I have sales for Jan, Feb, Mar & Apr. I have seen no payments so far. When should I expect to see payments made?

If you have direct deposit/EFT, you should have received payment by now and should contact Amazon directly (contact link at lower right of this page) and ask.

If you are paid by check, you have to wait until 60 days after the end of the month in which your accumulated royalties in any one store total $100.

For more information, look at the thread in this forum (first page), "OK, where are my payments?" It will help you.

I just added a bank account for direct deposit. I thought I had already done that. How long before I see payments to the account I added.?

If you just signed up for direct deposit now, you will receive your first deposit 60 days after the end of May (end of July). Payments always lag by two months (a heck of a lot better than traditional publishing, where the lag is 6 months to a year).

Write and ask politely if Amazon will send you the accumulated royalties you never got because of being signed up for check payment. Probably within a month or so from now you'll get those royalties, either by direct deposit/EFT or by check.
