Today we’re announcing a change to submission limits for music category items.
Recently we’ve slowly seen AudioJungle queues growing, and increased wait times means that it takes longer for you to publish your items and start earning.
Our goal with these changes is to make it a faster process for authors. These changes will mean that the items submitted are more likely to be approved, reducing the time and effort for both authors and reviewers.
How does it work?
Currently items in the music subcategory have submission limits based on the number of items in the review queue (5 for non-Elite authors, and 10 for Elite authors).
We are now moving to a time-based limit, grouped by approval ratio (rather than by Elite status). This means that approval ratios will be reassessed every calendar month, and be based on your last 20 music items submitted.
|Approval Ratio||Submission Limit|
|Authors with <50%||2 items p/m|
|Authors with >=50%||30 items p/m|
The monthly submission limit reset is also based on Melbourne time (AEDT/AEST), so keep this in mind when uploading your tracks. For example, an item uploaded on the last day of the month in Europe may count towards the next month’s limit if it’s done in the evening.
The limits above have been chosen to ensure that most authors won’t notice much of a difference with this change - apart from faster approval and shorter review queue times!
To check your limit, you’ll be able to visit the upload section in your account which will state how many items you can upload this month (shown in the image below).
The limits may change as we find the right balance for Envato and the community, and we will update you with any substantial changes.
Please note: The other audio categories, such as music packs, music kits, logos and idents are not changing. They will continue to use the current submission limits based on review queue and Elite status.
How can I improve my approval ratio?
Your approval ratio is based on how many items you submit versus how many of those submitted get approved. So the aim is have the majority of items you submit be approved. It’s worth noting that soft rejections do not count against your approval ratio, only hard rejections do.
With this in mind, the best way to improve your approval ratio is to think carefully about what you’re uploading, and only submit your best items.

The changes will come into effect later this week.
