How to get paid your royalties by Amazon

Everyone wants to know, how do you get paid your royalties by Amazon if you only have a South African bank account? If you have a book on Amazon, or are planning on posting your book on Amazon, you may have noticed that Amazon won’t accept your South African bank account. Sadly, Amazon posts royalties as checks, and South African banks are in the process of phasing out checks completely. Luckily, there is an alternative to getting checks in the mail! Use the nifty service Payoneer.

What is Payoneer?

Payoneer is an international payment gateway. The service offers a debit card that you can use to withdraw money from anywhere in the world. You can even link your Payoneer card to your South African bank account, making it possible to withdraw money from your local bank.

Once you have signed up for Payoneer, they will send you the Payoneer Prepaid MasterCard. You will have two choices for delivery, post or DHL. Follow the link to sign up for Payoneer and get paid your royalties from Amazon.

Your First Steps

Once you have selected ‘Sign Up’, select what options suit you best and register for the selection given.

Step 1: Make your selections.

Step 2: Register for the choice provided.

Get Paid Your Royalties!

Now that you have a Payoneer account, you can link it to your Amazon account and receive royalty payments for the books that you sell. You can also use Payoneer for other international services like Draft2Digital or Kobo.
