Troubleshoot common issues


When entering a bank account Account holder name or author/publisher information Full Name, follow these guidelines:

  • Ensure these fields exactly match the name or entity associated with your bank account. If this information does not match, we may be unable to deposit payments into your account.
  • The name provided in Author/Publisher Information should be the legal name of the author. In the Getting Paid section under Tell us about your bank, this name should match the account holder's name associated with the bank account.
  • When you enter the Full Name for your account, include a space between your first and last name.
  • Use ‘Latin language’ based letters. No symbols or characters should be included in your Account holder name or Full name.
  • Do not include Mr., Ms., Mrs., Dr., etc. as part of your name.
Note: If you enter numbers or any non-Latin characters in the "account holder name", you will get a message asking to confirm the information provided. If accurate you can click "Yes" and continue editing your account, if not accurate you can click on "No" and re-enter the account holder name.

Frequently asked questions


How do I know if an email from KDP to update my banking details is legitimate?

If we need you to verify your banking details, we'll send an email and add a banner to your Bookshelf. To confirm the email is legitimate, check that it came from an email address ending in @kdp-support.amazon.com. Learn more about confirming whether an email is from Amazon. For your security, we will never ask you to email us any updated information and our customer service representatives will never ask you for this information. Please sign into your KDP account and follow these instructions to provide updated banking information.
