The specific response time for Substack support tickets is not publicly stated on their website or in their support documentation. It may vary depending on the nature of the issue, the volume of tickets they are currently handling, and other factors.

However, it's common for companies to aim to respond to support tickets within 24-48 hours. If you have submitted a ticket and have not received a response within this timeframe, it may be helpful to follow up.
