Bank account and credit card information for your seller account

When you register in Amazon as a seller, it is necessary to enter an internationally chargeable credit card with a valid billing address located in an eligible country. Upon completion of registration, your credit card will be charged the monthly fee (if applicable) or USD $1 (excl. VAT) to validate the credit card. For more information, go to Registration requirements by store.

Use this tool below to know why your credit card information might be invalid and to update your credit card:

In some instances, you may be redirected to financial institution to verify your card with a security challenge, prior to being redirected back to Amazon. You may need to address a separate security challenge to verify you are the card holder for each card that you provide to Amazon, and for each store you wish to sell in. For information about a problem with verification of your card, go to Seller credit card FAQ.

Note: We may periodically run a validation check on your credit card.

Accepted credit cards

We accept the following credit cards:

  • American Express
  • Diners Club
  • Discover
  • JCB
  • MasterCard
  • Visa

Note: We do not accept alternative charge methods, such as prepaid credit cards, gift certificates, checks, or online payment systems like PayPal.

You cannot delete the credit card that is your designated charge method, but you can add a new card or select a different card from the list of cards you have entered in your seller account.

If you have a positive settlement balance, Amazon will deposit the money into your bank account. We cannot transfer funds to your credit card. We may charge this credit card if you have a negative settlement balance.

Bank account information

Amazon uses electronic transfers to pay your sales proceeds to you. Before you can receive payments, your seller account must specify a bank account for us to deposit money into. We cannot transfer funds to a credit card or online payment system such as PayPal.

To avoid payment delays:

  • Your seller account must have a business address associated with it.
  • Your bank account must be located in a country supported by the Amazon Currency Converter.
  • Your bank account information must be up to date.

You can use the Amazon Currency Converter service to register a bank account that is located in a different country from the store where you are selling. For more information, go to Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers FAQ.

Identify your bank account information

To update a new payment method, you would need your existing complete bank account number during the verification process.

This serves as an additional level of security to protect you from fraud. By requiring you to enter the complete deposit account number that you currently use, this authentication feature ensures that only authorized users can change methods for receiving payments.
