Not to worry. We received your press release. We also (probably) received your contribution. (Oh, and THANK YOU for that, as well! It's a massive help to us and helps to pay for the annual hosting and all that.)
All press releases are received and stored in an approval queue for editors to review and post. We have never lost a story yet -- and very frequently get multiple postings of the same story by members concerned that their story was lost.
Depends on whether the error was human- or network-induced. Network induced means that we might have lost the story (never happened yet, though). Human-induced means we did not accept your story, and we felt the content was not newsworthy. While this is also rare, it does happen. Denied posts usually stem from people trying to veil an advertisement for steriods, male enhancement, etc in a bonafide story. We catch these outright, and generally don't allow them unless the poster has a bit of class.
Sending us ten bucks to post 844 URLS to various websites that you are an affiliate for? That's spam, baby. We won't take that. As for your donation? Thanks. Consider that administrative fees for having to delete all your spammy submissions. Just a word of advice to all would-be spammers.
All press releases are reviewed first for content, and then approved if the submission follows proper press release format and it is NEWSWORTHY. Your payment is not a payment for the press release, it is a donation in support of this site. Bigger donations get more traffic, additional features enabled, and prominent placement on the homepage. However, it does NOT guarantee placement or approval.
Thanks for your support!
Please see other sections of the FAQs regarding donations and submission guidelines. Meanwhile, thanks for your support.Back to top
Nope. We give you an opportunity to donate to our site with each and every submission so that you can be assured your press release receives the utmost attention and fastest expedited service possible, every single time.Back to top
Sure. Of course, submitting a press release is free, but depending on the software that you have, we'd be happy to consider a trade for services. But it all depends on the software. I mean, if you have software that predicts the future, then that would be awesome. But if it is software designed to send out viruses... well, then that's not so cool. I guess it all depends...Back to top
You do not require a Paypal account to use Paypal. You can use any recognized credit card. We bear the burden of the processing fees out of the actual donation. This is why we suggest a donation of greater than $1 - because processing fees otherwise eat up all of the benefit. Paypal just makes it easier for those people that have money in a paypal account.
As far as security, it is the chosen provider for literally millions. Since this is a donation site, I'm not about to invest heavily into a paid service, as the revenues just do not justify it.
Thanks for your support and your goodwill.
We would suggest you just submit your press release using one of the other donation options to determine your level of support and return.Back to top
Hi there, your release has been posted - it has to be reviewed by a person prior to posting. We can't auto-post because there is so much junk submitted. You can do a contribution - just resubmit the same release and contribute and we will put it in the proper category then delete the first one.
