Getting Paid

Payment Methods

We pay royalties approximately 60 days following the end of the calendar month in which your royalties meet the payment threshold. You'll receive separate royalty payments for each Amazon store in which you have chosen to distribute your title. The payment methods available are direct deposit (EFT), wire transfer (where available), or check.

Kindle Direct Publishing offers direct deposit as a payment method to over 40 countries (go here for the complete list). Selecting direct deposit, also known as electronic funds transfer (EFT), as a payment method allows you to receive your earned royalties without a minimum threshold before the funds are released to you; in a more secure and environmentally friendly way than paper checks; and in your local currency. Because of the benefits of direct deposit, Kindle Direct Publishing will be phasing out payments by check by the end of 2017.

Your bank may have fees associated with some payments. Please contact your bank to verify fees associated with receiving payments.
