Why is the platform not accepting my video submission
Be sure you are using your original Youtube URL to submit your video to the platform. If it is a Bit.ly of your video link, the platform will not accept it. The platform will require you to include your FTC Disclaimer, stated that your video is either "paid for" or "sponsored by" the brand you are working with. The last thing to check for is your tracking Bit.ly link that is required in the description box of your video, above the fold.
Why have I not been paid?
If payment was not received when you expected it to be, this may be because the brand did not formally approve your deliverables on the platform. Please double check that this and remember that payment will be released within 2 weeks of the brand approving.
