Getting paid is important so here are some tips to ensure that your account is set up to receive payments from Amazon and how to understand when you will be paid.
When your seller account is settled and you have a positive balance, Amazon sends the money to your bank account using an Automated Clearing House (ACH) or electronic funds transfer. It can take up to five working days for the money to appear in your bank account after Amazon initiates a payment.
Before we can pay you, you must provide a valid bank account as the Deposit Method in your seller account settings. We cannot make payments to a credit card or online payment system, such as PayPal. In addition to this you need to have a valid credit card as the Charge Method in your seller account settings.
The Statement View tab of your Payments Dashboard will display the current balance for standard orders. The current and previous settlement cycles can be seen from the ‘Settlement Period’ drop down or by searching the details of an order number in the ‘Find a transaction’ field.
On the bottom of the page you can check the expected payment amount along with the transfer date for the current payment cycle.
Payment dates vary for each seller based on their registration date. Please see the When will I be paid? help page for more details on when you will be paid.
It is a normal part of selling on Amazon to see funds in the account level reserve on your Payments report and you can find out more on this help page: What is account level reserve?
