In my post, I show you how to withdraw money from your Amazon associates account step by step.
You must set a preferred payment method to withdraw money from your Amazon affiliate account.
Once you reach the minimum payout requirement, Amazon pays commissions earned after 60 days.
Amazon has three payment options. Payment directly into a bank account, an Amazon gift card, and payment by check.
Amazon pays affiliate commissions on the first of each month, providing the minimum payout amount is met.
Payment directly into a bank account is currently available in 48 countries.
If your country is not on the list, use Payoneer.com or Wise.com to open a virtual bank account in the USA.
Amazon pays into the virtual account. Then withdraw your funds to your account.
Let’s set up a preferred payment method.
Withdraw Money From Your Amazon Associates Account
Step One – Sign In To Your Amazon Associates Account
Click Sign In at the top of your screen.
Enter your username and password.
Step Two – Access Account Settings
Hover your mouse over your email address, and select Account Settings.
Click Change Payment Method.
Step Three – Select Preferred Payment Method
Payment method options depend on the Amazon affiliate program country.
For example, I joined the program in Canada, The United Kingdom, and The United States.
To view payment method options, click the menu.
Canada has two options. Payment by direct deposit or gift card.
The United States has three options.
Get Paid By Direct Deposit
To get paid directly into a bank account, select Direct Deposit.
Enter your bank details and click Save Changes.
The Amazon Associates minimum payout for direct debit is $10.

For a check, select Pay By Check.

Ensure your contact address information is correct.
