Offer in approval status for weeks?



We are in the process of publishing an offer. However, it has had the status "Under approval" with Microsoft for more than a week, though it says this should take 1-2 days. What is wrong?


Best regards,

Knut A. Strom-Gundersen


Hi Knut,


I can't speculate on the cause of the long approval process in your particular situation from this post, but I can help you move toward getting unblocked.


Quick question: Have you opened a support request with commercial marketplace publisher support? If you haven't already, please do so at the link here: aka.ms/marketplacepublishersupport.


When you copy and paste this link:


  • Don't change the first two drop downs, as they have been pre-populated to route you to a commercial marketplace support specialist. Start with "select the product version" and choose the appropriate selection for your issue 
  • Select the category that best describes your issue (this is aligned with the offer type you're trying to publish)
  • Select the problem that best describes your issue
  • Once you move on to the next screen, provide a short issue title and describe your issue in detail in the designated fields
  • Click through and provide the contact method that works best for you - given potential time differences, I would suggest email to meet the 8 business hour SLA

Once you have a ticket number, someone from support will be in touch to provide more detailed information. If you run into any issues, or if you've already done this, please let me know.
