We will pay you a royalty within 30 days after the end of the month in which the unit sold. For example, you will receive your royalty payment at the end of March for the sales you made in February. This 30-day period allows for any sales revenue collections, customer returns, and payment processing.
Distribution and Royalty > Payments
Customers pay in their local currencies, but we pay your royalties in the default currency of the bank account’s location. The default currency can’t be changed. You can use a bank account in another location to receive payments in that location's currency.
You will receive payment from Amazon via electronic funds transfer unless electronic funds transfer is not available in your location, in which case you will receive payment by wire transfer. If you receive payment via wire transfer, Amazon may withhold payment until you have reached a minimum threshold in accrued license fees for the applicable local marketplace.
When converting local royalty earnings to a different currency for an EFT payment, the amount to be paid after conversion must meet the minimum amount your indicated bank will allow us to send. This amount varies by institution and location. However, once the minimum amount is reached, you will be paid electronically for the full amount accrued.
Wire transfer payments will be dispersed after they reach the minimum applicable threshold by marketplace:
- Amazon.com: $100
- Amazon.co.jp: ¥10,000
You will not receive a wire transfer payment for any amount below this threshold. When converting local royalty earnings to a different currency or withholding any applicable tax, the amount to be paid after conversion/withholding must meet the above requirements.
