How to create a US bank account to get royalties from Amazon KDP?
Do you have a US/EU bank account and want to receive monthly royalty payments from Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP)? Suppose you can only have bank accounts in non-US/non-EU countries. In that particular case, you may be wondering how to receive monthly payments from Amazon profits via Electronic Money Transfers instead of waiting for the full duration of having crossed the minimum payment thresholds and receiving a regular bank verification (or cheque) via postal mail.
As an ebook writer or author, you are aware that the KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) platform, instead of another ebook launchpad including Google PlayStore, Apple iBooks, Kobo, and so on, can provide you with greater sales and a larger income.
Even if you are a US citizen, you are in luck since your royalties can be directly transferred into your bank account in the United States, or you can get payment from KDP via Payoneer. If you are not from the United States, the KDP platform will only transfer the royalties you got from Amazon.com and Amazon markets in your country. You don’t have to wait till the required minimum limit is reached. Once your royalty is due, it will be promptly transferred to your bank account.
Account on Payoneer
