How long does it take to approve a Pathfinder-compatible logo application?


Product Discussion


I applied for a Pathfinder-compatible logo license a little over 2 weeks ago, but haven't heard anything back. Does anyone know how long it takes for Paizo to accept/deny the request?

You're stomping because you've waited two weeks? These things take time... and quite frankly, if what you're asking for isn't going to make money for them, don't expect to be dropping their high priority paying projects to give your thing top on the pile?

You should probably be looking at a couple of months before a response.


I'd be interested in knowing as well.
It probably fluctuates depending on the length of the product you are submitting. They have to read the whole thing to make sure it doesn't violate existing copyright law or the terms of their license, and I presume it takes them longer to read and review a 700 page supplement than a 3 page supplement.

Whoa, slow down there! Who said I'm stomping? I'm just asking a question. Sheesh.


I think by applying you... now have it. My recollection may be hazy, but by going through the steps you are now Registered. Check with Liz Courts at

consignments@paizo.com

to make doubly sure. I don't remember getting any notifications, and also being a little mystified. If this is the case, there may be some tweaking that can be done - I just figured it was me being a little obtuse. :)


Check your downloads for the compatibility logos. As FGP said, I think when you complete the application you are supposed to get an email and have the logos added to your downloads. However, I know that I never recieved the email, but the logos were already in my downloads when I asked about it.


To get signed up to actually sell here on the Paizo site, you need to email Cosignment. They will send you the contract etc, etc.

Compatibility License applications are automatically accepted at this time. As soon as you submitted it, you should have seen confirmation of that, including a notice that the logos have been added to your My Downloads page. (If you see them there, you're good to go. If you don't see them there, something unfortunate happened, and you should resubmit your application.)

Ah, okay. I didn't receive anything by way of notice or in my downloads. That said, I have one from 2011 in my downloads... could that be why?

That would do it—there was no need to resubmit.

To clarify, signing up for the Pathfinder Compatibility License is separate from signing up for consignments—they aren't the same thing. Check out the license FAQ here, and the consignments FAQ here.
