Click Reports at the top of this page, then, near the top of the reports page, click Payments. It should show any payments that have been made to you. If you have direct deposit/EFT and have never been paid, even though you have had sales (not free books) before May, use the Contact link at lower right to ask Amazon about it. Good luck!

last November I had 440000 page reads and made $2600. June I had 412000 page reads and only made $1600. It looks like payment for page reads gone down extremely since October 2016. Has anyone else noticed this?

Hi
Payment methods.
I do not have EFT payment possibility.
Why not Western union? (for African coutries)
Is it possible for EFT to put the bank details of my sister which is a UK resident?

It's best to start a new thread with a new question.

If you find this answer, no, you can not be paid by Western Union. One possibility is Payoneer, about which I know nothing personally, but some in Africa have had success with it. There are plenty of threads about it on this forum.

If you put your sister's name and bank account, she will receive the royalties but will also be responsible for paying the taxes.

This is a forum for authors. No one here can see your reports or send you payments.

No one here can change your email. If you click Bookshelf at the top of this page, you will see a link at the upper right to your account, where you make changes.

You can tell how many books you have sold through Reports, which you click at the top of this page. Learn more about Reports by reading the thread on the General Questions forum, "Know your Reports & sales."

Go back to the beginning of this thread and read it carefully to find out about payments.

Thanks for posting that list of Q & As. It has been a very long time since I last published my book on here, but I forgot how much is the minimal royalty you received until you get paid. Can you please or someone else please help me out with this answer. Thank you tons.

If you have direct deposit/EFT, there is no minimum.

If you are paid by check, it's $100.

I like this one "A Unfortunately, most authors on KDP sell very few books. Enjoy whatever amount you earn, but don't quit your day job." :D Very informative thread by the way.

My payment said fail and I've now switched bank accounts to correct the problem. Will they resend my payment or combine it with next month's payment?

Did you contact Amazon directly about this? Use the Contact link at lower right. They may send you the money shortly, or they may wait until the end of the month. It's up to them. But they will certainly want to make sure you do eventually get paid what you're owed. Good luck!

Is there a pay period, after the initial 60 (after royalties reach $100), they we are paid on a regular basis?

If you are paid by check/cheque, you always have to wait another 60 days after you have earned another accumulated $100.

If paid by EFT, you get paid every month if you earn royalties every month, but the royalties are always two months behind. (Example: July royalties paid end of September, August royalties paid end of October, September royalties paid end of November, etc.)

Reread this thread (or at least the first page or two). It will help you.

Maybe I can wait until I hit $100 and then ask to have a cheque mailed to me.
Some more sales are coming. Now I can see my entire sales history. That is convenient.
The technical side is improving.
