the Marketer.
- If the proposal is in the “Accepted” status for more than 7 days without the Marketer making the required payment deposit.
- If the proposal is in the “In Progress” status for more than 14 days without the Publisher marking the order as completed and providing the Published Article URL to the Marketer.
- If the Publisher decides not to proceed with the Marketer’s proposal.
Order Completion and Review
Once the Publisher accepts a Marketer’s article publication proposal and receives the payment deposit, the order progresses to the “In Progress” status. The Publisher’s responsibility is to publish the article and share the Published Article URL with the Marketer for review within 14 days.
Upon receiving the Published Article URL, the Marketer reviews the published article. If satisfied, the Marketer can accept the completion of the order, and it will transition to the “Completed” status.
If the Marketer requests revisions during the five-day review period, the order will be placed in the “Revision” status. In this case, the Publisher is required to address the Marketer’s specific revision requests while maintaining the original content, anchor text, and target URL.
