Bank account information

Amazon uses electronic transfers to pay your sales proceeds to your bank account. In order to receive Amazon payments, your seller account must specify a bank account for us to deposit money into it. A payment cannot be made to a credit card or online payment system, such as PayPal.

Add your bank account information to start selling on Amazon

Note:
  • You can have only 1 bank account per marketplace and up to five total method deposits used across multiple marketplaces.
  • If you want to register a bank account that is located in a different country from the marketplace where you are selling, you can use the Amazon Currency Converter service.
  • Each bank account will be verified. During this time (maximum 4 business days), you will be able to sell on Amazon but you will not be able to disburse to your bank account until verification is completed.
  • Prepare the bank documents (RIB, bank statement, certified bank letter) you will be requested to upload, to finalize the verification process.

To add a bank account to your seller account:

  1. Go to Settings available on the top right in Seller Central, and click on Account Info.
  2. On the Seller Account Information page, under Payment Information, click Bank Account Information.
  3. On the Deposit Methods page, click Assign to choose the marketplace you want to link the bank account to.
  4. Complete your Bank Account information and click Set Deposit Method.
    • Bank location: Country where your bank is located
    • Bank Sort Code: If you bank is located in France, please check the RIB/BIC. If your bank is located in Austria or Germany, please check the Bankleitzahl (BLZ) number
    • Bank account number
  5. Success message 'Deposit Method has been updated successfully!' is displayed. You can start selling on Amazon.

Note:
  • In case you want to add another bank account later, go to Deposit Methods page (step 3), click Assign for the marketplace and click Add new deposit method (right-hand side on the screen).
  • To prevent misuse of your bank account, you will be required to verify your existing account details for each new bank account you will add to the first one.

Verify your bank account information to enable disbursement

  3. You can verify your account through the Deposit method page. Click Manage Deposit Methods and click Verify to start the verification.

    • The name on the document matches the name you entered in Seller Central.
    • Bank logo, account number and account holder’s name are clearly displayed.
    • The date on the documents is less than 180 days old.
    • The document is not a screenshot.
    • Upload full document and black out transaction details you do not want to share.
  5. Verify the information on your document is accurate by selecting the four check boxes. Click Submit for verification. Click Continue on the pop-up screen.
  6. The success message ‘Your document has been successfully submitted’ is displayed. The document verification can take up to 4 business days.

Delete a bank account

You can delete a bank account from your seller account as long as it is not selected as your deposit method. If it is the current deposit method, you must add a new deposit account before deleting the older account.

  2. On the Seller Account Information page, under Payment Information, click Bank Account Information.
  3. Next to Bank Account Information, on the right-hand side of the page, click Manage Deposit Methods.
