I have been waiting forever, it seems, and now I am owed for April and May and still no transfer. Way past the 60 day mark by now.

If you have accumulated $10 in royalties prior to the last 60 days in sales through your DTP dashboard managed titles, have your payment info properly entered into the system, provided your TIN, etc., and have not received a payout, you should contact support. I receive my payouts monthly, via direct deposit.

One time, I messed up something (I had made a change to where my account was held) and they notified me of the problem and helped me fix my info and then made the deposit that they'd already tried to make. So, in my experience, Amazon has been very good on making payments due.

You should have received April's royalties, if you were owed more than $10.00. May's royalty payment is due in a few days.

Ann, thank you for posting your experience with direct deposit. I just changed the account it will go into and I was a bit nervous!

So they changed it? I already got paid the last few times, and usually around the 15th. So they're waiting until after the 1st of the third month? There's nothing in the agreement that says when they issue payouts, only a given period of time after the last day of a month for sales. Was why I was asking.

I think they say within 60 days of the end of the month. My recent remittance advisory emails for direct deposit payment option were received on:

4/1 (for Jan 2010)
4/29 (for Feb 2010)
5/27 (for March 2010)
6/24 (for April 2010)

The deposits themselves sometimes take a day or two before appearing in my account, but I don't know if that's amazon or the bank.

This basically means that it's now 90 days of the end of the month, since I was not paid for November of last year until March 2nd, and subsequent months until way later than posted. I think DTP should be about changing its payout faq.

The minimum payout is $10 by ACH. Did you indeed have $10 accrued by the end of June, so that a payout was due at the end of August?

In answer to the OP: yes, I got an ACH transfer in each of the past three months, and indeed in every month since January 2008.

Well, they finally got caught up with me on April 2nd. Since sales were slow in February and March I won't get paid again until May.
