How Amazon transfers payments

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 business days for the money to appear in your bank account after Amazon initiates a payment.

Your bank statement might show that Amazon's payments come from more than one source. Amazon Payments, Inc. makes the payments for transactions in which buyers agree to pay on or before the shipment of goods or completion of services. Amazon Services LLC makes the payments for transactions in which buyers agree to pay after the shipment of goods or completion of services.

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.
