When Should I Decline A Post?

If you receive a piece of content that is completely unworkable, does not pertain to your business, or you anticipate changes taking more than three rounds of edits to fix, then you should decline it.

(If a post just needs a few changes, you can request edits from the writer instead. Learn how here.)

How To Decline A Post

You can only declined viewed submissions. So if your submission says "New," simply click on the title of the content to expand it. 

To decline a post, click on the “Decline” button located underneath the submission's title and next to the “Request Edits” button:

Use the comment box that follows to state exactly why you are declining the piece of content. Other writers can read these comments, and if you are very specific about why you didn't like a certain submission, other writers will be careful to avoid these mistakes.

Be careful, though! Writers are allowed to re-use declined content elsewhere and submit declined pieces to different customers. Once you click decline, please know that you will probably not be able to get that submission back.

What If A Submission Has Something Seriously Wrong?

When declining a submission you have another option: “Report this submission.” Use this option if you suspect a pieces was plagiarized, contains inappropriate content, or just looks unusual.

When you do that, our system will immediately notify a Verblio staffer. We’ll then check it out and take any action necessary to ensure that you always get great posts and make sure that the writer isn’t breaking any Verblio rules.
