I am a registered seller. I keep adding the same product again and again but it keeps disappearing from my Dashboard.

Not all products clear our screening process. If you don’t see your product approved in 3-4 days of submission and isn’t showing any more on your Dashboard/List of Products – it means that the product is not approved. There is no need to resubmit the same repeatedly.

We suggest you work on the next product and try to click good product pictures to increase the chances of approval and listing.
