Amazon disbursement delay?

Amazon BugWe’ve just had a heads up from Tamebay reader Andy that his Amazon payment hasn’t arrived as expected.

Amazon have told him that his Amazon settlement has been delayed “due to a technical issue”.

Hopefully it won’t be too long before Andy gets his money, but if you’ve been expecting to see a bump in your bank balance from your recent Amazon sales and it’s not yet arrived this may be the reason why.

    Our payment was not in the bank as usual this morning. It arrived at just after 12.

    Ours arrived this afternoon. Perhaps your post hurried them up Chris? 🙂

    Our’s arrived as usual on Wednesday.
    There was a big red message banner on seller central home page, but that’s gone now…

    So Amazon cock up their payments and suddenly in the afternoon the monies arrive. Just proves that they are using the same faster payment system surely that everyone uses these days. So if that is the case why then do they make you wait 4 working days from sending the monies to you receiving it, considering they have already kept it for up to 2 weeks to start off with.

    Do we think Amazon will change this anytime soon ? After all Paypal have gone from our most hated payment method to our preferred payment method and is a lifesaver when it comes to cash-flow.

    darren, I think it take 4 days as it’s an IBAN transfer from a European bank account, rather than a UK based banking transfer

    Why don’t they use Swift then? It’s a same day solution in the EU & US.
