To avoid delays in receiving your disbursements, be sure you've met the basic requirements:
Enter valid bank account information in your Seller Account.
We require all sellers to have valid bank account information on record in their Seller Account because that is the account to which Amazon will disburse payments. You can always change bank account information later if you need to. (However, for security reasons, you will not be able to request disbursement for 7 days after you make any changes.) After funds are released from your Marketplace Payments account, it can take up to 5 business days for the funds to be transferred from our bank to yours.
Enter valid credit card information in your Seller Account.
Your credit card information is used for verification purposes. It helps to authenticate you for the transfer of your funds into your checking account. (We do not transfer your funds to your credit card.) You can change the credit card information in your Seller Account whenever you need to; for instance, if you cancel your card or it expires.
Confirm shipment of your orders.
Sellers are required to confirm shipment of orders in order to be paid. “Confirm shipment” means that you notify Amazon (using tools we provide in your Seller Account) when you have shipped an order to the buyer.
For new sellers, there is an initial 14-day holding period before funds will be disbursed to your bank account. This holding period is an important security requirement and is applied to all new seller accounts. After the initial 14-day holding period has passed, the funds credited to your Marketplace Payments account are automatically disbursed into your bank account.
