Payment Report

This report includes information about your payments for sales and KENP read. To customize the report, click on the drop-down menus at the top of the page. This allows you to filter by marketplace, sales period, and payment status. To generate a downloadable copy of this report, click Generate Report at the bottom of the page. You can run the data any time once a payment has been processed even if you've selected to be paid by check.

Note: The payment report only includes KDP payments made after November 2013.

Here's a summary of the columns you'll see in the report:


ColumnWhat you'll see in it
Payment NumberThe unique number that identifies this payment transaction. If you have questions about a payment, make a note of this number.
Sales PeriodThe sales included in this payment happened in this sales period.
MarketplaceThe Amazon Kindle marketplace where the sales occurred.
Payment statusThis will show "Paid" or "Failed" depending on the status of your payment*.
DateThe date when Amazon transferred funds to your bank account.
Payment MethodYour preferred payment method (EFT, Wire, or Check).
Net EarningsThis column shows your net earnings after tax deductions and any adjustments in the marketplace currency where the sale was recorded.
FX RateThis column provides the conversion rate applied to your net earnings to arrive at your final payment amount if it is different from the marketplace currency in which the sale was recorded. The column will automatically update once we receive exchange rates from the bank. For local currency transactions, the column will display "N/A."
Payment AmountThis column provides the final amount that you will be paid. The column will display "Pending" while your transactions are being processed and will automatically update once your bank confirms receipt of your payment.

If you click on an individual payment, you'll see five more columns. This view may also include adjustments made to your royalty payments.

*Note: If a payment shows "Failed," check your Payment Settings what you entered matches what you have on file with your bank. Check for an exact match for the account holder name, routing, and account numbers. You can publish using a pen name, but you must be paid under the same name your bank has on file. If you are waiting for a payment and have updated your account, contact us to let us know you've made a change.
