I credited the money in my account when I receive them on my bank account?

Your post does not make any sense but I will attempt a reply.

Above under 'Reports' you will see for 'Payments' the date your money should be sent to your bank.
When your bank displays or honors the deposit is up to the bank.
Deposits into a country other than the US, the bank itself may take a day or so longer to display the deposit.
The deposit will be in your country money exchange, per the US dollar exchange value when your bank finalizes it.
Once Amazon sends the money, it is then out of their hands. It is all up to the bank to report the deposit and the amount.

Hi Donna,

You seem to know what's what. :-)

I am looking at the immense disparities (thousands of dollars) among

1. the royalties Amazon states my books have earned
2. The payments Amazon lists
3. The payments that have actually made it to my bank account.

My book has been sold since 2011. This is not new. But it's always a mess. Same with the paperback via Advantage.

Would you happen to know an accountant who could help me with this? I just can't deal with it anymore.

(I have sent queries to Amazon, but who knows...)

Thanks so much,
Gina Pera

This may be your problem. If you published your books thru Amazon, you should NOT be in the Advantage program. That would be for people that have things (like shoes and televisions) that they sell on Amazon. IF they have been charging you, you need to get your money back, if possible on your own error of signing up for it.

Would you happen to know an accountant who could help me with this? I just can't deal with it anymore.

An accountant would not be cheap and they would have to learn all of the varied programs and royalty rules. You can figure it out. If you do want one, find one in your area.

Did you use the 'Contact Us' below?

Well, lots of people sell books on Amazon through the "Advantage" program. I was one of them, until they started charging an annual fee for it.

(How long do you think it will be before ole Jeff starts charging an annual fee for KDP publishers?)

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ

That may not be a bad thing. It could reduce the amount of garbage and scammers.

So are you willing to pay $99 a year to use the KDP, as Amazon Advantage marketers do?
