When and How You Get Paid

This section explains when you get paid and the monthly billing cycle we use to pay you.

You can receive payments at two times:

  • When a customer signs up (if you have a sign-up charge, a monthly charge, or both)

  • At the beginning of the month, for any usage the previous month (if your product has usage-based charges) and for the current month's monthly charge (if your price includes a monthly charge)


If you think you'll make more than a total of $10,000 each month from all your customers, you should make sure you have a verified bank account associated with your Amazon Payments account as soon as possible. You also need a verified bank account if you want to withdraw money from your Amazon Payments account. For more information, see Adding and Verifying Your Bank Account.
