If you need to enter your bank account information for the first time or update it later, you may do so in your seller account.
Sellers with a bank account in a country supported by Amazon can be paid directly into their local bank account in United States Dollars (USD), Great British Pounds (GBP), Euros (EUR), Australian Dollars (AUD), New Zealand Dollars (NZD), Indian Rupees (INR), Hong Kong Dollars (HKD) and Canadian Dollars (CAD). Sellers are also able to use a U.S.-based checking account to receive payment for sales on www.amazon.co.uk, www.amazon.fr, and www.amazon.de.
In the Deposit Method section, click the Edit button.
On the next page, the default for the Bank Location Country is United States. Use the drop-down menu to select the country if your account is in another county.
To be paid in local currency, read and accept the Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers Terms and Conditions by checking the box in the Bank Account section.
Enter new banking information and then click Submit.
All future payments will be transferred to this new bank account. Updating your bank account information will not affect settlements or payments already being processed. If funds cannot be transferred, they will be posted to your current balance in U.S. Dollars (USD) for reprocessing.

Required Bank Account Information
Use the Global Bank Account Information page in the Deposit Method section of your seller account to enter information for a bank account in the U.S., U.K., or a country within the eurozone (Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain). The information you will be required to provide depends on the option you select from the Bank Location Country drop-down menu.
The following table lists the requirements for each country. Additional country-specific details appear below the table.
Bank Account Information
Routing Number + Checking Account Number
The routing number for your checking account is a 9-digit Federal ABA number. This number appears at the bottom of your checks or can be provided by your bank. Your U.S. checking account must be enabled to receive deposits through the Automated Clearing House (ACH). If you aren't certain whether your account is ACH-enabled, please contact your bank.
Bank Sort Code + Bank Account Number
The sort code for your bank is a 6-digit number. Please enter two digits into each of the three boxes on the entry form. Your bank account number will have 8-9 digits. You can find the sort code and your bank account number on your bank statement. You must use the numbers from your bank statement, not from your ATM debit card.
eurozone (Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain)
Bank Identifier Code + International Bank Account Number + Bank Account Holder Name
Your bank identifier code (BIC) is the code for your particular bank. This code has 8 or 11 characters, including 4 letters identifying the bank, a 2-letter country code, 2 alphanumeric characters identifying the location of the bank, and sometimes 3 alphanumeric characters identifying a specific branch of the bank. Your international bank account number (IBAN) is the account number used for routing funds to your bank account. For example, an Italian IBAN code has 27 alphanumeric characters: the letters IT, followed by 2 check digits, a 1-digit control number, a 5-digit bank code, a 5-digit branch number, and a 12-digit account number.
Fund Transfer Restrictions
There will be a hold on your account after any changes you make to your bank account information. This will impact your automatic and manually requested fund transfers in different ways.
Automatic transfers: As long as you do not enter new information in the 24 hours prior to the transfer of funds, it will occur as scheduled.
Manual transfers: You will have to wait 3 days after you have entered new bank account information for the manual fund transfer request option to become available in your account.
