Accessing Funds in Seller Central

Generally, Amazon first settles your account balance 7 days after you register your seller account, meaning that Amazon will initiate a payment to your bank account on your settlement date. Subsequently, the settlement process repeats every 2 days.

To receive payment, you must have the following:

  • A positive seller account balance. This means that the amount of money you made from sales is greater than the amount of fees and refunds you incurred during a settlement period.
  • Valid bank account information in your seller account. For more information, see Adding and Managing a Bank Account.

When your account is settled, we post a settlement report in the Reports section of Seller Central. Amazon also initiates payment to your bank account through an electronic bank transfer. It usually takes 2 to 3 working days for the funds to reach your bank account after Amazon has initiated a payment.
