Getting Paid

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 marketplace in which you have chosen to distribute your title. Available payment methods (direct deposit, wire transfer, or check) are based on the location of your bank. Your bank may have fees associated with some payments. Please contact your bank to verify fees associated with receiving payments.

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. There's also a handling fee of $8/£8/€8 per check payment to authors who reside in the US, UK, or EU countries where we offer direct deposit.

To avoid the handling fee, sign up for direct deposit

After you switch to direct deposit, the change will take effect immediately. You’ll be paid in full for all of your sales, regardless of the amount, in your local currency approximately 60 days after the end of the month in which the royalties accrued.
