How to add (or edit) my bank account?

To ensure you get paid, check that the bank account holder name and banking information you provide in the Banking Information section and the address provided under Contact Information matches the information your bank has on file. Before saving any changes within the Banking Information section of your account, always double-check your information for accuracy.

Note: After you add your bank account, we’ll check the information provided (name, account number, routing number, and/or IBAN number) to confirm we can pay your royalties within five business days. If we can’t validate your bank details, we’ll send you an email with additional information.

Troubleshoot common issues

When entering a bank account, account holder name or contact information, follow the below 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 the Contact Information should match the information your bank has on file.
  • The account holder name and address provided in the Banking Information section under Tell us about your bank, should match the information your bank has on file.
  • 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.
  • When you add or update your address, make sure the address provided is valid. In the pop-up window, you may see an option to select the address you provided or our suggested address.
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 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 or @accounts-payable.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.
