Hi...can anyone tell me how I can change my bank account details on Amazon. I am in the UK. Please note - not the card details, I can see where to do that but the account details. I want my royalties paid into my second account rather than my main account but I can't get Amazon to understand either by email or phone.

Thanks

Bank accounts or KDP accounts? If the 2nd, we're not supposed to have more than one KDP account. <You may know that, but you'd be amazed how many people haven't in the past. ;)

If the first:
Click on your account link at the top of your KDP dashboard page.
Scroll down to "Your Bank Accounts".
click edit and make your changes, then hit save.

Word of advice: Don't change that info until after you've received all of this month's payments. Once you've gotten them all, make the changes as soon as possible. Changing it now (or too close to the end of the month) could result in not getting paid as usual (it's happened to others).

Have you tried going into your account information and changing the bank account details on there? I would have thought that was the obvious choice.

Hi.. I have published the book today itself and after one or two books were purchased I changed my bank account details because the account number was not correct earlier. Will I get the payment for this month? Also today's is 24th August so it's pretty close to end of month. And also tell me when will I be receiving the payment?

For books sold in August, you will receive payment on around the 29th October (60 days after the end of the month when the royalties/KENP were earned), so your bank details will have been there in plenty of time. Best wishes. J

Payments going out at the end of Aug are for June sales.

Does that mean my bank account details will be picked later for August sales and it's a correct time to change it?

Under My Account there is no clear option to change a bank account. KDP claims to permit one to add another bank (in Canada) and delete an existing Canadian bank, but each time I try I am denied. Seems to be no help line I can call. So... help!

Problem solved this a.m.
