Typically, only a few minutes/hours. However, during high-volume days, weekends and holidays it could require 24-48 hours to process. This is a one-time only process. Once you are approved, all future orders will be ready INSTANTLY with no wait. We understand you want your files immediately. We are right there with you. But due to the online fraud that plagues us all like digital locusts, it’s gotta be this way. So please, bear with us, and rest assured that the moment your account/download is approved, we will email and let you know. If you have not received an account approval email within 24 hours of your order, please login to your account to see if the download has been activated in your order history.
