Public charity status

Hi, our nonprofit Art Expression Inc. ( ) was recently reclassified as a Public Charity by the IRS, after previously being classified as a Private Foundation. This was effective January 1, 2018 but the IRS website did not reflect the change on their EO Select Check/Pub78 page until this week. I understand that GuideStar can't change our designation until the IRS listing reflects the change, which it now does. Can you tell me how long it should be before the change is reflected on our Guidestar page? We are applying to be included on AmazonSmiles, and they tell us that they can't approve us until our Guidestar page lists us as a public charity.
