@Animate - thanks! The first submission took about 3-4 days I think, then the 2nd submission took 4 or so days, and submission 3 happened on the same day.

Normally they are pretty quick - around 3-5 days if nothing goes wrong.

Hi @Po10c, recently there has been a change to 4 countries which require an Age Rating Certification to be able to deploy there which unfortunately includes SA. Due to the short time lines I decided just to untick those 4 countries.

Has anyone explored getting the certs? Is it it hard?

In South Africa, all media sold in the country needs to be certified by the local ratings board called the FPB (Film & Publication Board). Unfortunately, the FPB is slow on the uptake on digital distribution and often just demands that certain online stores/services cut all sales if they're not certified.

If you really want to go through the process of getting your game certified for sale in SA, you can contact the FPB here: http://www.fpb.org.za/profile-fpb/contact-us. Be prepared to pay though. The current rate is the equivalent of about $210 per game :/

That's why most South Africans have historically (and many still do) sign up for these services with a UK or US account.

@GeometriX - thanks for the info that's useful to know. Yikes though 200USD is a bit steep for an indie for the time being

@Po10c - Well done mate! Best of luck for the compo
