When opening a new Amazon seller account in a new marketplace, there are several ways through which you can set up your account to get paid. You can use one of the following methods:
If you prefer to maintain a high level of control over your financial accounts, then you can open a bank account in the country where you want to sell. This is typically a more complex process, as you may need to create a legal business entity in that country. So consult your legal, tax and banking advisors.
If you would prefer not to open an account in the country of another Amazon marketplace, then you have the option of using Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers. With Currency Converter, you can be paid directly in your local bank account in local currency, provided you have a bank account in a country supported by Amazon. Regardless of the country in which you reside, you might only receive payment to a bank account in a country and currency supported by Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers.
How the Amazon Currency Converter Works
When you enter a bank account that operates with a different currency from that of the marketplace in which you are selling, you must accept the terms and conditions of the Amazon Currency Converter in order to receive payment to that bank account. Every disbursement will automatically be transferred to your local bank, in your local currency. If you enter new bank account details, then you must accept the Amazon Currency Converter terms and conditions again.
