In November 21 Amazon emailed me that they have made the payment and it should arive within 5 business days. It's been 9 days since then, and I haven't received anything. Usually it takes 2 days. So is anyone having issues or is it just me and I should wait longer?
Hello and thank you all for posting in the forums. Payments are typically issued 30 days after the month in which royalties were earned. For example, we would remit payment for sales of shirts that occurred in April at the end of May , which is approximately 30 days after the end of April. Although remittance emails may be issued earlier than the end of the month, payments typically are not issued until the 29th or 30th of the month. Additionally, please feel free to continue discussing general payment related questions in the forums. However, for your own security, please refrain from discussing specific information related to you, your bank accounts, or payment amounts in the public forums. If you have specific questions related to your payments, please submit an inquiry via the "Contact Us" email address listed in the Merch portal.
Thanks, everyone! I found an email that was sent to me in November 21st: "Amazon Accounts Payable" It says: "The following payment is related to digital royalties for
Amazon.com. It will be paid by bank transfer directly into your bank account. Please allow up to five business days following the payment date for the funds to appear in the available balance of your bank account."
I received my October Payment but Amazon made a very critical error I was to receive my Payments in US$ currency, instead of that I was sent the same figure in Indian Rupees to my Indian bank account (I am from India) For eg: If My Merch Amazon October earnings was US$100 , i was send Indian Rupees 100 could somebody from amazon help me in this urgently, i have sent email to
email@example.com Please help (ps: 1 US$ = Indian Rupees 65)
Tony, could you see if payments could be tied to the purchase date rather than shipment date? The first payment I am receiving for October amounts to only 40% of the actual sales in the month. If shipments are taking up to 2 weeks it means a long time before payment, for example an order received on November 18th will fall into the December allocation, for payment received in our account the beginning of February.
Tony (and everyone else), coincidentally I have just received an email in reply to one I sent on November 25th regarding payment. The answer is what I thought might be the case, but was not sure. It negates my request for payments allied to the order date. I posted as a new thread here
