How to withdraw money from your Amazon Associates account

In my post, I show you how to withdraw money from your Amazon associates account, step by step.

To withdraw money from your Amazon affiliate account, you have to set a preferred method of payment. Once you reach the minimum payout requirement, Amazon pays you commissions earned on the first day of each month.

Amazon has three payment options. Payment directly into a bank account, an Amazon gift card, and payment by cheque.

Amazon pays affiliate commissions on the first of each month, providing the minimum payout amount of $10 is met.

Payment directly into a bank account is currently available to 48 countries. If your country is not on the list, you can use to open a virtual bank account in the USA, then withdraw your funds to your account or apply for a free credit card.

Let’s set up a preferred payment method.

1. Sign in to your Amazon affiliate account.

Click on the ‘Login’ link at the top of your screen.

      1. Hello Kolade, thank you for your comment. As far as I know, Amazon still pays on the first of the month. I don’t have my Amazon affiliate website now, so can’t confirm.

    1. Amazon will pay you according to the preferred payment method you set. Amazon also has a minimum payout, so if you don’t reach that, you won’t receive payment. Amazon pays you 2 months late, so if you make a $10 commission in March, you will get that on the 1st of June.

    1. You can not withdraw money from Amazon. Amazon pays its affiliates on the first of every month according to the set preferred payment. Amazon has a set minimum payment limit, if you don’t reach that amount, you won’t get paid. They are also two months behind, which means that the commission earned in March won’t be paid until the first of June.

  1. sir , Amazon automatically pays into our payoneer account after editting our bank information to the account or we have to make apply separately for that

    1. Sign up for a Payoneer account first to gain access to a bank account in the United States. Then use that account number to update your payment information in your Amazon affiliate account. After you update your account details and providing you earn the minimum payout limit, Amazon will pay money into the bank account on the first of each month. Once you have money in your account, you can then transfer the money to your personal bank account. Doing this way incurs fees, I recommend ordering the free credit card from Payoneer and use that to make payments.

    1. Hello, Bryt. Commissions earned in January appear on your payment history on the 1st of March. Providing you earn more than the minimum amount, payment is then made on the 31st March.

  9. Thanks for this info you just make everything easy now… My payment is via giftcard But my question is if I change my payment method to bank now hope I won’t have any problem, and will I be the one to request the money from amazon or they pay automatically once you reached the minimum threshold.

    1. Hello, Aystar. Once you update the preferred payment option, Amazon activates that method from the 1st of the following month. You don’t have to request a withdrawal, Amazon pays you automatically once you earn over the minimum amount. Don’t forget, Amazon pay two months late. Commissions earned in July are added to your account on the 1st of September and then paid on the 30th of September.
