Amazon Disbursement delays

If you were expecting a bump in your bank balance today from your Amazon sales you may have to wait a little longer, they’re having payment issues again.

Amazon have posted the following message in Seller Central:

“Currently, there is a delay affecting the delivery of some recent Amazon seller disbursements to bank accounts. Our engineers are working to ensure that normal service is restored as soon as possible. (3/4 10:00 am BST)”

We’re pretty sure that Amazon don’t have any cash flow problems and it’s just a technical issue. However that doesn’t help small retailers keep to the cash flow forecasts they’ve used to promise their suppliers who will still want paying regardless of Amazon paying late.
