Moderation

We check the details of all new and edited products. A product successfully passes moderation if all its required characteristics are filled in, and a correct description and images have been added.

How long the moderation takes #

  • After you added a new product, it will be checked within 1–3 business days. The product will not be shown to customers until this is done. The product will start being shown when moderation is passed successfully, and you supply the product to an Ozon warehouse, or specify its stock in your warehouse.
  • After you edited a product that has already passed moderation earlier, it will be checked within 1 business day. During the check, the product will continue being shown. If any errors are found in the edited product, it will be hidden.
  • If after adding or editing a product that ended up not passing moderation, you correct the errors and save the changes, the product will be checked within 1 business day. Until that, the product is not shown to users, you can not supply it to an Ozon warehouse, or specify its stock in your warehouse.
