KDP Payment Options

KDP provides different payment methods based on your bank’s location. Alternative payment methods such as Amazon Payments or PayPal, are not available options at this time.

Below are current available options:

Direct Deposit

KDP encourages authors to use direct deposit, because it usually has no minimum payment threshold, is the fastest, secure way to receive your royalty payments, and is environmentally friendly.

Direct deposit—also known as electronic funds transfer (EFT)—is the direct transfer of money from one bank account to another without check or cash changing hands. While Amazon may support direct deposit payments to the country or region where your bank account is located, some local banks require additional documentation to release funds from international electronic payments, and some of them may have a payment threshold associated. Contact your bank for specific requirements to release direct deposit payments.

Wire Transfer

A wire transfer is a transfer of funds done electronically across a network of banks around the world. Wire transfers have minimum payment thresholds and may be subject to fees associated with receiving wire payments or foreign exchange rates.


You’ll be issued a paper check through the mail to the address you’ve entered in the Author/Publisher Information section of your account. Checks have minimum payment thresholds and take longer to receive than electronic methods.

What are the available payment methods based on my bank location?

Note: you will receive the currency you request when setting up your bank and payment information.
