For your first test article you should be approved within 1 - 3 days.. Then your first paid article will also be considered a trial period. All paid articles (during the trial period and after) currently take 0-3 weeks to be approved but we are working hard to narrow that gap.
While you are in the Trial Period, you can write a maximum of 3 articles, but if one of them is approved, you will automatically become an active writer. You will no longer be on Trial Period.
