* If your payment shows "Failed," make sure that the Payment Settings section of your KDP account matches what you have on file with your bank—exact match for routing and account numbers, as well as the name. 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, use the Contact Us form to let us know you've made a change.
